Verdict

Sir Michael Stoute won this with Derby and Arc hero Workforce in 2009 and he was making his racecourse debut like today's three entries Arbaab, Idea and Matravers, all superbly bred and much respected. Richard Hannon is represented by Frankie Dettori's mount High Master, who is likely to do better in his second season, and Aertext, who should be ideally suited by this trip. Fracking has shown potential on both starts but Rock Of Dreams disappointed at Windsor after a promising start there. Travis Bickle is the form pick as he has been staying on strongly at the finish in both starts at Lingfield but a chance is taken with BEST KEPT, a son of the speedy Sakhee's Secret out of a 7f winner who's first three foals have all been successful.
