Verdict

GOOD CONTACT finished ahead of three subsequent winners when runner-up at Newmarket on his debut. That's the best form on offer by some distance and the Godolphin colt should have the beating of Wonder Of Qatar and Coolcalmcollected. One of the newcomers could prove a bigger threat and Pleiades, a brother to the useful Space Ship, is preferred to Mutasayyid of those.
