Russian Bullet has won twice on the Polytrack this year but is much more exposed than today's rivals and his ability to handle this ground has to be taken on trust. January's Lingfield winner Pucon races on turf for the first time while Subtle Embrace didn't show much on her return to action though did beat Courtland Avenue over this trip at Bath in August. TIOMAN PEARL made steady progress in his first season and tackles handicap company for the first time today. He doesn't look badly treated on his run at Doncaster in November and gets the vote as Chicarito has had plenty of chances.
