A 34,000gns Doyen gelding, CAMBORNE makes his belated debut here. His dam is a winner on the all-weather and John Gosden's charge won't have to be anything special to get the better of today's rivals headed by Grand Theft Equine, whose earlier efforts at Lingfield mark him down as the best of those with experience. The remainder have shown no worthwhile form so far though the likes of Refractor and Dawn Story should finish closer with their debut experience to draw on.
