Verdict

Royal Connoisseur went close again over 6f at Doncaster last week. But he's had plenty of chances and AL SENAD is just preferred. The latter has spoilt his chances by refusing to settle in races over 6f so this shorter distance may suit him better. Procurer was well beaten despite finishing runner-up at Redcar, although he did show plenty of early pace, while Blaze It has a better draw than Sorry Saeed and could prove best of the rest.
