There is little between Julieta and All For The Best on latest running over 2m at Lingfield where the former just prevailed. Etibaar and Percy Veer step up in distance but neither offered much encouragement on previous starts over 1m6f and a chance is taken on the progressive AZILIAN proving better suited to the trip. He scored over 1m4f at Lingfield before going close again at Salisbury last time. Burmese has plenty of scope having won maiden over 1m5f at Bath a fortnight ago and can also figure.
