Archie Stevens was still beaten six lengths when fourth at Chester in June while Secret Missile was never going to catch the winner when runner-up here on his recent debut. Puteri Nur Laila gets first-time headgear after a couple of poor efforts so a newcomer may well prove good enough to land this. Line Of Reason is related to four winners and could go well while Opus Cactus is worth noting but HIDDEN LINK makes more appeal as Sir Mark Prescott's charge is a half-brother to multiple winner Emilio Largo. She's Some Girl is another to consider.
