Mike De Kock's two entries look useful, especially Full Combat who is on the short-list in a tricky race. EMIRATES FLYER ran a brilliant race in the lucrative Two-Year-Old Trohy at Redcar, just failing to concede 9lb to Ventura Mist. He looks the type to do very well here this campaign and can make a successful start. Godolphin also have Safety Check, three times a winner at Newmarket, and Figure Of Speech entered though the latter became disappointing after easily winning a Newmarket maiden then running well in Group company. Nezar looked progressive until flopping in soft ground at Newmarket and should do better while My Catch landed a Group 3 at Deauville with Make It Reel three lengths behind before finishing last in the Gimcrack. Dolce N Karama has a high rating thanks to a surprise fourth place in the Racing Post Trophy where he was a 200/1 chance.
