Verdict

This looks wide-open. Purple 'n Gold won here in January and went close again last time but he's up another 3lb today and ISHIKAWA has the more recent form. Alan King's charge had been running consistently well on the Polytrack before a poor effort at Windsor last time and gets the nod back on this surface. Rezwaan is another who ran below par on Turf last month and is not easily dismissed but both Mubtadi and King Olav have something to prove now off their current marks.
