Verdict

Gabrial finished a respectable fifth in the St James's Palace Stakes at Ascot last time just ahead of Saigon while there was little between Sovereign Debt and Red Duke in the Jersey Stakes when Eastern Sun was well beaten. Mister Music has been running well in handicaps though Richard Hughes prefers Crius, who finished a tailed off last in the Tercentenary at Royal Ascot three weeks ago behind fourth placed MUKHADRAM. The latter ran out of steam in the closing stages over the 1m2f on that occasion but will appreciate the drop back in distance and gets the vote with further progress expected.
