PADISHAKH (FR) (Wootton Bassett {GB}) earned TDN Rising Star status on debut when beating the subsequent winner Halfway Line (GB) (Zoffany {Ire}) at ParisLongchamp at the start of last month. Jean-Claude Rouget keeps Nurlan Bizakov's bay out of black-type company for now, with Ecurie Jean-Louis Bouchard's Deauville winner King Of Records (Fr) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) from the Fabrice Chappet stable a key opponent.

LONDONER (IRE) (Saxon Warrior {Jpn}) is one of two Ballydoyle representatives in this and is a €270,000 Goffs Orby graduate whose dam is the G1 Prix de l'Abbaye heroine Gilt Edge Girl (GB) (Monsieur Bond {Ire}). The April-foaled chestnut meets Newtown Anner Stud Farm Ltd's fellow newcomer Mr King (Ire) (Kingman {GB}), a Ger Lyons-trained half-brother to the G3 Munster Oaks winner and G1 Pretty Polly S. third Thunder Kiss (Ire) (Night Of Thunder {Ire}).


5.50 Kempton, Novice, £9,900, 2yo, 7f (AWT)
HIGHER LAW (IRE) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}) is yet another Charlie Appleby blueblood introduced at a track he favours, being a homebred son of Godolphin's G1 Fillies' Mile, G2 May Hill S. and G2 Cape Verdi winner Certify (Elusive Quality). The February-foaled half-brother to this year's Listed Abu Dhabi Championship scorer Law Of Peace (GB) (Shamardal) faces nine on this racecourse bow.
