Verdict

Godolphin can strike here with INVISIBLE MAN, who comes out comfortably the best on official ratings and showed that his turn is not far off with a close third in the Royal Hunt Cup and a good run behind stablemate Secrecy at Doncaster. Al Khaleej won over the C&D on softish ground last August and didn't run badly in a tough handicap over 7f here three weeks ago, only his second run of the season. He had earlier finished a long way behind Balducci when both were unplaced in a Windsor Listed contest but could turn the tables as Andrew Balding's charge had the benefit of previous runs.
