Wakeup Little Suzy won a similar event over track and trip last month. But she beat GABRIAL THE BOSS by only a neck and the latter can take revenge on much better terms in this. David Simcock's charge is also preferred to Copperwood, who is still capable at this level, The latter finished ahead of Mahadee at Lingfield before going close at the same track last time. Louis Steward's allowance gives Munsarim every chance as he drops back down in class and he's another to consider.
