Verdict

Godolphin have won the last two of these and Jeremy Noseda the previous two. The former are doubly represented with For Posterity, who has looked very moderate in his two runs to date, and ZURBRIGGEN, who made his debut in what looked a very strong maiden here a year ago and hasn't been seen since. Getting one ready is no problem for his trainer and he's taken to get on the winning trail. Noseda is represented by The Best Doctor, another with a long absence to come after a reasonable debut on soft ground here in October. Nickels And Dimes looked a certain future winner when runner-up over 1m1f at Wolverhampton and didn't appear to stay when tried over 1m4f at Windsor.
