Verdict

The two Godolphin-owned runners stand out by a country mile on official figures and, if running anywhere near their ratings, should have this race between them. Sahara Kingdom looked potentially smart when winning at Lingfield as a juvenile and posted a decent effort in defeat at Southwell on his belated return when attempting to concede weight to two of his three rivals. He's entitled to come on for that but marginal preference is for the former Australian performer CAYMANS who has form on cut in the ground in his native country and was Group 1 placed in Australia in 2009; his fitness has to be taken on trust but shouldn't be a problem in this day and age although he still has to prove that he retains his ability.
