He may be under a penalty, but Strong Suit is still the one they have to beat in the Group Two Burj Khalifa Challenge Stakes at Newmarket (2.05), priced around 11/10. The colt has come on in leaps and bounds since having a breathing operation and barely broke a sweat when taking a Group Two at Goodwood last time. Chachamaidee is the one most likely to present the strongest challenge to the selection.


Liechtenstein gave Scotland a fright in Euro 2012 Group I this time last year and it took a 97th minute goal from Stephen McManus to save a lot of blushes. I'd expect Scotland to improve greatly on that performance, however, and it's worth nothing that Liechtenstein have lost nine of their last 11 home internationals. Take the Scots to land the half-time/full-time result at 10/11.
