Alzammaar improved at Kempton three weeks ago though he never troubled the winner and the form looks nothing special. However, he still makes more appeal than Hammered Silver and Nam Hai, both well beaten on their respective debuts. FIRST MOVE is a half-brother to a Listed winner in France amongst others and given his yard's excellent strike rate at the track this year, Mark Johnston's newcomer gets the vote.
