In depth

Verdict

AMINABAD is by Singspiel out of a French 1m2f winner so should have more basic speed than most of these and is handed the vote. Rock Of Glenstal had the short-priced favourite Sarwistan close behind when both made their debuts in the race won by Champoleon at Naas. There doesn't appear any reason for a form reversal and it will be a surprise if the pair are not involved in the finish. Iffjack is another with a pedigree for pace and is out of a winning miler in France while Jackamo is related to several useful winners and is worth a check in the market as is Never Never, a half-brother to two winning sprinters.
