Saeed Bin Suroor can boast an impressive strike rate at this track and MIZBAH looks the one to beat in this opener. He's finished runner-up on his last two starts over 6f and should open his account here with the extra distance in his favour. The newcomer Artistic Thread also hails from a yard that gets its fair share of winners at the track. He cost 38,000 euros and could prove the biggest threat to the selection ahead of Tidal Way, who will have come on for his debut fourth over today's trip at Newbury where he had Valley Of The Stars five lengths behind.
