This looks tricky given Spinatrix is usually at her best with some cut in the ground and Royal Rock is a rare winner nowadays. Annunciation is another hard to catch right, though capable on his day, while Captain Ramius would also prefer a slower surface. The remainder all have plenty to find on today's terms with the exception of JUSTINEO. The latter has been well beaten in the likes of the Palace House and Temple Stakes this year but this is easier and may he prove good enough having won a Listed event over 5f here last year.
