Verdict

Junderstand ran green at Kempton in October but still shaped with promise and the extra furlong will be in her favour. Zain City ran his best race so far at Leicester 10 days ago. Mick Channon’s colt has De Sousa doing the steering and will be fancied to open his account at the fourth time of asking but could be up against a very smart newcomer in the shape of MIDNIGHT MEETING. The Godolphin colt is a full brother to Chantilly Listed winner Crystal River and will be expected to pay his way this year. Ajddarr was easy to back at Leicester earlier this month but was staying on when hampered in the closing stages and the race was run in a faster time than the division contested by Zain City.
