Midnight Meeting is from a good miling family and if strong in the market would be mighty tempting, but as things stand it's hard getting away from ZAIN CITY. His recent Leicester conqueror was getting off the mark at the seventh attempt but had shown some useful form along the way and a repeat performance will probably see him home. Junderstand is the other who might have a say in matters.[Alistair Jones]

Raised his game on each start and last time beat all bar an odds-on chance with a BHA rating of 85 over 1m at Leicester; repeat of that probably enough to get him off the mark.

Half-sister to a couple of winners and kept on quite takingly to finish third behind a decent winner (now rated in the 80s) over 7f at Kempton in October; should improve.

Good pedigree but went off at 40-1 at Leicester (1m, good) only ten days ago and never threatened after coming under pressure from halfway.

Showed a tad more second time out but only because she was stone-cold last on debut; up in trip from 6f with a tongue-tie tried.

66-1 and pretty much tailed off over 1m2f at Wetherby, where soft ground might not have been ideal; limited appeal nonetheless.
