Verdict

Special Meaning beat lower rated rivals in a Listed race at Goodwood last time but is still preferred to stablemates Party Line and Alta Lilea. Clayton stays this far but has proved best over 1m2f up to now while Rawaki is 13lb higher than for his latest win at Windsor in June. The veteran Sirvino may struggle under a penalty after winning a lesser grade contest here and it's beginning to look like the handicapper has over-rated Dare To Achieve. Body Language needs further so Keiren Fallon's long journey north for his only ride of the meeting may well pay dividends. He partners BOLINGBROKE for his new retainers and the former Andre Fabre inmate ended last season with a win at Saint-Cloud. He doesn't look out of place at this level and can make a winning start in the Godolphin colours.
