15:30 Newbury

Al Suhail signed off last season with a six length demolition of his rivals in a Listed contest at Newmarket and returned this season with an excellent third in the Group 1 Jebel Hatta in Meydan in March. Another solid run when third in the Group 2 Summer Mile last month confirms he remains in excellent form however all of these races have come over a mile of further so I would have to be concerned about this drop back in trip.

Motakhayyel finished three lengths behind Danyah and although has some decent form over this trip I didn't see enough last time out to suggest he could reverse that form, and even with Danyah now a non runner preference is for the William Haggas runner Sacred who won on only prior run over this trip, has an excellent record when fresh and won't mind the step back down in grade having contested the 1000 Guineas when last seen.
