Only a couple of these arrive in decent form. That includes NINJAGO (NAP), who was beaten a length at Goodwood by the progressive Intrinsic with Arnold Lane, Rex Imperator and Clear Spring all finishing down the field. The Hannon colt gets the nod to land this ahead of Goldream, a winner at Ascot's Shergar Cup meeting over 5f earlier in the month. Complicate has been well beaten of late albeit in better company than this while Secret Asset has little chance on today's terms.
