Mull Of Killough has a penalty to overcome for winning a Group 3 race here three weeks ago when Burano was beaten over five lengths. Prince Siegfried also scored on his latest outing at York though this looks tougher. He wears Godolphin first colours ahead of Rainbow Peak, having his first start since winning the French Derby for Michael Jarvis in 2010. Proud Chieftain and Hajras would prefer faster ground so the vote goes to PRIMEVERE, a Listed winner at Goodwood in September when getting the better of the 113 rated Ektihaam by a neck
