Aomen Rock could prove best of the newcomers while Pashan Garh and Martial Art set the standard for those with experience with the former preferred back in maiden company. Canon Law attempts a shorter trip after a couple of modest efforts over a mile but still makes more appeal than Defiant Spirit and Cataria Girl. However, DESERT WINGS is given another chance despite returning a losing favourite at Newcastle. His debut third at Doncaster is the best form on offer and this shorter trip will suit the headstrong Godolphin colt who refused to settle last time.
