Beedee had looked to be treading water before producing his best effort so far to win by over four lengths at Kempton. He's likely to make another bold bid here but preference goes to SANJURO. He improved on his debut fifth to score at Sandown last time and there should be plenty more to come on his handicap debut. Course winner Hipster is more exposed although his best form entitles him to consideration and both Mishaal and Lamusawama are worth a second glance in the betting on their handicap debuts. Majestic Jess won a Wolverhampton seller last week and will find this harder.
