Dawn Twister, a Listed class stayer in Germany, is ideally suited by testing conditions as he showed when making a winning debut for Lucy Wadham at Ripon. He'll have his ground here but that form looks suspect. Tameen also loves the going and was a progressive type last season. She had a mishap on her reappearance at Goodwood so that shouldn't be held against her and with her allowance shouldn't be dismissed. Twin Soul finished fourth in that Goodwood event but doesn't look good enough so this can go to AIKEN. John Gosden's charge didn't make his debut until last June but improved as the season went on and was such an impressive winner on his return at Epsom, despite a narrow margin, that the step up to Listed class looks within his capabilities.
