This 2 year old son of Kingman justified support when successful over C&D on debut, winning as a 6/4 favourite that day; he then built on that effort when runner-up under a 3lb penalty at Yarmouth last month.

Major contender now handicapping with further progress expected, the jockey and trainer also won this race last year with Modern Games.

Went off favourite on two of his three runs so far and failed to progress further when third in a maiden at Ffos Las last time out.

However, he is bred for longer trips so could do better now handicapping and upped to 7f after previously running at 5f and 6f. Has an each way squeak.

Won the German Guineas last season. Respectable 4 ½ lengths fourth of 7 to Saffron Beach in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot but latest third at that track suggests she has not quite progressed as a 4
year old.

Dropped back down to 7f and can run on a variety of different ground, so this front-running sort could still figure in what looks a very open Group 3 contest. Highly respected

Ran poorly last time out considering he was sent off a well-backed favourite (6/4) after late market support, but failed to meet expectations when fifth of 14 at Chelmsford.

Stepping up to a mile for the first time as previous three runs have come over 7f, so this should be in his favour on what is his handicap debut. Can get back on track.

This 4 year old son of Dubawi made it 3-3 when winning a 1m Redcar handicap last October. Has then been a beaten favourite in 2 runs since reappearance in the spring (including the Lincoln), but could resume his
progression having not been seen for over 100 days.

Tongue tied for the first time which could make a difference and holds an entry in this year’s Cambridgeshire Stakes.

Showed a lot of promise as a 3 year old and could well bounce back here.

Sir Michael Stoute

A very useful handicapper who has dotted up respectable efforts in competitive events on his first 4 starts this season.

Looks a progressive type as he shaped as if still in good form when in the middle of the pack at Glorious Goodwood 6 weeks ago.

This Sea The Stars gelding could well be in the mix if running to the levels he showed last term; this race looks easier on paper and the trip will not be an issue.

The Queen's horse has a big chance.
