Verdict

Paschendale appeared to improve out of all recognition when scoring here a couple of weeks ago with the favourite, Blue Tiger's Eye, back in sixth. But the latter had beaten the winner out of sight last March and may just have had an off day. Mawhub made a winning debut here a year ago and ran well in his two subsequent starts so the lack of a recent outing shouldn't pose a problem. SOMALIAN scored for Andre Fabre in France and really caught the eye on his debut over a mile a fortnight ago, staying on from the rear when the race was all over. He has plenty of scope to progress and looks the one to beat. Almoonqith made a winning debut for Jean-Claude Rouget at Chantilly last March and was lightly-raced subsequently so is one to keep an eye on as he has his first start for Mike De Kock.
