Fury finished fifth behind the mighty Frankel in the 2000 Guineas and was only beaten a nose by Tazahum in a Listed race at Sandown on his latest start. But he has a bit to find with Slim Shadey on that classic run and also has to give 2lb to a tough and improving miler in CAI SHEN, who gets the vote. Richard Hannon's colt only went down by half-a-length to Sagramor in the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot when attempting to concede 6lb to the winner, who was also drawn on the favoured stands side. Neither Casual Glimpse nor Bridgefield look good enough to trouble the principals.
