Tha'ir beat Sennockian Star at Newmarket around this time a year ago and is better off at the weights despite earning some decent prize money in Dubai over the winter. It's now almost two years since the once high-class Wigmore Hall won a race but he'll think he's been let loose on a mark of 97, 20lb lower than at his peak. George Baker places his horses well so the fact that I'm Fraam Govan hasn't run since December shouldn't be a concern and he was looking very progressive at the time. STOMACHION couldn't quite get to Miss Marjurie at Epsom on Derby Day but had Blue Surge 8l back in third and a return to this shorter trip should help Sir Michael Stoute's progressive charge. A line through Border Legend, who was third to him at Newmarket before beating Ajman Bridge at Newbury, just gives him the edge over Luca Cumani's colt and he's handed the vote to get Ryan Moore off to a flyer at the fixture. Charles Camoin is always likely to pop up when least expected and has won off a higher mark in the past.
