Verdict

Godolphin have won three of the last five renewals but Lingfield second Hawker is only making slow progress and may have to give best here to PROXIMATE. Though a little disappointing when touched off at Hamilton last time, Sir Michael Stoute's gelding still has the best form in this and is less exposed than Thorpe, who has been racing over further lately. Lady Guinevere lacks a recent run but there should be more to come from Mark Johnston's pair Summerfree and Perivale while Mutashabek is an interesting debutant, though he's already been gelded.
