Fiercely competitive stuff with DIMENSION a hopeful choice for the resurgent Fanshawe yard. The colt was put in his place by the useful Albaasil in a hot Newmarket handicap last time but does appear nicely treated and can go well from a decent draw. Richard Hughes has gone along with Casual Glimpse from the Hannon trio but looks to have plenty on his plate to reverse placings with Bridgefield on Newmarket running and the Godolphin inmate appeals as the greatest danger to the selection. El Viento is perfectly boxed to race prominently and will go close if staying the trip, whilst Tuscania is likely to be launched down the outside for her challenge. Expect an improved effort from the unexposed Stoute filly.
