Verdict

MUNJAZ was beaten only a nose over a mile here in October and the half-brother to a Listed winner is expected to appreciate today's longer trip. Paul Hanagan prefers him to Mustadaam and the Gosden colt gets the vote. Dante Stakes entry Wrangler made a promising start in soft ground at Yarmouth and Venezia wasn't beaten far when third at this track in October. Wahgah, Eye Contact and Ian's Memory are others likely to improve this year while Ayrad, Connecticut and Min Alemarat are all newcomers to note for the future.
