Verdict

Germany's Zazou ran well in the World Cup last year but rarely performs at a trip this short nowadays. Sarkiyla did well in France last season, though she failed at the highest level, but Group 2 winner Penitent ran a fine race behind Gordon Lord Byron on ground much too heavy in the Prix La Foret at Longchamp in October and must be on the shortlist. RED JAZZ led for much of the way in this a year ago and would have been sharpened up by a run behind African Story three weeks ago when Surfer was in front of him. It would be no surprise to see him reverse the form and he looks a speculative each-way bet in probably the trickiest race on the card. Soft Falling Rain is now unbeaten after six runs, including the 2000 Guineas here last month. This is a much stiffer assignment as he faces older horses for the first time and Mike De Kock also has last year's Group 1 Jebel Hatta winner Master Of Hounds and Rerouted, who has found his form again. Both the latter's recent victories have been over 7f but has no problems with this trip while Grade 1 winner Alpha is very much better than he showed behind a stablemate here last month.
