John Gosden is keen to campaign Without Parole at 10 furlongs this season, so this race would be a likely target.

Without Parole

Last year’s St James’s Palace Stakes winner finished fifth to Almond Eye on the Dubai Turf at Meydan in March.

That was only his second run over a trip further than a mile, the first being when he finished behind stable companion Roaring Lion in the Juddmonte International at York.

“He is in good form – I think he will go for something like the Brigadier Gerard at the end of May,” said Gosden.

“I think it all happened a bit quick for him in Dubai – and I think he will be better over a mile and a quarter.

“He ran well in Dubai, though, and he has come out of that race in great order – which is the main thing.”
