Danehill Kodiac winning the Shergar Cup Classic
CONTRAST was an impressive winner last time out here at Haydock. He showed plenty of improvement from his first start and looks like a nice horse in the making. This is a tougher test with some proven individuals but I think he can run a nice race.
TUPI ran a lot better at Salisbury last time up to the mile, settling nicely in behind runners. This looks like a much better race on paper but if he relaxes as well as he did last time I could see him running a place again.
ZEBULON is a big son of Zebedee who got tired last time at Newbury. He has had plenty of time since that run and has been working better this time so I would expect to be much closer having had the run under his belt.
DANEHILL KODIAC was impressive the other day here at Ascot and can go in again. He's working really well at home and seems to have really hit form. This is a tougher test but I would be disappointed if he didn't run close.
PARIS PROTOCOL has been running well in some competitive handicaps. He has had a little time between runs which has freshened him up nicely and if he handles the going should run another competitive race.
FLYING NORTH ran very well at Newmarket last week in a strong maiden and this looks an ideal opportunity to break her duck. She has pulled up well from that last run so I am happy to see her run again here.
ROCKSHINE is having her first start here. She is a daughter of Fastnet Rock and out of the same mare as Light Up Our World. I have taken my time with her and I think she is ready now to have her debut. She will improve on what ever she does.
