In depth


Godolphin run two again as seems the norm with Silvestre De Sousa keeping the ride on Brave Boy, third over track and trip on his debut. He's likely to start favourite and is preferred to stablemate Music Theory. This extra furlong should be no problem for Le Laitier as he was staying on over the stiff 5f at Beverley last time but a chance is taken on IVY TRUMP. The form of her debut fifth at Doncaster is working out and Mike Appleby's filly gets the vote with an advisory note to keep an eye on the newcomer Exceed Areeda.
