It's too soon to write off Mahdiyah despite her returning a losing odds-on favourite here in August. But FIRST WARNING looks a safer bet as he went very close over track and trip three weeks ago - Amanda Perrett's charge looks up to landing this similar event. White Month is thoroughly exposed, though much better than his latest woeful effort over 2m at Chester would suggest while Chattanooga Line has plenty to find with the selection. Bumper winner Devon Drum may get involved on his first start on the Flat with Richard Hughes' booking taking the eye.
