Incorporate went close on the all-weather last time but The Welsh Wizard is preferred on his debut second at Wolverhampton last month. Helmsley Flyer and Inigo Montoya have it all to do while White Coppice takes a big step up in trip having failed to figure in valuable sales races at the end of last season. SPACE SHIP makes more appeal as John Gosden's Galileo colt was beaten less than a length when fifth over a mile here in September. He could prove a different proposition over middle-distances this season and gets the nod. Duke Of Yorkshire is another to consider stepping up in trip as he's a half-brother to the French Derby winner Voix Du Nord while Moves Like Jagger may prove best of the newcomers ahead of Hollow Beat.
