Frankel colt; half-brother to four winners including Our Obsession (1m-1m4f); beaten favourite, but a respectable third to Jamih at Sandown (1m2f, good to firm) in June, and that form sets the standard; off since and now switched to the AW.

1/1

Teofilo gelding out of a French 1m2f winner; closely related to the 1m4f Group 2 winner Nocturnal Fox; stayed on, but never any match for the unbeaten Outbox (pair clear) at Leicester (1m4f, good) last month; key player.

Forecast

Forest View (1/1), Marechal Ney (5/4), Forewarning (8/1), Galitello (14/1), Toshima (16/1), Wadacre Gigi (50/1), Rock N'stones (150/1), Animated Hero (150/1), Geneva Trumpet (150/1)

Verdict
It doesn't take Albert Einstein to swiftly deduct that the pair to concentrate upon are the John Gosden-trained MARECHAL NEY and the Saeed Bin Suroor-trained Forest View. The Godolphin runner has the advantage of race fitness following her creditable second to the unbeaten Outbox at Leicester in September, but the Frankel colt sets the form standard based on his Sandown third (1m2f) in June. Furthermore, his trainer John Gosden (24-63; 38%) has a better overall strike-rate at Newcastle since May 2016 than Saeed Bin Suroor (11-46; 24%).
