Verdict

Sigurwana was disqualified after leading all the way at Wolverhampton and couldn't quite cope when attempting to give Cape Joy 7lb over 1m2f at Folkestone. This should prove ideal and she won't go down without a fight but A'JUBA may prove just too strong. The Godolphin entry, a brother to Group 3 winner Alexendros, started favourite on his debut at Kempton but needed the experience and was then only just touched off by his well-backed stablemate Mawhub on fast ground at Newmarket. He has plenty of scope and can go one better with the once-raced Discay a contender for a place
