A small but select field has only three head to post, including 5-time winner Mostahdaf for the Gosden team who look to continue their fantastic form.

Their Frankel colt was in fantastic form in his three-year-old term last season, winning 5 out of his 6 races.

Including two Listed Contests at Sandown last May and September respectively, before going on to land a Group 3 contest at Newmarket last October, beating Bedouin’s Story by just under 2 lengths.

He is the highest rated runner in this race and certainly has some good form to back up in behind, making him the one to beat in this, He will appreciate the good conditions and this sort of trip.

He looks to be a horse that goes well fresh so he could make it a winning start to his four-year-old campaign.

5-time winner last season including a Group 3 contest at Newmarket, won 2 listed contests over course and distance, but does have to give the other two runners 3lb’s in this.

Certainly, looks a class act who is still improving nicely, certainly the one to beat in this three-runner field.

Age: 5
Weight: 9-0
OR: 112
Days: 216

The outsider of the field but is certainly not without a chance in this, only rated 2lb’s lower than the favourite who has to give Juan Elcano 3lb’s, which is a big ask for the favourite considering it will be a very tactical affair.

He is the far more experienced horse in the race so is slightly more exposed, but again like the rest of the field was in good form last season, winning a Listed contest at Ascot last June, with that being only the second win of his career in 12 runs.

He has only won at Listed level so far which might not be enough against these two Group level performers. Looking back at his form he doesn’t tend to go well fresh so it might be best to side with the top two in the market.

Listed winner last season but doesn’t look to have the form in the book of the other two runners, slightly more exposed but only a few ratings lower than these, could go well in this.

Another horse who was in top form last season when winning 3 races out of 7 runs, winning at Ascot before going on to justify favouritism at Haydock in the Group 3 Rose Of Lancaster Stakes by just under a length.

He ended last season in the Championship Mile on Champions Day at Ascot where he was well beaten, with the step down in class in this contest he could very much serve it up to the favourite, with him receiving 3lb’s off the Gosden runner.

He has some good form to boot and does look to go well fresh, with him being another prospect who could improve again in his four-year-old campaign. Looking back at his form it looks as if he will slightly appreciate the slightly softer conditions but does have winning form on good ground.

Has some decent form lasts season, winning three times including a Group 3 at Haydock in August 2021, looks as if the softer conditions will suit this horse a bit more but he has winning form on better ground, gets 3lb's off the favourite so that might be the turning point in this contest, could be the one to upset the favourite in this fascinating 3 runner contest.
