Ayrad is likely to strip fitter for his recent Sandown comeback while Star Storm is a big price simply because he has to concede a penalty.
It appears significant that Godolphin persevere with Wolfcatcher given his history and he could develop into a decent staying prospect.
The fourth and fifth have won since and John Gosden showed in the Dante that he doesn’t mind blowing a handicap mark with a horse he regards as pattern class. Taneen is one to watch in the market on his return.
He didn’t look to be in top form when hanging his chance away behind the mighty Solow in the QEII in the autumn, but goes well fresh and Gerard Mosse has won two of his three starts aboard the four-year-old. The selection also appears well drawn towards the middle of the track.
GALLIPOLI (Best price 9-1) looked like the run would do him good at Doncaster in a race that’s working out well and is another to consider. He appeared that he was ridden with an eye to the future that day and should strip fitter back on his favoured fast surface.
