Verdict

SUMMERGHAND has to be given the utmost respect because he arrives following two victories in his last three starts. British raiders have won the last four renewals and this progressive four-year-old can add to that record. Last year's first and second Ice Age and Al Qahwa could both make the frame once again, while Marie Of Lyon is another who comes across the Irish Sea with solid form claims. Urban Beat, Blairmayne, Focus Of Attention and Smash Williams appear to be the pick of the home team.

Verdict

URBAN BEAT is a 3-y-o sprinter going places and he could be up to completing the 4-timer. Glenamoy Lad, Miss Power and Medicine Jack are a trio of others to keep a close eye on.

Verdict

Jessica Harrington holds a strong hand with her two course-and-distance winners I'm So Fancy and Beautiful Morning, and the latter had the best of the Aidan O'Brien trio, Broadway, held when landing a Group Three here last time. However, the proven quality in the line-up comes in the form of EZIYRA, who has only seen her colours lowered when coming up against the very best fillies, and Dermot Weld's four-year-old has to be the one to beat.

Verdict

EZIYRA's excellent third to Sea of Class in the Yorkshire Oaks at York last month is clearly the best piece of form on offer, and she will prove hard to beat with a similar kind of performance. I'm So Fancy should continue to give a good account, while Beautiful Morning may prove best of the remainder.

Verdict

HAVANA GREY posted his best effort of the year when beating Caspian Prince and Mabs Cross (subsequent Nunthorpe second) here in the Sapphire Stakes in July and although he was behind the last-named at York last time, this race doesn't appear quite as deep and he's expected to take a lead from recent Beverley Bullet winner Take Cover before pouncing late on. Hit The Bid impressed at the Dubai Carnival and is considered the main danger with his Tipperary pipe-opener under his belt.

Verdict

A winner of the Sapphire Stakes here in July, HAVANA GREY is deserving of his fifth placed finish in last month's Nunthorpe marking up, isolated towards the far side and likely to have gone close had he raced with the main pack. He can come out on top. Hit The Bid should be spot on for his return and is feared, as is admirable veteran Take Cover.

One win from 3 runs this year. 2¾ lengths third of 9 to Skitter Scatter in Debutante Stakes at this C&D (good to soft, 2/1) 21 days ago. Remains open to improvement.

Verdict

SKITTER SCATTER hasn't looked back since stepping up to 7f on her last couple of starts, both of them in Group company, and was a very impressive winner of the Debutante Stakes here with several of today's rivals in behind. That performance sets her up nicely for a crack at the highest level and she can give her trainer his first Group 1 success. The UK contenders, Main Edition and Beyond Reason, both come into this in excellent form with the pair winning at Group level on their latest starts. The former has the assistance of Frankie Dettori in the saddle, while the latter has shown a liking for ease in the ground so any rain will benefit her. Just Wonderful returned to winning form here over a mile at the start of the month and looks the number one chance for Aidan O'Brien.

Verdict

SKITTER SCATTER defends an unbeaten record over 7f, and her decisive win in the Debutante Stakes here 3 weeks ago (ahead of several of these in the process) marks her down as the one to beat. Main Edition brings British formlines into the equation and she may emerge as the chief threat.

Thrice-raced maiden. 7/1, 1¾ lengths third of 7 to Christmas in listed race at Tipperary (7.4f, good) 37 days ago, met some trouble. Easy to look elsewhere.

Verdict

Anthony Van Dyck was only half a length in front of Christmas when winning the Futurity over C&D three weeks ago, although he appeared to have more in hand than the margin suggested. That said, the son of Galileo may have to take another step forward to beat QUORTO, who created a big impression when winning the Superlative Stakes by nearly four lengths. Charlie Appleby's colt should be capable of making his mark at this level based on that evidence.

Verdict

The form of QUORTO's easy win in the Superlative Stakes at Newmarket in July is backed up by the clock and is taken to get the better of Aidan O'Brien's quartet, headed by Anthony Van Dyck.

Verdict

Latrobe followed up his Irish Derby success with a flat performance in the Juddmonte last time so is banking on this stiffer test unlocking immediate improvement. It might be worth taking him on with fellow three-year-old FLAG OF HONOUR, who backed up his C&D victory in the Curragh Cup with a battling victory over Twilight Payment in the Irish St Leger Trial last time. Ebor runner-up Weekender may emerge as the pick of the older horses and could be well placed under Frankie Dettori if things become tactical in this small field.

Verdict

WEEKENDER produced a very smart performance when runner-up under top weight in the Ebor at York 3 weeks ago and a reproduction of that form puts him firmly in the mix at this level. Flag of Honour was much improved to win his last 2 starts, including the trial for this over C&D, and is next best ahead of Irish Derby winner Latrobe.
