Verdict

Another potentially informative maiden and Excellent Result is probably the pick of those with experience. The Godolphin colt was less the three lengths behind the well-regarded Telescope on his debut at Newmarket but let backers down at Goodwood subsequently. Tom Queally has chosen another Newmarket third, Squire Osbaldeston, ahead of Hamelin, the first foal of Oaks winner Love Divine, while the Street Cry newcomer Circus Turn carries The Queen's colours along with the more experienced White Month. FEEL LIKE DANCING is by Galileo and a full brother to Suraj, who won up to 1m6f as a three-year-old. Stamina clearly won't be a problem for John Gosden's charge and he may well be good enough to get off the mark at the first time of asking. Dalaklear and Spessartine may be worth noting for future reference.
