Handicap: No

Going:

Khamry and Li Mei both represent powerful connections and are bred to have ability, while Al Galayel did improve from his first to second start. Preference, however, is for the Hugo Palmer-trained FRANCIS XAVIER. He shaped with lots of promise on his debut at Lingfield despite doing plenty wrong, slow to break before racing much too keenly, and there is no telling how much he will have learnt from that experience.
