Tiger Webb and Zain Shamardal discovered the winning habit when landing their maidens at Lingfield and Newmarket respectively and both can figure again now they've got their heads in front. The latter has the beating of Profondo Rosso on earlier running though Sir Michael Stoute's charge was making his seasonal debut and could turn the tables here. However, the combination of first-time cheekpieces and Frankie Dettori taking over the reins proved a winning one for CLUB OCEANIC last month as he scored over C&D. He looks capable of better still and can go in again here.
