The leading contenders all have similar profiles in that they're making hard work of losing their maiden tags. Both Vanity Rules and Running Deer have tried their luck without success in handicaps while HANZADA has yet to match her effort in Listed company at York back in May. But she went close on her return to action at Kempton earlier this month and looks up to going one better in this. Invincible Magic may prove best of the Godolphin duo but as plenty to find with the principals as does Penny Stock.
