Any strong support in the betting for the 160,000gns newcomer Munhamer could prove significant and fellow debutant Artistical can boast a Listed winner among his relatives. Amanada Wolf is worth a second glance along with Aetna but YUL FINEGOLD has the best proven form. His fifth at Sandown in September has worked out well with a couple of winners coming out of the race and Richard Hughes has been booked for his reappearance. Khelman went close at Catterick last season and Lightning Launch was beaten a length by a subsequent winner at Haydock in August and they look best of the rest.
