Sir Henry Cecil runs two with Mixora looking first choice ahead of the newcomer Variety Show. The former disappointed when last seen at Yarmouth in October but this longer trip is expected to bring improvement. Breeding also suggests OUTBACK will relish a greater test of stamina. He went close at Gowran last year for David Wachman and wasn't beaten far when sent off favourite at Southwell on his first start for Ann Duffield. He can make the most of his fitness advantage here and come out best as Graceful Act and Airmyles are hard to fancy.
