In depth

Verdict

Richard Hannon won this a year ago and JANOUB NIBRAS looks the one to beat here. He started favourite on his debut at Ascot but couldn't quite cope with a couple of experienced rivals and that run won't be lost on him. Godolphin's Gold Hunter showed very good pace on his debut behind New Pearl at Newmarket and that will have done him the world of good but Well Acquainted disappointed on soft ground at Leicester. Pearl Ransom is bred to be speedy and is a newcomer to note along with Windhoek, who cost 110,000 guineas.
