MON AMI JOLIE made a winning debut over 6f at Wolverhampton last month. His breeding and the style of his victory suggests he'll stay today's longer trip and he can follow up. Mark Brisbourne continues to squeeze improvement out of Qeethaara, though he's up another 3lb after recording his third win over C&D a fortnight ago when beating Mister Green, while Prince Of Sorrento can't be easily dismissed despite a penalty for last week's victory over 7f at Lingfield. Cativo Cavallino and Jumeirah Liberty finished second and third respectively at the same track last time and are closely matched on that form.
