Verdict

There's always the threat of a falsely run race in these small fields especially as none of the trio are committed front-runners. A runner-up in Listed company, CENTURIUS is proven over today's trip and despite a below par effort behind Remote at Ascot last time, Marco Botti's charge gets the vote. Mulakim won a Haydock maiden over a mile on his debut and breeding suggests the Godolphin colt should stay middle-distances while the betting could provide the best clue to the chances of Telescope. Setbacks earlier in the season ruled the Newmarket maiden winner out of runs in both the Dante and the Epsom Derby and, although the recent vibes have been encouraging, today could be the day to take him on as he makes his eagerly awaited but belated return over a trip that may prove to be short of his best.
