Verdict

Zidane reappears quickly after his fair effort in the Golden Jubilee and James Fanshawe's gelding has to be respected dropped down into Group 3 company on ground that will suit. But preference is for the reappearing GREEK RENAISSANCE, who gets the vote with Utmost Respect rated the pick of the remainder. The selection has to give weight away all round after his success in this grade at Newmarket in October but Godolphin's team are in good form right now and, with ideal ground conditions, the five-year-old is fancied to make a winning return. Eric Alston's Reverence is not as good as he once was but is still capable of decent form so cannot be discounted, while Brave Prospector is less exposed than most of these after just seven career starts but has to improve, stepping up from handicap company. Richard Fahey's Utmost Respect should appreciate the return to six furlongs having seemingly been outpaced over the minimum trip last time and has to be considered but preference is for Greek Renaissance.
