Verdict

Despite his injury and illness problems, CAMELOT returned to action in good style over the course and distance three weeks ago, when Negotiate was 8l behind, and the quadruple Group 1 winner should have no problems with these rivals before heading for Royal Ascot. He'll have his pacemaker Windsor Palace to ensure a strong gallop and that's likely to be too much for the promising Al Kazeem. Roger Charlton's charge won a Group 2 at Newmarket a year ago and didn't reappear until last month's Gordon Richards Stakes at Sandown which he won impressively. He'll ensure the dual Derby winner doesn't have everything his own way.
