An intriguing renewal sees MISHRIFF (NAP) and Adayar renew acquaintance after the latter came out best in the King George over 1m4f here in July. Charlie Appleby’s charge subsequently ran a big race in the Arc given the underfoot conditions but the former re-opposes on better terms having subsequently demolished the opposition over today’s trip in the Juddmonte International at York. Last year’s winner Addeybb would prefer more rain but stablemate Dubai Honour is making rapid strides having won a Group 2 at Longchamp last time and is also preferred to a third Haggas runner in Al Aasy. French Derby runner-up Sealiway should give a good account and makes more appeal than the Ballydoyle colt Bolshoi Ballet while Mac Swiney was no match for the selection at York in August.
