Interesting. Rizg is comparatively unexposed in here. He's just had the three runs but he has ran to a half decent level.

He wasn't far behind Tiber Flow and Ehraz at all last time out, and that was a good run on his seasonal reappearance.

Hard to weigh up but there's definitely ability there.

Cadamosto has been rather frustrating to follow. He is winless since his debut success last April, he's ran creditably enough, but just seems to find other horses too good. He definitely has work on to reach the level on offer here.

Unlikely.

Beat Cattura last time out in a French G3 over 5.5f. he did stay on all the way to the line and she has ran to a solid level there.

Will there be a question mark with the ground though, she's likely to encounter very quick ground here, and she may have a preference for considerable ease.

He has been running well, without stamping his marker as a genuine group horse. He won on seasonal reappearance at Nottingham, then failed to back it up in listed company at York.

He went off favourite that day and he did disappoint, plenty of work to do now against high class G1 horses.

Flaming Rib keeps running consistently, and to a good level at that. He was second to El Caballo last time out in the Sandy Lane which is a key piece of form for this.

He's well drawn and he could be an attractive each way price with extra places. E/W chance.

Clearly a horse of high class. He was third last time out in the Sandy Lane, which again, looks to be a key piece of form. His running style requires some luck in running but he should get a solid pace to aim at.

He is tricky, but he has ability.

Somewhat profilic son of Havana Gold, he's won 6/7, and he took the Sandy Lane last time out in good style. He certainly knows how to win and he demonstrated his will to win last time out too.

He stays 7f so this track should suit, he has a better chance than most.

Go Bears Go was only just touched off by Perfect Power in the Norfolk at this meeting last year. He's progressed again since and he's running to a high level.

He was only fourth in the Sandy Lane last time out but his chance went when stumbling at the start so it was actually a mighty effort to get so close. One of the more likely winners.

She ran to a high level last year, but we've not actually seen her since last September. She is a multiple group winner and she likes the track, but it has to be a negative that she's not ran so far this season.

Tough ask on her reappearance.

Her second in a listed race doesn't read particularly well in the context of this G1 contest, and she probably should have won too.

Flotus is clearly a filly of real ability, she has looked difficult at times though, and she is up against it against genuine G1 horses.

Won well on seasonal reappearance, winning over just shy of 6F at Naas. He is exposed though, but his effort last time out suggests he may have improved from 2-3.

He has plenty of speed and he proved he gets the trip. Interesting.

Greenham winner over 7f, then tried in the Guineas (1m) and he appeared not to stay. Sprinting looks his bag as he's an exceptionally fast horse, and this track clearly suits.

He has a leading chance on form and he's very highly regarded. Probably the one to beat.

Slipstream is an interesting runner for America. He looks to stay 7f in America and their horses are often blessed with a shade more speed than ours too.

The mix of stamina and speed in this race is paramount, and he looks to have both. He's a winner at a good level, and he must have an each way chance.

He has really dissapointed thus far this season. He has only managed to beat one home on each outing. He was down the field in the Sandy Lane last time out, and there are no obvious sings that suggest he can turn that form around with a few of these.

Looks out of his depth here. Sam Maximus is one from seven so far. That said, he did run well last time behind Tiber Flow and Ehraz, he had a few of these behind him too.

He will need to improve again though, and he is exposed now.

Seemingly campaigned towards a Guineas tilt, connections soon learned that she just has too much speed. She won last time out over 5.5f at Cork, which is a step back in the right direction.

All her best form is at 6f and while she has to bounce back, this trip gives her a chance at doing so.

Ehraz, another frustrating sort, looks to finally be going the right way. Connections have been testing him out with regards his trip, and I think they've found the key to him now. He ran very well behind Tiber Flow last time out and that's a good level of form.

He was only beaten a short head and he's likely to improve again. Good chance.

Good second to Go Bears Go with Ehraz back in third on his seasonal reappearance. He failed to build on that last time out though, and he finished well beaten behind a few of these in the Sandy Lane. He will need to bounce back and reverse the form with a few now.

She is yet to run as a 3yo. She showed a good level of form from just two runs last year though. She is bred to appreciate this kind of test, as her half brother was third in this race, then won the following year's Diamond Jubilee stakes.

Tough to assess on account of no run as a 3yo. Unlikely.

Tiber Flow is 4/5, and was only beaten a short head by El Caballo. He won well last time out, showing real guts to win. He is clearly a top class horse, and he's well worth a shot at G1 level.

He also has the beating of a good deal of these on form. Chance.
