Verdict

Nicholas T knows this place better than most and has been going well here over shorter trips of late, he looks a major contender now upped in distance once more and should be going close. DUKHAN however might be worth taking a chance on. Hugo Palmer's charge ran a stormer behind Old Persian at Newmarket in May and, while he's disappointed since, he has run in better races and on quicker ground. These conditions may see him repeat the form that saw him scare that subsequent Group 2 scorer. Ventura Dragon was a winner at Doncaster in March in his only 2018 sighting and needs monitoring while Speed Company could get involved if getting back near last year's form.
