Unexposed debut winner QANOON catches the eye the most in this tight handicap after finding just an extremely well handicapped runner too good last time and there looks to be more in the offing. Guest Book also hasn't had much racing and his run on handicap debut in a better race at Ascot gives him every chance providing he comes on for his return effort. Lord Raglan won over course and distance before finding being held a neck from 3lb better off on his latest run while Dolphin Rock is consistent and looks well treated after his near miss so has to make the list, however, Qanoon may have more to come.
