Aficionado is likely to start favourite in this on the strength of his debut second at Lingfield in November. His stable has made a strong start to the new season. But BEDOUIN INVADER looks the type to make up into a decent three-year-old and will have learned plenty from his first run in a fair maiden at Leicester in the autumn. He gets the nod ahead of Luca Cumani's Singspiel newcomer Jazz Master. Pursivere may have problems with this trip on his debut but may be worth bearing in mind over 7f or a mile once he's gained some experience.
