Sir Henry Cecil has a fine strike rate at this track and looks to have found a good opportunity for ROMANTIC to finally get off the mark. He looks more likely to appreciate the longer trip than another disappointing sort in Kaylena. The Calling Curlew is also searching for his first win and gets first-time headgear while Peachez has struggled off higher marks since landing a double last July that included a victory over C&D. Castlemorris King is dropped in class but has proved much better on the Polytrack so far.
