Verdict

Trade Storm finished a creditable second to Asfare in the Celebration Mile at Goodwood last month. David Simcock's charge may well have the beating of Za Approval and the rest of today's field but will do well to get near the likely odds-on favourite WISE DAN. The latter won this last year before going on to land the Breeders' Cup Mile at Santa Anita, where he beat the likes of Animal Kingdom and Excelebration, and it's difficult to see anything getting the better of him this time round.
