Red Rubles finished one place and a half-length ahead of Diaz when third on his debut at Sandown eight days ago. Richard Hannon trained the winner of that contest and saddles newcomer Azmaam in this. He's a full brother to a smart winning sprinter who stayed a mile and must go on the short-list. Andretti is a half-brother to several winners but may do better over middle-distances next season. DIGITAL REBELLION is a 200,000gns half-brother to numerous decent winners up to 1m2f. Charlie Appleby's colt can make a winning start.
