Cairanne has a penalty for winning for the first time in 19 starts at Yarmouth last week and others make more appeal. Hurakan may have slipped to a winning mark judged on his recent placed efforts at Wolverhampton and Choral Festival is only 2lb higher than when scoring at Lingfield in December.

He hasn't raced since 2010 when third to subsequent Group 1 winner Recital at Navan when trained by John Oxx, but he could well be up to winning in this company on his comeback for new connections.
