New Godolphin trainer Charlie Appleby has wasted no time since being granted his license and his Music Theory will be fancied to be another winner for the boys in blue. Clear of the rest when runner-up on debut at Nottingham, the Acclamation gelding will make a bold bid to go one better but TOOFI was very green on debut at Ascot and possibly has more scope for improvement. Roger Varian's colt gets the nod ahead of Showpiece, already placed at Newbury and over an extra furlong here. Newcomers to consider include Greeb and stablemate Sahra Al Khadra but they will have to be useful to overcome their lack of experience.
