ANNUS MIRABILIS is no stable start but a maiden of this type should be coming his way after a fair run behind the potentially useful Streetcar To Stars here last month so he's given the nod. Sea The Lion was making his debut when fourth in that latter event and with that experience behind him should get closer. John Oxx saddled that winner and the newcomer Awesome Star is also by Sea The Stars so he's one to keep an eye on while No Wunder hasn't done much wrong apart from finding little at the business end.
