    Verdict

    We have a top class line up for the feature event of the afternoon The Juddmonte International. The French challenger Bago will be worth a mint of he can land this before going on to victory in the Breeders Cup, but on this occasion we prefer the enigmatic Kalaman, with Sulanami put forward as another major threat. Sir Michael Stoute's colt has always threatened to win a Group one event. According to the stable he has always been a big baby, but has now matured and the penny certainly dropped last time when he easily beat Gateman at Ayr. His previous efforts in such races as the Eclipse and St James's Palace Stakes have been quite outstanding and if, as expected, he improves on those runs, he will be difficult to beat here. Bago scared away the opposition in the Grand Prix De Paris last time and comfortably accounted for three rivals. He is obviously to class and merits every respect. Sulamani has been running well on unsuitable ground all season and if the forecasted rain does arrive we should see a much improved performance. If Royal Ascot winner Azamour gets this extra two furlongs he is another that will be in the shake up, however we don't think we have seen the best of Kalaman and this one is gets the decision.
