Verdict

AL KAZEEM proved no match for Sea Moon in the Great Voltigeur at York but, back over his favourite track and trip, can oblige today. Roger Charlton's three-year-old comfortably won a handicap over C&D on his penultimate outing and gets a generous weight allowance from the older horses in this. Green Destiny carries an additional penalty for his win in a Group 3 at York, which will make life tough, but Sri Putra has to be a danger as he generally keeps better company. If he can reproduce his run behind So You Think in the Eclipse he'd probably win this, though invariably runs on when it's all too late. Dangerous Midge was a revelation last year, winning the Breeders' Cup Turf on his final start. But he hasn't been seen since finishing tailed off in Dubai in March and is probably having a pipe-opener here in preparation for another trip to the States.
