Verdict

This has been a tremendous race for Marcus Tregoning, who has won it four times in the past ten years. This year's entry, Hawaafez, looks certain to be competitive as she appeared to find 1m6f testing her stamina at Goodwood after a comfortable victory in a Newbury Listed contest. Songcraft's overall form doesn't quite look up to this standard but any further rain would certainly aid the cause of STARBOARD, who is handed the vote. John Gosden's filly will be tackling this trip for the first time but made all for a convincing success over 1m2f on soft ground at Longchamp last time and is progressing at a rate of knots. Willing Foe takes a big drop in trip after landing the Ebor before a decent run over 2m in a Group 3 at Longchamp. He's another who will enjoy cut in the ground while the selection's stablemate Camborne didn't quite get home in the Ebor after an impressive victory in the Duke Of Edinburgh Handicap over this C&D.
