Verdict

Making History is far from being one of Godolphin's leading juvenile lights but should be more effective moving into nursery company. However, there is no particular reason to anticipate a major improvement over this extra furlong and he will be relying upon his class to defy topweight. In contrast, MISS MATTERHORN proved well suited to a seventh furlong when making practically all at Lingfield and could be hard to pass if adopting similar forcing tactics. Fantom Force looks fairly treated and could also can play a prominent role with northern challengers Danny Ocean and International Lion also expected to do better now moving into handicaps for strong yards.
