Rodrigo De Torres and Redact are facing a stiff task at the weights in this while Spiritual Star is racing for the first time since finishing tailed off in last year's Greenham at Newbury, though did run in a Group 1 as a two-year-old. PINTURA should find this easier than the Listed race he contested at Haydock earlier this month and this is his trip nowadays. He was fourth in the Group 1 Prix de la Foret at Longchamp in October and is just preferred to Our Jonathan, confined to 6f since finishing third at Chester last July and needing to recapture his best to land this. Morache Music was well behind Our Jonathan in September's Ayr Gold Cup and hasn't been seen since.
