Verdict

Swinging Sultan is up 7lb for his latest win at Doncaster but is lightly-raced for his age and may well have further improvement in him. Al Saham is also capable of better this year as he drops back to his winning trip after a pipe-opener at Salisbury. Take Two would prefer some cut in the ground and Icebuster looks stuck on his present mark after winning over 1m2f here in April. Much better was expected from MOLDOWNEY at Goodwood last time but he didn't do himself any favours by pulling hard in the early stages. Frankie teams up with his former yard for this and Luca Cumani's charge gets a chance to prove his latest running all wrong.
