Verdict

European raiders have won four of the six renewals with Aidan O'Brien training the last two winners. Giovanni Boldini may have only won a Listed contest at Dundalk last time but did so in good style, while stablemate Wilshire Boulevard finished a creditable fourth in a Group 1 at Longchamp and is not out of this. Outstrip and Shamshon have a bit of improving to do to match the Ballydoyle duo with the latter unlucky to be drawn out wide. Naming his horse in tribute to the late, great trainer Bobby Frankel, didn't turn out too badly for Khalid Abdullah and leading American owner Ken Ramsey has followed suit. BOBBY'S KITTEN landed a Grade 3 on the Turf at Belmont in convincing fashion and Chad Brown's colt will take some pegging back in this if allowed to set his own pace at the head of affairs, He's preferred to the fast-finishing Poker Player, who beat Bashart and Bon Accord at Keeneland recently, while Aotearoa had Got Shades back in third when scoring over track and trip earlier this month.
