Cuore was well beaten on his debut and may need more experience while the four-year-old Polar Auroras would be better off in a handicap. Cool Hand Luke did nothing wrong on his return from a break when attempting to make all here last month. He was run out of it close home that day and should be cherry-ripe for this but the fillies' concession to MACY ANNE may prove too much to handle. Robert Mills filly made a promising debut behind the long odds-on Kingsdesire at Kempton in December and with that experience behind her she can go one better.
