Saint Lucy should be in the mix stepping up in trip after a debut third at Newbury. Fort Berkeley finished a couple of lengths in front of New Reaction but never troubled the winner when fourth over track and trip last time while Wakea showed enough on his debut over 1m2f at Windsor to suggest he can figure. But ALMERZEM should also appreciate this longer distance having finished behind a subsequent winner on his return to action at Sandown last month and the Godolphin colt gets a tentative vote to come good in this.
