Lady Malet is getting closer and after her latest second over 6f here, she makes most appeal of those with experience. She should take care of the more exposed Peak Storm but one of the newcomers could prove too good. Continental Divide and King Wood are both worth noting for any significant support in the betting but HENRY THE AVIATOR is preferred. The 130,000gns colt is a half-brother to three winners including Eddington, a high-class Grade 1 winner on Dirt, and Mark Johnston's colt gets the nod to make a winning start.
