Four runners line up here in the Godolphin blue with Doncaster fourth Curzon Line expected to lead the quartet home ahead of nicely-bred debutant Mojave. He could find SHANTARAM a tough nut to crack, however, as John Gosden's Galileo colt was only beaten a nose by Emmuska on his debut at Sandown and can only improve for the outing. Strident Force needs to step up again on his second at Brighton but Mubaraza still has plenty of scope while newcomers Gabrial The Great, Touch Gold and Went The Day Well all look likely types though may benefit from today's experience.
