True To Form ran well when dropped back to today's trip last time but George Guru looks stuck on his present mark. Godolphin are double-handed yet again with Terdaad just preferred to Invisible Hunter on his form at the track. Chapter And Verse and Rustic Deacon have both been thereabouts over 7f here recently and C&D winner Validus is worth keeping an eye on as he makes his belated seasonal debut. However, NET WHIZZ beat a subsequent winner over track and trip on his return to action in September and is taken to follow up with plenty of scope for improvement.
