Verdict

The unbeaten First Mohican was the strong ante-post favourite coming into this year's renewal. He's highly progressive but, stepping up in trip off a 12lb higher mark and racing on likely good ground for the first time, he's worth taking on. Godolphin run four with Mickael Barzalona riding topweight Retrieve, a Listed winner at Newbury but beaten off a lower mark in a handicap back in July. The Tiger is another making good progress and is preferred to stablemate Voodoo Prince, despite a 9lb rise, while Goodwood winner Nicholascopernicus steps up in class having been raised the same amount. Bridle Belle and Party Line are recent soft ground winners who will be hoping for a bit more cut and we may not have seen the best of the lightly-raced Clayton yet. Communicator and Blue Surf are comfortable in this grade and arrive in good form but the vote goes to KIRTHILL. His only previous attempt at today's trip resulted in a victory at York in August and there should be more to come from Luca Cumani's colt over the distance.
