Fat Boy is quicker than his name would suggest however DANDY MAN is a class act and can take this despite a poor draw. Masta Plasta and Enticing can chase him home. Formerly with Tracey Collins in Ireland, the selection joined the Godolphin team last year. He was a no-show on his reappearance at Haydock but then ran a blinder at Ascot in the King's Stand, his long-term target. He has stayed at five furlongs (avoiding possible 6f entries) and with plenty of pace in nearby stalls he should get a good tow and pounce late. Crimson Fern has been in good form in lesser races recently but is biting off more than he can chew here, as probably are Morinqua and Sakhee's Song. Desert Lord is a very quick individual and this track should suit his style, whilst other pace angles such as Befortyfour and Masta Plasta must be afforded respect. Starlit Sands looks an interesting three-year-old getting weight from most of her rivals, whilst Moorhouse Lad needs to bounce back to form but did win this last year. A fair renewal, but Dandy Man can take advantage of a drop in class.
