The newcomers will no doubt attract plenty of attention given Mutamakkin cost 250,000gns and Rochambeau is a brother to winning stablemate Theodore Gericault. Kingdom's Call is a half-brother to the useful Shumoos and Mikael Barzalona prefers him to 180,000gns stablemate Bombardment. The betting may prove a useful pointer to the relative chances of the above but ADVENTURE SEEKER has the best form in the book. He kept on well to finish a close fourth at Sandown last time and is preferred to likes of Lightning Shower and Dover The Moon.
