Verdict

Giant Sequoia beat Rajeh easily enough over track and trip last time but that was the veteran's first win on the Flat since 2009 and he's harder to fancy carrying a penalty. Zinnobar also beat Rajeh over course and distance earlier this month with GHUFA back in third. But the latter re-opposes on better terms and is taken to come out best on only his second start of the year. Lingfield Lupus finished closer here last time and is preferred to the likes of Hamble and Fire In Babylon.
