Albasharah was unbeaten in two starts at Nottingham and Kempton last season and may still be on a decent mark. Tepmokea is running well on the Polytrack and should run his race again but Educate couldn't cope with a further rise in the weights at Newbury last time and may also struggle here. SHEIKHZAYEDROAD galloped clear at Doncaster on his return to action without being asked a serious question. An 8lb rise in the weights is wholly justified and he should take all the beating again. Swing Alone won here on the Polytrack last time but this is tougher and Vasily also needs to step up on his third at Epsom.
