Azrael was beaten less than a length at Leicester on Saturday and appears to have improved of late. Admiralty has won his last three on the Polytrack but returns from a break and Ismail Mohammed also runs Light Burst, who is only 2lb higher than when scoring on the Fibresand earlier this year. The three-year-old Skytrain must have some sort of chance but Majestic Oasis has disappointed since arriving from France and may need more time to acclimatise. POISSON D'OR only beat two rivals here last month but is definitely heading in the right direction again and may well follow up.
