A competitive maiden further complicated by Moriond and Lake Alfred's participation as both are are newcomers worth keeping an eye on. But BELFILO has the form in the book and may just edge this. He was only beaten a nose over track and trip on his debut with New Tarabela back in fourth and Archiebeau and Storm Of Choice well behind. Andrew Balding's charge may also have enough to hold off Moontown, a Sea The Stars colt who ran well over 1m2f here last time, but Ujagar should also stay the longer trip after finishing runner-up at Wolverhampton in November and he's another with claims.
