Verdict

A fascinating decision by connections to drop Carlton House down to a mile, but he has tended to race prominently in the past and he travels powerfully enough to be potent at this level. Questioning took the scalp of Twice Over at Newmarket earlier in the season and though he has been turned over at Sandown and Chester, his presence alongside Cai Shen, Red Jazz and Tullius suggests that we are unlikely to see much in the way of hanging around from the gate. Such proliferation of pace could set it up for a closer so we will row in with PASTORAL PLAYER. Far from disgraced in the Victoria Cup, he gained a Group 3 success at Haydock before being predictably outclassed by Black Caviar last time out. Set The Trend chased home Dubawi Gold in the Celebration Mile at Goodwood and there will be no hiding place for David O'Meara's stable star on his reappearance.
