Verdict

It was heavy ground when Annawi scored at Sandown last season while Thurayaat bids for hat-trick off a 6lb higher mark having beaten Bureau by only a neck at Nottingham. But the latter has since let the form down and preference is for LIKELIHOOD. John Gosden's filly has improved with every start this year and a repeat of her latest third at Salisbury should see her go very close. By Jupiter has plenty of scope and could also figure on her handicap debut.
