Having returned a losing favourite on a couple of outings earlier, Wentworth finally came good in a hot handicap at Goodwood last time. He had the re-opposing Mark Johnston-trained duo Es Que Love and Windhoek back in the field and should go close again. However, SANDAGIYR was beaten only a length in third on that occasion despite not getting the clearest of runs. He'll need some luck in-running from a high draw in this too, but the Godolphin charge gets a tentative vote to turn the tables nonetheless. There's a suspicion that Pintura is best over 7f nowadays while Queensberry Rules, Validus and Able Master are all looking to put recent poor efforts behind them but capable of getting involved if doing so. Prince Of Johanne and Norse Blues have a bit more to find off their current marks as does the Irish raider Hot Bed.
