SIROCCO BREEZE pulled too hard when last seen but this son of Green Desert has more potential than the rest of this line-up; the shortlist consists of Glow Star and Cumana Bay. The Godolphin runner is yet another interesting contender on what could be a very good day for the 'boys in blue'. This Green Desert colt has plenty of class on his mothers side as well and is an obvious contender from a good draw. Red Somerset's comeback run was as bad as the effort he signed off with in May, Beat The Bell shaped with more promise here last time out, whilst Spirit Of Sharjah looks high enough in the weights at present. Beckermet is a dangerous front-runner when on song but he isn't ideally drawn, Glow Star looks to be coming to hand and Ryan Moore takes over in the saddle, whilst Cumana Bay very rarely runs a bad race and may have been freshened up by a two month break. An open affair, however the vote is given to Sirocco Breeze.
