SUJET BELLAGIO won his maiden over C&D in January and wasn't disgraced when third on his return to action at Ripon last week. He can race off the same mark here and makes most appeal with Frankie taking over the reins. Bint Alzain scored over 7f at Kempton last month but couldn't get involved from a wide draw back at the same track last time. She's not out of this and Take A Note has scope for further improvement having won a classified event on the Polytrack on his latest start. Boudoir and Sweet Ovation look in the handicapper's grip now while Ghost Train has a bad draw to contend with.
