Iniesta drops into a seller for the first time but has become expensive to follow. Olly Murphy's pair, Gold Class and Sky of Stars, have a similar rating so the market may prove the best guide to which is preferred but they'll need to improve to trouble PERSHING, a former stablemate, who is rated 16lb higher. Kevin Frost's new charge won a similar race at Southwell in July by eight lengths and wasn't disgraced on the all-weather earlier this month.
