Verdict

The drop back in trip on fast ground is a worry for GOLDEN TOWN but bigger doubts surround the opposition. Saeed bin Suroor's charge won nicely over a mile here three weeks ago and gets a tentative vote. Highland Colori has the past form over track and trip to figure though he hasn't looked like winning in pattern company this year. Jammy Guest posted a better effort in a classified contest at Doncaster last time but his stablemate Excellent Guest remains in woeful form. Noble Citizen landed a double at Southwell early in the year but last won on this surface in 2011.
