A couple of these have similar profiles. Justice Frederick won at Gowran before struggling in the Chesham at Ascot on his first start for Paul D’ Arcy while WHITE TOWER was outmatched in the Group 2 Superlative Stakes at Newmarket last month. But the latter had beaten a subsequent winner when making a winning start at Ripon before that and he gets the nod to come out best in this. Contrast and War Of Succession have plenty of improving to do to match the principals while French Silver is facing a tough introduction in this company.
