Verdict

Graham Lee has picked up an excellent ride for Godolphin on board BANNOCK, who will be at very prohibitive odds despite not winning since 2011. He's been placed at Listed and Group level on several occasions subsequently and though not seen since Meydan in February looks in a different league. Set The Trend is rated 8lb lower and has to concede 8lb so will find this very difficult though he's been going well on the fast ground and looks the main threat. Magic Destiny beat three rivals at Ayr last time and has won twice here in the past though both times on soft ground while Bix looks completely outclassed.
