Verdict

Slade Power's connections are hopeful of a big sprint double after their Sole Power landed the King's Stand Stakes earlier in the week. The recent Curragh winner landed a Group 2 over track and trip in October and shouldn't be far away. Darwin was well beaten at the Curragh and might struggle to reverse that form but Aidan O'Brien also runs progressive three-year-old Due Diligence. Another three-year-old, ASTAIRE, makes more appeal however. The Duke Of York Stakes is usually a good trial for this and Kevin Ryan's colt travelled really strongly in that contest until just getting outbattled by Maarek. The faster ground here will suit him much better and younger horses have a decent strike rate in this from few runners. Gordon Lord Byron is a Group 1 winner but possibly better over 7f and the trip may also be too sharp for French challenger American Devil. But Aljamaaheer finished with a flourish on his reappearance at Newmarket and will strip fitter here.
