Godolphin won this race last year and LION MOUNTAIN can take this with Comradeship and Bullet Train worthy of consideration. A half-brother to Donna Blini; as a son of Tiger Hill one would not be surprised to see him capable of acting with a bit of give in the ground. Comradeship sets the standard from a handicapping perspective. From the family of User Friendly; her effort at Nottingham could go down as something of a disappointment. There will be few horses as well bred as Bullet Train running today. A son of Sadler's Wells, his dam was a listed class sprinter for Roger Charlton. Egyptology is related to plenty of seven furlong scorers so the trip should not be an issue. Parvaaz has to be noted in the market as his yard can have them ready first time out. Sory is watched this afternoon as his breeding suggests that he will need a little more time. Snoqualmie Star has taken on two engagements in Newmarket maidens so connections will have been disappointed that they have come up against some potentially useful sorts for the third race in succession. A race where there is a strong likelihood of future winners although Lion Mountain is offered up today.
