Verdict

Silvestre De Sousa could complete a quick double for Saeed Bin Suroor here on board Last Fighter. By Cape Cross, he's been runner-up twice over 7f and should be suited by this first try over a mile though Safarjal is probably the form pick on her placed efforts in the spring and she was fifth in the Cheshire Oaks in May. But Charles Hills' filly was tailed off in a Kempton maiden after a break and we prefer SURREAL. She ran her best race so far when runner-up at Windsor last time so Sir Michael Stoute's filly gets a tentative vote as Basingstoke needs to find more to figure.
