Verdict

BANKSY stands out judged on recent placed efforts on the Polytrack and looks the one to beat if handling today's surface. John Gosden's colt should take care of Molly Jones, who posted an improved effort at Bath last time, but Mantuana can finish closer after her debut fourth at Musselburgh where she had Professor Tim behind. However, a bigger threat could come from the newcomers Samba Night and Al Shaqab, as both have plenty of speed in their pedigrees.
