Montbazon is a very useful hurdler and certainly worth a look on his Flat debut. Carraig Rock and Starchaser have been in action in bumpers but Luca Cumani's newcomer Mizzou is more interesting as she's bred in the purple being by Galileo out of a mare who won a Listed race over 1m6f.- she should win races. BUTTON DOWN couldn't peg back Hidden Gold over 1m2f at Salisbury last month but the longer trip here will suit and she can get the better of Shining Glitter, who has also shown some promise. Allegria is preferred to Leicester runner-up Quenelle and Courageous Rock of the others.
