Last year's winner School Fees is 3lb higher and making her seasonal debut. DESERT COMMAND makes more appeal as he's been competing in Class 2 sprints of late and didn't fare too badly behind Ashpan Sam over track and trip last time. Carrying top weight proved beyond Windsor winner Amadeus Wolfe Tone at Doncaster recently while Eastern Dragon landed his earlier double in soft ground. Iseemist looks best of the remainder having missed out by only a head at Windsor last time.
