Ed and Simon Crisford's Casting Vote should have no trouble breaking his maiden and it may come in the second division of the Sky Sports Racing HD Virgin 535 Novice Stakes at Windsor.

On his debut at Haydock he found just one too good, Ralph Beckett's Albaflora, who was also having her first run.

There was certainly no disgrace in coming off second best to her, given she finished second in the Musidora at York on Thursday, but the form has also been boosted by the third, Ed Walker's Matthew Flinders, who created a good impression when winning at Doncaster.

Fourth on his debut in that red-hot Newmarket novice race won by Eye Of Heaven, he then had the misfortune of bumping into Owen Burrows' Twaasol.

It is unlike one from that yard to be fully tuned up first time out but he proved he is way above average by winning the Woodcote Stakes at Epsom next time out.

Zamaani has most to fear from Richard Hannon's Host, he shaped nicely on his first run too and can be expected to take a big leap forward but the Crisfords' runner gets the vote by virtue of having more experience.
