Much more solid form on display in this division, although again there are newcomers to consider and a market check is needed but we'll stick to those with form in the book and take ALIX JAMES to score after two runner-up efforts, although he faces soft ground for the first time. Easily swept aside by Walk In Marrakesh in mid-July, that form assumed a healthier sheen with the winner then obliging in competitive Listed company and coming home third of four in a French Group 2. Cruising and Ainsdale are solid enough but neither has encountered soft ground either, whereas Angels Faces is going the right way, will handle conditions and rates the main danger.
