It's difficult to dismiss any of these out of hand so AIR OF GLORY can only be a tentative selection. He scored at Lingfield on his recent racecourse debut and the Godolphin colt should be in the mix with normal improvement. Masquerading went close over track and trip in one of these series of qualifiers last week and Zeus Magic was placed in a higher grade version on his latest start. Autun will have benefited for his recent reappearance at Newbury and has claims while Rundell and She's Late make more appeal than Marco Botti's duo, who both ran below par last time.
