Verdict

In the absence of convincing form this may go to a newcomer, with CANTOR selected. The apparent pick of the Gosden pair, our selection is beautifully bred being closely related to the high-class Pretty Polly winner Chorist and the colt is also bred to be effective at two, so providing market signals are positive it could pay to side with him. Stable companion Ballistic also needs watching as there's speed and quality in his pedigree, as there is in that of Chenonceau, whereas Tropical Beat may want further. Arizona High may be the pick of Andrew Balding's pair ahead of Whiplash Willie who hasn't shown enough so far, with Mulaqen rated best of those to have raced. He was no match for the winner at Nottingham but can only improve and could go well.
