Noble Asset led until well inside the final furlong at Goodwood last month and races off the same mark. But he could set the race up for a finisher like WELEASE BWIAN. Stuart Williams' gelding can be a tricky customer but he was beaten less than a length here last time, despite standing still when the stalls opened, and could get his head in front today if Milly Naseb can produce him late. Bahamian Sunrise ended a long losing run at Sandown last month but only beat Go Nani Go, who is 3lb better off, a short-head. Desert Command has tumbled to a decent mark and is threatening a return to form but Taajub still looks too high in the weights. One Big Surprise has never won over a trip this short on Turf.
