EMBOUR won in a higher grade at Kempton two weeks ago, ahead of Naadirr, and is only 2lb higher. He appears equally proficient on Turf so a quick follow-up may be on the cards if the rains stay away. Beyond Equal wasn’t far behind the Hannon inmate at Windsor last month and is a pound better off so rates a danger. Watchable is probably due a rest but is still running well and Jawwaal was just beaten in a blanket finish here in March so goes on the short-list. Muscika was soon beaten at Redcar 12 days ago but will strip fitter here.
