Godolphin play a strong hand with a couple of recent winners on show. Kiz Kulesi won a handicap at Newmarket last time and looks sure to be in the mix despite a 7lb rise but preference is for VOLCANIC WIND. He had the opposition strung out behind when landing a maiden over 7f here in good style and looks the more progressive of the pair. Basseterre is still improving judged on his latest Newmarket success but Shamir is upped in class off a higher mark having scored over track and trip in September. True To Form could prove best of the rest.
