Verdict

Red Jazz is the highest rated but has had plenty of attempts at winning over a mile before without success. By contrast, French Navy is better over a longer trip and Quick Wit makes more appeal over today's distance as Saeed Bin Suroor has won the last two renewals. There are doubts about Trade Commissioner on today's going while it's hard to assess the form of Norwegian Listed winner Entangle and Godolphin's third runner Swedish Sailor, well beaten on his reappearance at Doncaster. Fire Ship is stepping up from handicap company and a chance is taken that I LOVE ME bounces back to the same sort of form that saw her finish fourth to Immortal Verse in last year's Group 1 Coronation Stakes.
