Verdict

This looks a really tough heat but Muharrib certainly can't be left out of calculations having won over 6f here on his final start of last year. Intrigo came right back to form when only beaten a neck at Epsom but has been raised 6lb since and Al Mukhdam has gone up the same amount after going down by a nose to Hay Dude at Haydock. The consistency of both Jodies Jem and Party Royal warrants a mention and we suspect Makafeh is better than he's shown so far this term but we want to give another chance to GRANELL. His victory at Newmarket in May was a taking effort and he wasn't given a hard time by Frankie on his return to HQ earlier this month for a handicap, when the race didn't work out in his favour. Blinkers are fitted here to sharpen him up.
