Verdict

There was much to admire about Battaash's track record-breaking performance at Sandown and he looks more than capable of winning Group races but he is, as yet, unproven on ground this slow which makes PROFITABLE a more appealing proposition on this occasion. Clive Cox's five-year-old won the Group 1 King's Stand Stakes in testing conditions last year and looked as good as ever when second in this year's renewal. Last year's hero Take Cover remains a potent force despite his advancing years and cannot be ruled out, whilst Marsha would also hold every chance if handling the ground.
