WASHAAR is already proven at this level having won a Listed event at Ascot last month with the re-opposing Lone Warrior a couple of lengths behind. Today's longer trip should be within his compass and the Hannon colt is taken to follow up. Winning handicappers Chinese Jade and Dancelot have plenty to find on today's terms and the less-exposed Snow Trouble could prove a bigger threat on the back of landing a decent maiden race at Goodwood. Cool Bahamian is another likely to struggle in this grade.
