A few unknown quantities here, especially with so many of the contenders stepping up in trip for the first time. MUSAAHIM
has only run one poor race out of three so far, and on the evidence of a fine third at Kempton last time out should improve for this longer distance for a top trainer. Kept on the Polytrack, this looks a good opportunity for him to get off the mark. Mahabba
is in a similar situation and should be the main danger, while Assidious
should be capable of showing more than he has in his two starts to date.
