In depth

Verdict

Ancient Trade should get involved on his recent fourth at Newmarket while Kashtan has gone close the last twice over the minimum trip. COSMOPOLITAN GIRL was also placed over 5f last time but had finished ahead of a subsequent winner when runner-up over today's trip at Newmarket before that and gets the vote on that form. Nomadic has yet to figure and Godolphin also run the 150,000gns newcomer Perfectly Fair while Saeedan is related to sprinter Parisian Pyramid among others.
