Verdict

QURBAAN's recent Graded form is rock-solid and he will prove extremely difficult to beat with his sights lowered. Blacktype battled hard to land a Grade 2 event at Belmont latest, his third win from his last four starts, and he can go close again, while Bricks And Mortar and Projected add further spice to the race.

Verdict

ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN left his debut performance well behind when finishing fast to score over 6f at Belmont and, likely to improve again for this step up in trip, he might be able to complete the double. Takeoff and Cookie Crisp top the list of dangers.
