Verdict

Breaking The Bank was allowed his own way out in front when winning easily at Windsor last week but that may not be the case in this more competitive affair. Mount Tiger has also won two of his last three but seems better on the Polytrack while Hilali may need this. Discression has become disappointing and Xinbama was well beaten at Goodwood earlier this month, though had won his previous two over this course and distance. PERSEPOLIS had little to beat at Sandown but an earlier second at Goodwood confirmed he is on an upward curve and this should be within his capabilities.
