FURY beat subsequent Royal Hunt Cup winner Prince Of Johanne when gaining a deserved win in a Listed handicap over C&D in May and didn't run at all badly when fifth in a Group 3 at Chantilly next time. He looks the one to beat today though Antioco Murgia takes 5lb off Invisible Man, fifth in the Royal Hunt Cup and second in a Group 2 in Turkey last September. Godolphin are also represented by Dubai Prince but he hasn't been seen since running moderately at the Dubai Festival and it's difficult to see New Hampshire figuring as he has a mountain to climb on official ratings and is better over further.
