Verdict

SELF EMPLOYED sets the standard and it's much higher than anything today's opposition have managed so far. He had no chance in a Group 3 at Haydock last time but should be opening his account in this company. The danger will most likely be the Godolphin newcomer Volcanic Wind as Saeed Bin Suroor has a decent strike rate at this track, though Dylan George is related to prolific winner Demolition and is another debutant to note. The remainder with experience have shown no worthwhile form with Spanish Legacy perhaps coming out best.
