A winner over hurdles, Day Of Destiny has only raced twice on the Flat and has his first outing for a new yard here. Focail Eile and Spread Boy have no chance at the weights so this looks between St Moritz and COLONIAL. Neither arrive in top form with the former looking particularly out of sorts after three poor runs in September. The latter never figured in Listed company last time but that was his first outing since Meydan in February and Saeed Bin Suroor's charge gets the tentative vote.
