Another tricky maiden where we face a further form drought but with Godolphin's runner in such good form recently we side with their BUZZWORD but only just ahead of Red Badge while the improving Imperial Warrior looks best of the rest. A runner up position over course and distance was the result of an encouraging debut from our pick and while the form is only beginning to work out he'll have more help to get home this time with Frankie Dettori taking over from the yards conditional. Red Badge ran very green on debut where he to found just one too good. He should improve from that initial run and should be close again. Imperial Warrior progressed from his debut when he pressed the leaders to finish in the places last time out and a continuation of that improvement will have him closer this time. Rockabilly Rebel is the only other you can really make a case for after a solid debut but we side with the in-form connections and Buzzword.
