In depth

Verdict

Salah, still a maiden after a dozen starts, has mainly raced in better company but a wide draw tempers enthusiasm and CONSTITUTIONAFFAIR (NAP) looks the one to be on. Simon Callaghan's three-year-old has only had three runs, finishing runner-up to Speakerofthehouse earlier this month, and has more scope than most of these. My Journey was back in third that day and looks held but Mongol Altai is a potential improver after just one run when looking in need of experience.
