Andrew Balding has two of the six runners in this contest with Coltrane and Nate The Great. The latter had a mixed season last year, winning three races at Newcastle and Newmarket (twice), with last success coming in Listed Rose Bowl Stakes over two miles.
Finished last on the two occasions he raced in this sort of company last season at Royal Ascot and Goodwood but drops to 1m 7f here and he has managed to do ok at this sort of trip in the past.
Failed to make his mark at this level last term but finished fifth 67 days ago at King Abdulaziz before heading here. More is required in this company and others boast better form.
