    Verdict

    Swindy found the step up in class beyond him at Ascot last time, but he went close at Epsom before that and has been placed at this track before. He looks a leading contender but slight preference is for Polytrack winner LIBRITISH, who ran well over further at Doncaster recently and will appreciate the return to today's trip. Persian Herald is another with claims on earlier form as he was beaten less than length at Goodwood in June, while Reem Star and Ugo are others to consider in a tough opener.
