Verdict

Godolphin won this last year and though Special Boy will appreciate today's extra distance, he was still a disappointing favourite at Haydock on his debut. ICENI GIRL is also bred to improve over today's trip. She finished fourth over 6f at Goodwood last month and can only be a speculative selection here given we're guessing at the ability of some potentially smart newcomers. Those include Poetic Lord, a half-brother to six winners including the useful Millennium Force, and his stablemate Endowing with Ryan Moore on board. John Lightbody is related to a Listed winner and Goldoni is a half-brother to dual winner Gunner Lindley, but Captain Cardington may need a longer trip to show his best.
