MAZANDARDAN has the advantage of a recent run having made an excellent start behind the odds-on Sacred Dragon here last month. With that under his belt he should go one better and looks the type to have a good season. Mourani had a couple of runs on Turf last year over trips too short and should do much better in his second season while stablemate Sheer Delight is another with potential having shown up nicely on her debut here last month. Mohawk Lane finished last behind stablemate George Vancouver on his only start here last July but is another expected to do much better.
