Verdict

Both Godolphin runners have decent claims. Modun wasn't far behind Dandino in a Group 3 race over C&D in September and will figure with a repeat while stablemate Spring Of Fame won a decent handicap at Meydan back in February. Sequence has a shout on her second in Listed company at York, especially getting weight from today's older horses, but it could pay to stick with VIKING STORM. He's won four of his last five starts with his latest victory at Doncaster the most impressive so far as both placed horses have subsequently won. Harry Dunlop's charge gets the vote to continue his winning ways here.
