Rough Courte has gone close in both starts this year but is vulnerable again to less-exposed types. Sebastian Beach didn't improve on a promising debut at Newmarket last August but perhaps another winter has strengthened him up. Silver Duke showed plenty of promise on debut at Newmarket and must have a chance in this lesser contest but Discreetly could also be one to note in the betting as she's a half-sister to a couple of winners. Cape Icon is another interesting newcomer but MAJORITIES shaped very nicely at Leicester on debut and may have found the drop back to 6f against him at Doncaster subsequently. He should come into his own over a mile this year so get the nod.
Cape Icon Mount Nelson colt out of Cape Merino.
