Thakana was a shade disappointing when favourite at Lingfield last time and only managing fourth while Chittenden was even more of a let down at this track last time. Stablemate and newcomer Al Jamal is worth noting along with Everlasting Light while a couple of expensive purchases in Ingot Of Gold and Point of Control make their racecourse debuts. AULD ALLIANCE can boast some useful horses among her seven winning relatives but none more so than the top-class Golan and Sir Michael Stoute's filly is taken to make a winning debut here.
