Verdict

OLYMPIC GLORY only suffered one defeat last season, against Dawn Approach in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot. He won the Group 1 Grand Criterium at Longchamp over a mile in October and is difficult to oppose on his reappearance. Moohaajim was a smart performer over 6f last season, running Reckless Abandon to a neck in the Middle Park after landing the Group 2 Mill Reef here earlier. He looks a sprinter but can't be ignored and is preferred to Sir Patrick Moore, who had his limitations exposed after winning here and in France, while Musselburgh third Hiddon Coin looks well out of his depth. Correspondent also has a mountain to climb according to official figures but at least has some scope.
