Several unexposed types make their handicap debuts here including Indignant, a three-length winner at Nottingham at the start of the month. BURNING BLAZE made all over C&D last month, keeping on well for pressure in the closing stages. The second, third and fourth have all franked the form since and Kevin Ryan's colt still holds entries in the Mill Reef Stakes and Middle Park so will be expected to go close here if he's to take up those engagements. Majestic Moon has also had just the two starts and bolted up in the second of those at Ayr while Kamchatka and Mitchell are also open to further improvement. Royal Aspiration and Prince Regal are others who bring winning form into the race while The Taj and Star Of Rohm look the pick of the remainder.
