NATALIE'S JOY was an impressive winner of a maiden at Goodwood and that performance suggested that she could make her mark at this level. The form of Nate The Great's Carlisle victory has been boosted with the third winning since and, being by Nathaniel, the step up to 7f should suit. Arthur Kitt did it well on his introduction at Haydock and his dam won the Queen Mary here back in 2012. San Donato bumped into an exciting prospect at Yarmouth but he should not be discounted, while Beyond Reason and New Winds also merit respect.

Winner of five races from 1m 1f to 1m 4f on good and good to soft ground and on the all-weather. Beaten 6l by Magic Circle when second of 8 at 20-1 on his latest outing in the Group 3 Matchbook VIP Henry II Stakes at Sandown over 2m (good) last month.

St Leger second CRYSTAL OCEAN has returned as good as ever this season, landing two Group Three contests, first at Sandown over an inadequate trip and then impressively at Newbury when comfortably clear of his rivals. The Sea The Stars colt is backed to land his first Group Two prize and atone for his defeat in the King Edward VII Stakes at the meeting last term. Idaho got the better of Barsanti in this by half a length 12 months ago, but Roger Varian's gelding made a successful comeback and could prove to be the main danger to the selection. Cliffs Of Moher steps up in trip after his fourth in Wednesday's Prince Of Wales's Stakes.

QUEEN OF BERMUDA has improved with each start since chasing home Queen Mary third Shades Of Blue on her C&D introduction. Her wins at Thirsk and Windsor were both impressive displays and the fillies' allowance also plays to her advantage here. Moonlight Romance has to be respected having been too strong on turf at Belmont last month for Wesley Ward, while others to consider include the likes of Sabre, second in the National Stakes at Sandown, and Van Beethoven, who placed behind Fairyland at the Curragh last time.
