Mandy The Nag had Alzavola behind at Wolverhampton last time but Sir Mark Prescott's filly was still very green that day and it would be no surprise if the placings were reversed here. The Queen's Handiwork is an interesting newcomer as he's by Motivator so will certainly stay the trip but we just prefer ANJUNA BEACH. Gary Moore's colt has already shown useful form, finishing second at Kempton before a four-lengths fifth in better company at Lingfield, and looks ready to open his account now.
