Jeewana, a full sister to smart sprinter Borderlescott, and Passing Stranger, who cost 55,000gns as a foal, are interesting newcomers but a few of those with experience could be capable of improving on what they've shown so far. Aristeia was only beaten half-a-length in a handicap at Goodwood last time while Rafaaf was sent off favourite for a 7f Lingfield maiden after a decent run in a valuable sales race at Newmarket. But the vote goes to MIDNIGHT FEAST, who may well appreciate the switch back to turf despite a couple of fair runs on the Polytrack and hails from a yard that's hit a bit of form recently.
