Godophin's talent pool runs deep and although BIN BATTUTA
is probably well down the pecking order, it has to be notable that he's still being persevered with as a five-year-old. He's been gelded since he was last seen out (in a Group 3 in Dubai in February) but, given that his trainer had a number of options for this at the final declaration stage, it seems safe to assume he's been found a winnable race in which to make his belated seasonal debut. Commander Cole
, a stablemate of Bin Battuta, and the relatively light raced Star Of Bengal
won't make this easy for the selection, while Star Of Southwold
could also be good value to make the frame.
