Verdict

This looks ultra-competitive and from a shortlist of MANASSAS, Zaahid, Mawatheeq and Flipando we will side with Manassas. The selection won well last month when he beat Extraterrestrial at Doncaster. He has had his problems, but he looks over them now and with the promise of more to come and he can get his head in front again. Extraterrestrial has since been out and run another creditable race in defeat, but it is hard to see him turning the tables with our selection today. There are plenty of dangers in the field and Zaahid has to enter calculations. He finished third in this race last year and he confirmed his well-being when chasing home the unexposed Expresso Star at Doncaster last month. Flipando finished third in that race but he hasn't won on the turf since recording a success in the Zetland Cup at Redcar back in 2007. Mawatheeq remains unexposed but he looks to have plenty on his plate on these terms, and we will stick with Manassas who looks the one to beat.
