The newcomers Henrytheaeroplane and Joshua Potman will need to be above average up against three recent winners. EPITHET was the most impressive of the latter group when landing the odds with the minimum of fuss at Newmarket. The Godolphin colt should have no problem with the extra distance and is preferred to another winner at Headquarters in Diaz, the only one of these to have won over today's trip. Lieutenant Kaffee won nicely at Nottingham on his debut and could also be thereabouts in a competitive contest.
