In depth

Verdict

Any strong support for the Godolphin representative Active Spirit could prove significant on his debut. Fellow newcomer Little Shambles is also worth a second glance as she's a half-sister to the very useful Rahiyah. AL SENAD has the benefit of experience when third at Yarmouth in September. The runner-up went on to Listed success in France so the form looks solid enough and the Chapple-Hyam colt gets the nod. Bahamian C has gone backwards since a promising start at York in June but still looks best of the remainder.
