Verdict

Space Traveller finished runner-up to 2000 Guineas sixth Shine So Bright in the European Free Handicap but was receiving 4lb. Khaadem should be capable of better this year having won two of his three starts last season. Moyassar won well under a big weight at Newmarket and warrants this step up in grade but the filly Red Impression is having a first run on Turf having only finished third in a Listed race at Chelmsford earlier this month. Alan King has a strong team for the Flat this year and DUNKERRON boasted decent form in Group 2 races last season. He was fourth in the July Stakes and second in the Vintage Stakes at Goodwood and a repeat of either of those runs here would suffice.
