Jackfinbar is penalised for winning over course and distance in December and will find this tougher. Natch was runner-up to a Godolphin hotpot here a fortnight ago but was still beaten eight lengths and GALACTIC SPIRIT (NAP) is preferred. Marco Botti’s colt made a promising start when second over a mile here and improvement is expected today given he can include the very smart middle-distance winners Gitano Hernando and Battersea among his winning relatives. Stablemate Suprematism and Ness Of Brodgar look best of the rest.
