Burano takes a steep drop in grade following his fifth at York but it's debatable whether Brian Meehan's colt has improved on his debut at Newmarket in June and we're taking him on with Sir Mark Prescott's filly ALBAMARA. A daughter of Galileo, she was slowly away and then badly hampered on her debut at Kempton but ran on strongly into second place behind Anjaz and can only improve. An entry in the Fillies' Mile suggests she's held in high regard. Dynamic Duo showed some promise on his debut and may be the pick of the remainder, while Tallevu is another likely improver.
