Fattsota makes his reappearance but it would be no surprise to see David O'Meara's charge go well as he beat Tha'ir with a bit in hand at Epsom last August. But Tha'ir's stablemate WINDHOEK is probably the one to beat if reproducing his third to French Navy in the Group 3 Diomed Stakes at Epsom. He'd only been beaten half-a-length by the same horse in this grade at Goodwood earlier. Educate won last year's Cambridgeshire and wintered in Dubai. This will be his first run since March but he shouldn't be dismissed out of hand whereas Amralah, Flemish School and Truth Or Dare have plenty to find at the weights.
