Verdict

Richard Hughes rides the 100,000 euros yearling Dover The Moon, who is closely related to several useful winners, but the Hannon team also field MUNJALLY and it's Paul Hanagan's mount who gets the vote. He was very green on debut at York but still shaped with promise and improved again to finish third at Newmarket. Diapenko will have learned plenty from his course and distance second behind Downturn and rates a danger while Brownsville was only collared close home at Leicester last time, though his future probably lies in handicaps. Calrissian was pitched in at the deep end in the Chesham Stakes but wasn't disgraced and should be winning soon. He's preferred to the Godolphin newcomer Emirates Galloper, who is likely to need further.
