MUTAZAMEN is the one to beat in the opener. He got off the mark at Newmarket a fortnight ago with a cosy win over 6f and that's superior form to Mick Duggan's debut win in a claimer over C&D on Thursday. Didn't I Do Well doesn't look much of a threat on breeding while fellow newcomer Vodnik is a half-brother to a winner over 1m2f. He'll find today's trip short enough on his debut but is worth monitoring in the betting nevertheless.
