Marching On's best run came over C&D back in July but his form has deteriorated since and Choisan keeps finding one too good. Neither are totally convincing and MICKDAAM has something to prove now after a poor effort in a much better maiden than this at Goodwood last time. However, his debut third at Newmarket was a decent effort so he's given another chance. The remainder with experience have plenty to find and newcomer Three Darlings makes little appeal, but fellow debutant Brockwell cost 70,000gns and is one to keep an eye on.
