Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has won both renewals and SIR JOHN HAWKINS, the second foal of the brilliant quadruple Group 1 winner Peeping Fawn, can complete the treble. Intensified will be ready for this with his yard in such excellent form with their juveniles while Mustajeeb is a half-brother to a 7f two-year-old winner. Taanif has more speed in his pedigree than most of these and looks a threat while Sudirman will be better for his opening run where he missed the break.
