Port Alfred has been beaten three times over 6f but won over this trip at Leicester last month. Dual course-and-distance winner Exotic Isle will also appreciate the drop back in distance having failed to stay further here last time while Somoud probably needed his run at Bath and is preferred to Reqaaba, who drops to the minimum for the first time and is tried in headgear. The unexposed GREENERY hasn't been seen since landing a Wolverhampton maiden in November but is from a yard that can get them ready at home and Ryan Moore's booking increases confidence - she gets the nod.
