High Troja was still beaten five lengths when runner-up over 7f here in testing ground. Saying that, he makes more appeal than Gods Gift, a well beaten third in soft going at Leicester on his debut. Planchette has shown nothing so far but the debutant Himalayan Peak can count the useful Orcadian, a winner in heavy ground, among his relatives. Fellow newcomer MUTASHADED is out of a sister to a couple of German Derby winners and a German Oaks winner. There's a good chance Roger Varian's colt will cope with underfoot conditions and he gets the tentative vote.
