Verdict

The betting at Leicester last month suggested TELESCOPE's big reputation was not unjustified and he duly dotted up. Entered in various Group 1 races later in the year, this looks the logical next step up the ladder for Sir Michael Stoute's colt and he should prove the one to beat. City Style has been placed in Group 1 events at Meydan though hasn't raced since March but Noble Mission is perfectly capable of going close at this level. Sri Putra doesn't look the force of old but David Livingston could make his presence felt. The remainder are mostly smart handicappers, although Rewarded and Making Eyes have won in Listed company and should both give a good account.
