This is less than straightforward as Goodwood maiden winner, Martian, has only raced on fast going so far. That also applies to SAIGON CITY, who also steps up in trip as he chases a hat-trick. But the latter's half-sister won in soft ground so a tentative vote goes to Luca Cumani's charge. Hunting Rights will handle the surface but is unreliable and so is course and distance winner Colinca's Lad. Timothy T is unexposed and makes more appeal than Mystery Bet, still beaten seven lengths despite finishing runner-up at Leicester recently.
