Rhombus faces his toughest task to date but won here in June and has some potential off a low weight. Groundbreaking won by four lengths at Doncaster on his debut and could be anything but BROUGHTON has the form in the book and is taken to recapture the winning thread. Mark Johnston's colt was given too much to do over 1m4f at Ascot last time but had beaten good yardsticks in Red Avenger and Aussie Reigns over this course and distance earlier with Code Of Honor further back. Franny Norton has ridden him to all three previous victories. Sadiq is tried in a visor after finding Ningara too good at Sandown and preferred to Circus Turn of the others.
