Verdict

Navajo Chief won last year's renewal and can effectively race off a lower mark with an apprentice's claim taken into account. Sandagiyr is smart at his best but Frankie prefers Invisible Man and the latter is fancied to reverse earlier running with Royal Hunt Cup winner Prince Of Johanne. Trade Storm's latest second at Ascot gives him strong claims while Anderiego has won his last two starts over C&D and has to come into the reckoning. Recent Kempton winner Switzerland makes most appeal of the Johnston runners but a chance is taken on the lightly-raced KAHRUMAN. He can take another step forward after a respectable sixth in the Britannia behind stablemate Fast Or Free and gets the speculative vote.
