All of these have questions to answer for one reason or another, and DREAMING PRINCESS is only a tentative suggestion as she's at least proved herself capable over a mile and can be fancied to be involved at the business end, given that she's previously gone close under Rossa Ryan on a couple of occasions. Man Made Of Smoke showed improvement last time out, finishing just ahead of the selection, and is considered along with handicap debutants Ballykessangel, Blue Curacao and Outrace.
Prediction : 1st Dreaming Princess 2nd Man Made Of Smoke 3rd Ballykessangel

Ranes won on the all-weather in France and is an interesting recruit for Rae Guest, while C&D winner Biplane is consistent enough to be considered as a serious player at this level. However, preference is for WADACRE GRACE, who has more scope for improvement and she looks to be thriving on the busy work ethic that has been a highly effective method employed by her yard over the years.
Prediction : 1st Wadacre Grace 2nd Biplane 3rd Ranes

Think Climate was a ready winner over this trip at Chelmsford, creating the impression there is more to come, while Maitre De Perles cost 95,000 euros as a yearling and is a half-brother to a Grade 2 winner in the US so needs to be monitored closely in the betting. However, NEVER ENDING, an 825,000gns yearling, is a sister to Coventry Stakes winner Arizona and she edges preference as the most striking newcomer on show.
Prediction : 1st Never Ending 2nd Think Climate 3rd Maitre De Perles

ADMIRAL JACK boasts a smart pedigree, with his dam being a full-sister to four-time Group 1 heroine Winter, and he is expected to know what is required of him on his racecourse bow. The King's Men is best judged on his debut second at Newcastle, with his subsequent run at Redcar coming on heavy ground. Too Much and Wantoplantatree appeal most of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Admiral Jack 2nd The Kings Men 3rd Too Much

RATTLING has turned a corner on her most recent outings, winning two of her last three - both at Wolverhampton. A 6lb penalty might not be enough to stop Richard Hannon's filly from backing those performances up. Carlton And Co is expected to be in the mix after finishing third at Newcastle, while Sir Rodneyredblood and Show Me A Sunset are both capable of a decent showing too.
Prediction : 1st Rattling 2nd Carlton And Co 3rd Sir Rodneyredblood

BRAZEN IDOL has progressed well this season and boasts strong credentials in his attempt to make it four victories in a row. Simon Pearce's gelding hasn't looked back since winning at Thirsk in June and his most recent success at Kempton was a comfortable one, despite being slowly away. A wind operation might aid the cause of Pepsi Cat, a winner on her penultimate start at Ripon, with Starsong and Kath's Toyboy completing the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Brazen Idol 2nd Pepsi Cat 3rd Starsong

KHABIB only narrowly failed to make it 2-2 over C&D last month and having been popular in the market, those who are willing to forgive him that effort may gain some sort of compensation this time around. Silky Wilkie has finished runner-up on both starts on Tapeta and looks more than capable of going one better at this level. Army Of India ran his best race for a while when touched off at Newcastle recently and is shortlisted if rocking up in the same form.
Prediction : 1st Khabib 2nd Silky Wilkie 3rd Army Of India

A wide-open race and a case can be made for plenty, but EASY EQUATION was a cosy winner here in October and although he has been raised 4lb for that effort, he may still be potentially well treated. Quercus Robur makes his first start for Adam Nicol having been bought for 26,000gns out of the Richard Fahey yard and looks an interesting runner now upped in trip. Oh So Chic has finished second on her last three starts, following on from a Carlisle triumph, and is a force to be reckoned with again.
Prediction : 1st Easy Equation 2nd Quercus Robur 3rd Oh So Chic

Although INFINITIVE was a beaten favourite when runner-up at this circuit last month, she may be worth another chance with this extra yardage sure to suit and opening mark of 75 may underestimate her ability. Ralph Beckett reaches for the cheekpieces for the consistent Sweet Fantasy and if they have the desired effect, she can go close. Typewritten looked a bit below par when down the field at Kempton, but a return to Tapeta will suit the two-time course winner.
Prediction : 1st Infinitive 2nd Sweet Fantasy 3rd Typewritten
