It's interesting to note a rare runner for Mike De Kock at this track and MOONFAARID looks up to landing this. He had a subsequent winner behind when runner-up at Newmarket on his debut and can open his account with normal improvement. All Talk N No Do has failed in lesser company than this and Roskilly has yet to figure, albeit in better races. But there's a host of newcomers to keep an eye on with Cry Joy and Marzocco expensive purchases in North America while Moontown is the first foal of a Group 1 winner. Mutamakkin and Steve Rogers are related to Listed winners and Warrior Of Light is a 320,000gns colt out of a sister to Oaks winner Light Shift.
