Verdict

DANCHAI is the least exposed but not far behind other leading contenders on his nine-length demolition of the opposition at Hamilton last month. He gets the vote to go on to better things here while Nicholascopernicus finished ahead of Samba King at Ascot back in June and should come out best of that pair once again. Freddy Q and The Quarterjack are more closely matched on their latest running at Goodwood and winning debutant Muharrer is facing different conditions having won over 1m2f on fast ground. Commitment has failed to fulfil his early season promise and the jury is out on him at present.
