Verdict

Prince Bishop pipped his more strongly-fancied stablemate Royal Empire at the post in a Group 3 at Kempton. Masterstroke was well beaten in the same race and Saeed Bin Suroor's charge should go close given he's perfectly at home in soft ground. However, a chance is taken that there's more to come from Listed winner NICHOLS CANYON having scored in soft ground at Ascot earlier this month and he gets the nod. Sugar Boy has every chance on his best form though his recent efforts are a worry and he was well beaten once again on his debut for Marco Botti at Goodwood. Quiz Mistress picked up a Listed race in France and makes more appeal than Model Pupil and Cubanita.
