Gospel Choir is stepped up in trip for his return to action but Dr Yes finished a creditable fourth over today's distance at Sandown on his debut and makes more appeal. Moshaagib was sent off favourite for his disappointing reappearance so is presumably thought capable of better and he had Blazing Speed behind at Yarmouth as a two-year-old. Almaas was another disappointment on his seasonal debut but Trend Is My Friend could figure. SUEGIOO had a subsequent winner behind when runner-up to Anomaly over C&D on his debut and Marco Botti's colt gets the nod to go one better on that form, though Proofreader and Awake My Soul are newcomers to note for the future.
