Verdict

A number of these high class sprinters have been struggling to get their head in front including Inxile, who won five times last year but has struggled to get competitive since arriving back on these shores from Dubai. Were NOBLE STORM able to run up to his mark, he makes plenty of appeal at the likely odds. Ed McMahon's stable stalwart is best over today's minimum trip and has coped with soft going in the past. He may just be able to steal this race from the front. Elusivity enters the reckoning off the back of his third in the Palace Stakes while Elnawin often runs well in races of this nature and he was not disgraced behind Markab at Windsor. Dinkum Diamond and Medicean Man are unlikely to be in the firing line from the stalls though both should be staying on to some effect at the death.
