Tiddliwinks recorded a double in Group class sprints last May having finished last in this race on his reappearance. He may be better for today's outing but Jimmy Styles found only the top-class Mayson too good in last year's renewal and he should be in the mix once again. HAWKEYETHENOO won the Stewards' Cup at Goodwood in August and ended the season with an even better run when second in the Group 2 Champions Sprint at Ascot. Jim Goldie's charge is preferred to Captain Ramius, who will find the ground fast enough after a good effort at Doncaster, and gets the vote. Move In Time has won both starts for his new yard including at Doncaster last Saturday but has a bit to find with the likes of The Cheka and Angels Will Fall on today's terms. Tickled Pink hasn't raced since winning her maiden at Yarmouth in June but must have made huge strides over the winter for Sir Henry Cecil to run her in this company.
