John Gosden complicates matters here by saddling three. BOIS DE BOULOGNE, owned by Godolphin, made a very encouraging debut at Wolverhampton when finishing strongly and can go one better. His stable companion Naseem led for most of the way before fading when tackling 1m2f at Lingfield so the drop in trip should be in his favour while newcomer Shamrokh, a 200,000gns yearling, is a half-brother to four winners. Desert Grey has improved massively since racing on Polytrack and ran on when headed over 7f at Kempton while Garbanzo was always in the firing-line when a close third at Lingfield last month. Auberge Du Lac made a satisfactory debut at York in October and will have come on for the experience while the Stoute camp run Olive Branch, who is related to plenty of winners.
