Ajmany went close over track and trip last time when finding Saeed Bin Suroor's charge First Flight just too good. The latter's trainer should have a good line on the form and runs CLON BRULEE in this. He was having his first start since February when a decent third at Epsom and is preferred to the other Godolphin runner Urban Dance. Nicholascopernicus steps down in trip while Tinghir, a winner over a mile, moves in the opposite direction but last month's Newbury third Enobled could prove a bigger threat than both.
