The Dark Wizard has been knocking on the door in similar company but has become expensive to follow. Hand Grenade is also in danger of earning that tag having found one too good in her first two starts and only managing third at Leicester last time. She's still preferred to stablemate Rectory Lane however. ENFIJAAR, by Invincible Spirit out of 1000 Guineas winner Harayir and a half-sister to three winners, will stay further than this in time but looks to have been found a good opportunity to make a winning debut.
