Verdict

OLYMPIC GLORY could prove the one to beat. Richard Hannon's colt had won the Superlative at Newmarket in heavy ground before following up with victory in the Group 2 Vintage Stakes at Goodwood last time when Maxentius was well beaten. Today's rivals will all need to improve to lower his colours in this. Tha'ir has been placed in Group company the last twice but genuinely soft ground will be a new experience and What A Name makes more appeal having beating Avantage in a Group 3 affair over C&D last month. Indian Jade doesn't look good enough and Snowday finished behind runner-up George Vancouver in the Prix Morny at Deauville in August.The latter's latest defeat by Leitir Mor gives him something to find with stablemate Pedro The Great who showed massive improvement to win the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh on his latest start. He's an obvious threat if running up to that level
