Hughie Morrison has plenty of runners at this venue, and a fine strike rate to boot, so a big run is expected from Coire Gabhail and she's preferred to Max The Machine. Shillito could prove a threat on his Fibresand debut but PEARL NOIR finished runner-up over course and distance at the end of last year and a return to this surface could see Scott Dixon's charge come good. Master Wizard went close at Kempton on his debut but that was nearly a year ago and he's having his first start since.
