Related wasn't beaten far at Goodwood last month but has squandered easier opportunities than this in the recent past and isn't one to rely on. Set The Trend won off a 12lb higher mark last year but appears to have lost the plot and Compton disappointed back on Turf at Doncaster in March and hasn't been seen since. SHOWBOATING has been running a lot better than form figures would suggest and gets the vote. He won four times last year and is starting to come down the weights again, though he has developed a costly habit of starting slowly. Tamayuz Star is eased in grade but hasn't really fired so far this season.
