Sir Henry Cecil has a fine overall strike rate at this track and an exceptional one with his juvenile runners. TOUCH GOLD can keep up the good work with improvement expected having finished fifth on his debut at Haydock. Godolphin are well represented, albeit by different trainers, and Zaeem makes more appeal than his stablemate Oxbow and Saeed Bin Suroor's Future Security judged on a couple of third-place finishes. The remainder may struggle to get involved, though Gucci D'Oro and Flashman should finish closer.
