Memory Styx failed to deliver at Kempton last time having made a promising debut at Wolverhampton. A high draw in this doesn't do her any favours so a chance is taken on one of the newcomers. Inciting Incident's half-sister scored over 5f for Ed McMahon last year and Atlantic Affair should be noted in the betting representing a powerful yard. Strictly Glitz and Doncaster Belle are others to keep an eye on but a speculative vote goes the way of CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT. His dam, the aptly-named Beverley Macca, won four times over the minimum trip and his half-brother made a winning debut as a two-year-old.
