The last three winners of this had all had at least one run and MUHAJJAL is probably the most interesting of those with experience. Owen Burrows' Cape Cross colt was held up well off the pace on his first start at Newbury but stayed on strongly in the closing stages and has nothing to fear from Padrinho on that run. Abatement shaped with promise when sixth at Salisbury and quicker conditions here will suit. Fortune Of War has only found one too good in his last two but this looks a stronger maiden. Telescope was second in this for the Stoute team three years ago so The Queen's Frontispiece is worth a market check as he's the first foal to race of a Listed middle-distance winner.
