Dynamic Duo didn't improve much on his debut effort when second at Epsom last week, but Hyperlink stepped up on his earlier form to finish runner-up at Chepstow. Progress is expected from Imperial Order over today's extra furlong, but the most improvement could come from Rawaafed, who shaped well on his debut over 6f at Newmarket and will be much better suited by today's trip. Mahmood Al Zarooni runs three newcomers and Frankie sports the Godolphin first colours on ENCKE. He's a brother to stablemate and Group 3 winner Genius Beast and gets the vote ahead of fellow debutant Kaiser Wilhelm. The latter can boast Group winners Hattan and Tastahil among four winning half-brothers, while Deia Sunrise, Bridgehampton and Perennial are others to note.
