Saaheq, Royal Birth and Outrage all look to translate winning form on the all-weather to Turf. The former is possibly the most interesting of that trio but is carrying a small penalty. REWAAYAT was more than three lengths ahead of Han Solo Berger when runner-up at Newmarket just over two weeks ago and it’s difficult to see the latter overturning that form on only 3lb better terms. The top weight wouldn’t want significant rain but should be hard to beat today given optimum conditions. Diligent Lady and Rose Hip could go well at bigger odds.
