Crystal Deauville failed in a bid for a hat-trick when placed at Goodwood but should be thereabouts again stepping up to 6f. Ghayadh should be sharper for last month’s comeback run at Salisbury and collateral form gives him the beating of Kalagia. Recollect drops down in trip and may do better but the same can be said of AL MUSTASHAR. He’ll need to improve on his latest effort at Lingfield but Saeed bin Suroor has a good strike rate with the few runners he sends here and the Godolphin entry can figure with an apprentice’s allowance further helping his cause.
