Almuhalab was well beaten on his debut over 7f here last year and takes a big step up in trip for his reappearance. Aussie Andre and Undress look more likely to improve over this longer distance than Hoist The Colours, a modest sixth at Windsor last time. But GWAFA makes most appeal on the back of a second over 1m4f at Newbury earlier in the month and Marco Botti's colt can open his account in this company.
