A slowly run race did no favours to favourite Premio Loco who, nevertheless, still produced a rather laboured performance following his fine third in the Lockinge and, given that he's run so well at Goodwood in the past, it's unlikely that it can be put down to the track. This was a rare bad performance from the dual Group Two winner and it would be no surprise to see him bounce back in next month's Summer Mile at Ascot which he won last year. FANUNALTER won twice at Listed level last year before running respectably in two starts at Meydan. This was a career best performance but he needs things to drop right for him and may not be so lucky next time although he has now proved himself at this level and should continue to be competitive. Rio De La Plata was having his first run since winning over ten furlongs in November and was giving half a stone away all round. He has tended to improve for his reappearance in each campaign and can be expected to come on from this encouraging return. He was travelling particularly well with two furlongs to run but couldn't get past the game St Moritz whilst Fanunalter flashed past on the inside; he is in a couple of races at Royal Ascot and has run in relatively quick succession in the past - he probably needed a stronger pace at this trip. St Moritz has enjoyed a remarkable season since transferring to David Nicholls and has proved to be reasonably versatile tactically; this was a fine first attempt at this level for the yard and he may be able to pick up an average race in this grade. Nationalism was a big eyecatcher as he flew home late on to finish a never nearer fourth; he only has a maiden and a handicap win off 95 to his name but he was sent off favourite for the Cambridgeshire last season (a race his trainer has won with Pattern race performers in the past). He was gelded after disappointing subsequently and there should be plenty more to come given that this was only his seventh career start. Mac Love has been a grand servant to connections and ran his race but it now seems unlikely that Awzaan will fulfil the rich promise of his juvenile season and will remain difficult to place. Vesuve was weakening when losing his action.
