Verdict

Aidan O'Brien won this a year ago with Daddy Long Legs and his Lines Of Battle landed a Listed contest on Polytrack at Dundalk before a fair run from a poor draw behind stablemate George Vancouver in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf. Law Enforcement won a maiden and two nurseries before landing the Group 1 Gran Criterium at San Siro where he probably didn't beat much. Dice Flavor won a Grade 3 on Tapata at Golden Gate Fields last month while the Japanese raider Keiai Leone won a Listed contest in very impressive fashion in November. Secret Number impressed with his attitude when beating Zahee in a Listed contest here three weeks ago and is one of four Godolphin entries though the home team have another real chance with SHURUQ, who is handed the vote after stepping up to this trip for the first time last month in the UAE Oaks and running out a comfortable winner. Now Spun also represents Godolphin and he could be anything after a very impressive Listed victory on Turf last month.
