Verdict

Newbury Handicap winner Muwaary is preferred to End of Line and Lat Hawill of the UK raiders but all three have plenty to find in this company. Giovanni Boldini has stronger claims for Aidan O'Brien as he drops back in trip after a good effort in the UAE Derby at Meydan, but Karakontie looks the one who'll be a warm order. He won the Group 1 Jean-Luc Lagardere over 7f at last year's Arc meeting and finished well ahead of Galiway and Prestige Vendome when runner-up in his prep-race. However, DECATHLETE finished less than a length behind today's likely favourite in a Group 3 here in September and with a smooth comeback win over track and trip under his belt, Andre Fabre's Godolphin colt colt may well reverse running today. Group 2 winner Kiram also looks a danger and is preferred to stablemate Salai and Listed winner Baby Foot.
