Splendid Light made a promising debut at Newmarket on his debut in October and could go close, but the fitness advantage of DYNASTIC could give him the edge. He'll have come on for his recent comeback fourth at Lingfield and the Hannon team are beginning to get into full swing now as the new Flat season approaches. Plumbago Blue is a newcomer worth noting for any support and Niceofyoutotellme could prove best of the remainder as he showed up well on his racecourse debut at Warwick last summer.
