Verdict

Saeed Bin Suroor holds the key to this race and we'll agree with Frankie in siding with SIROCCO BREEZE ahead of Secrecy. The five-year-old won a pair of handicaps in Dubai over the winter and has gradually found his form on these shores, culminating in a fair Haydock second last time. He looks sure to stay the trip and can repay Dettori's faith by beating Secrecy, who ran an improving sort very close at Salisbury. That was only his second start of the year and with improvement to come Ted Durcan's mount can't be dismissed. Riggins caught the eye travelling well in the Hunt Cup only to find one too good and he coped well with the step up to Group Two company at Goodwood. Andrew Balding's charge is two-from-two on the all weather and rates a massive threat to the Godolphin pair, with Cloudy Start surely flattered by his rating and the interesting Capital Attraction having to leave his maiden form well behind to win this.
