Verdict

Intellogent was only beaten a short-head at Newmarket on his first run for Jane Chapple-Hyam but has a lot to find at the weights here. Sir Busker hasn’t won in almost two years but goes well here and has been running well in Dubai. New Mandate won a Group 2 as a juvenile but has had his problems since so is probably best watched. VALIANT PRINCE won a couple of handicaps at Meydan earlier this year and there may be more to come from Charlie Appleby’s four-year-old, who can complete the four-timer.
