Good Luck Charm ran his best race to date when runner-up over C&D last time and King Vahe made a promising debut when a close-up fifth over 7f here earlier in the month. Masters Blazing and Santadelacruze posted better efforts on their latest starts, while both Lancaster Gate and Duke Of Clarence look sure to come on for their introductory outings. However, a stack of winners have come out of the maiden in which SPANISH WEDDING finished sixth at Sandown in August so Marco Botti's colt gets the nod in a wide-open maiden.
