Classical Art caught someone's eye on his Warwick debut as he started favourite for a Brighton maiden a couple of weeks later but found Collaboration, who has followed up, just too strong. Elite Force was unfancied on his debut at Newbury but came with a steady run and will have learned plenty. Heisman attracted some support on his debut here at the beginning of the month and ran a fine race behind the short-priced Bustopher. Ian's Memory was close up in both starts last season, including here in October, while Munjally wasn't beaten far in any of his four races including a decent handicap at Goodwood. NIGEL'S DESTINY made his debut over 7f at Lingfield in October and stayed on nicely after getting outpaced. This should be his trip and he's handed the vote. Stampede has looked moderate so far and could do better over further in time.
