Sherston would be the pick on his Turf form but he hasn't been seen since a poor run in a Yarmouth nursery in October and will probably start a short price. He's taken on here by WOODBRIDGE, a half-brother to six winners including Overturn and he'll know more this season following his run in a Hamilton maiden in July. Brigliadoro must have impressed someone on his debut at Newmarket in November despite finishing eighth of 10 as he started odds-on at Wolverhampton a couple of weeks later but was never able to get to the winner and beaten six lengths. The betting should tell us more about the newcomers but Mindyourownbusiness cost 52,000gns and is one to keep an eye on.
