This seemingly impossible ‘consolation’ puzzle will provide some sort of guide to the effect of the draw in the same sponsors’ Stewards’ Cup later on. From stall 17 Ryan Moore may well be able to follow the pace on Richard Fahey’s Tatlisu, whose form over the past few weeks reads very well. Stewards’ Cup favourite Muthmir was probably a little rusty when Tatlisu beat him at Newcastle but that was still a very good effort, as was the narrow defeat by Blaine in a £20,000 race at Hamilton. There is rather a lot of five-furlong form to hand but solid efforts over six count for more. Fahey also runs El Viento, who has slipped to a handy mark, with Stepping Out and the penalised Extrasolar also taking the eye.
