Aktabantay made a very encouraging debut at Newmarket, narrowly failing to overhaul the winner after missing the break. The extra furlong should suit and he might be an above-average juvenile but will be feeling the full force of Godolphin in this with the boys in blue represented by a trio of well-bred debutants. Charlie Appleby's Skygazer and Star Citizen should win races but Kieren Fallon rides FINAL DECISION for Saeed bin Suroor. By Dubawi and only the second foal of Ribblesdale Stakes winner Silkwood, he could be a group horse in the making. Dr No needs to improve on his first run over 5f here but Gideon Jukes and Prophesize are interesting runners.
