Verdict

OBLIGATION is easily the pick of those with experience and should take this unless there is something special amongst the newcomers. A son of Galileo, he's a half-brother to several winners and made an impressive debut when coming with a late run and just failing to catch Rising Wind at Listowel. His stablemate Seville looks one to watch out for as he's another son of Galileo out of a French Group 3 winner at middle-distances. Dubai Prince is related to several winners and is another to keep an eye on though he should prefer further in time while Mataajir is a likely type for this being a half-brother to the very useful miler Mustameet.
