The four year old last year showed serious ability when winning back to back races at Newmarket over 12 and 13 furlongs, but went to Glorious Goodwood after that and flopped.

Many might have given up on the Sea The Stars colt after that, but on seasonal debut he stepped up for the Group Three Surprise Stakes over course and distance and ran out a very easy 4 1/2 lengths winner.

Sent into the Group Three Al Rayyan Stakes over 1m4f at Newbury last time out, he could not have been an easy winner of the race, cruising to the front and demolishing a field on the bridle that included St Leger winner Logician and Dante Stakes winner Thunderous.

It was arguably one of the performances of the season and he tried to reproduce that last time out in the Group One Coronation Cup but was unfortunately chinned on the line by the gritty Pyledriver.

Looking to get back to winning ways he was last seen at Newmarket in the Princess Of Wales Stakes and again he finished narrow second to the determined Sir Ron Priestley.

He has been given a break now and dropping back into a Group Three makes him difficult to beat.

Days: 42

The 400,000gns son of Zoffany will be praying for the rain to fall on Saturday with his best efforts coming with cut in the ground.

Having been smart on both his starts as a juvenile, he made his seasonal debut this term at Chester over 10.5f in the Listed Dee Stakes where he ran in behind some very smart horses, maybe needing the run first time out.

He came on a bunch for that run at Royal Ascot to land the Golden Gates Handicap over 1m2f, seeing off some decent runners in style.

Back on quick ground last time out at the July meeting he was a head second to Dubai Honour in another smart event and the winner has since gone on to land a Group Two in France.

Foxes Tales also franked the form last time out when winning well on soft ground at Haydock over 10.5f in the Group Three Rose Of Lancaster Stakes and he looks the big danger to the favourite.

Sir Michael Stoute

Days: 21

The five year old gelding for Sir Michael Stoute hit new heights this season when taking Listed honours for the first time.

Previously mixing it in handicap company, he returned to the course this season in Listed company but shaped like he’d come on for his first outing of the season.

He did just that when easily winning a Listed race at Windsor over a mile in mid May beating Stormy Atlantic.

We next saw Solid Stone in the Wolferton Stakes at Royal Ascot last month. He was sent off joint favourite but had to settle for third, being unable to shoulder his 3lbs penalty to Patrick Sarsfield and Juan Elcano.

He was then sent to Newmarket for the Listed Steventon Stakes over 1m2f and was a good third behind the smart Real World and Derab, with the former since franking the form.

Stepping up into Group Three company at Salisbury he was another fair fourth behind Dante second Megallan and last time out in an easier race at Windsor.

This demands more but he is consistent.

Days: 28

William Haggas has an insurance policy in the race with Ilaraab and beforethis season he has been very much a progressive type and has now won the last six of his last eight races.

The son of Wooton Bassett before this season looked very much like a group horse in waiting, despite doing his winning in handicap races, but when stepping up this term has flopped.

Two starts ago when put into the Group Two Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot he only beat two home, but the form of the race has worked out massively.

Primed for the Ebor, he once again was below par not handling the step up in trip and he needs a revival in this event.

Days: 93

The big outsider of the field is the £210,000 purchase Ad Infinitum who looks to have it all to do only having three starts to date.

The well bred daughter of Golden Horn, was first seen as a juvenile when finishing fourth in a Maiden Stakes over 1m3f at Kempton.

Saved for this season the three year old returned at Goodwood in May winning a nice Listed event and then last time out at Ascot was seen at Royal Ascot in the Group Two Ribblesdale Stakes only beating two home.

The yard seem to think a lot of this horse but looks to have it all to do.

However, she is still unexposed and could put up a big performance.
