The two that finished ahead of MESHAKEL at Haydock ran at Royal Ascot last week. Mark Johnston’s colt should recoup losses against only three rivals in this, though Internationaldream already looked ready for an extra furlong at Newcastle. Summa Peto is preferred to A Boy Named Ivy of the two newcomers.
