Places (1-2-3-4) from Barrier Draw

The three-year olds could have a big say in this assessment class despite having it all to do at the weights in terms of official ratings. APPROACH CONTROL is undoubtedly still developing his mark and he stayed on smartly for 3rd when trying this distance at a similar level, albeit in lesser company last time out. He meets the older rivals who may still not be at their peak fitness and this progressive son of Potala Palace will relish racing on this galloping circuit. His fellow three-year old ZILLZAAL has his compulsory post maiden run in this plate contest and the Tarry inmate thrashed his rivals over this c & d second time out but obviously takes a huge leap in class here. He also appears progressive though and this event will paint a clearer picture as to his true potential. The best weighted entrant is last season's Derby winner HERO'S HONOUR who undoubtedly needed his fair comeback run last month, the form of which was boosted when the runner-up Dhabyaan won subsequently. He will be fitter and would be a deserved short-priced favourite though he certainly has some quirks.
