Ayers Rock can boast three winning relatives and Jalingo is a half-brother to five winners. The dam of Provident Spirit is related to Persian Punch and John Gosden's 150,000gns colt is another newcomer worth keeping a close eye on. Master Of Alkmaar made a promising start at Windsor before a disappointing effort here last month and it could pay to stick with SIR ROBERT CHEVAL in this. Marco Botti's colt can put the experience of a debut third at Yarmouth to good use and gets the vote to open his account
