Verdict

Certerach produced a shock when beating CAVALRYMAN at Meydan but the latter has been in much the better form subsequently. He had Angel Gabrial, Forgotten Voice and an out-of-sorts Estimate behind in the Goodwood Cup and there doesn't appear any apparent reason for a form reversal. High Jinks is a very useful stayer, as he showed in France last time, though he prefers some cut in the ground and that appears unlikely here. Dermot Weld doesn't send horses to the UK unless they are fancied and Pale Mimosa looks a smart prospect after her excellent Listed victory at Leopardstown, though she could also do with some rain. Times Up doesn't look the force of old.
