Mainly newcomers but some likely looking types, notably COME ON LEICESTER and Queen Of Bermuda. Their price tags rocketed after they breezed at Newmarket last month, so presumably they showed plenty, and their trainers each won this race with a newcomer in recent years. Note also, Come On Leicester's dam won this maiden, so this one might be the answer.[Ron Wood]

16-1, didn't handle the right-handed bend when unplaced at Kempton on debut; is the only one of these with experience, and open to improvement, but probably needs to prove useful.
