John Gosden has won four of the last seven renewals of this recognised St Leger trial, including with Masked Marvel (2011) who went onto Classic glory at Doncaster, and his runner FIRST ELEVEN makes plenty of appeal. A half-brother to Group 1 miler Kingman, the son of Frankel has been a slow burner so far in his career but has really come alive on his last couple of starts since stepped up in trip on faster ground. He was unfortunate not to get his head in front in the King George V Handicap at Royal Ascot having been blocked at a crucial stage and the way he hit the line suggested the extra furlong would pose no issue. Loxley was considered good enough for a crack at the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster last season when seventh behind Saxon Warrior and Roaring Lion. He returned with an impressive success at the expense of Raymond Tusk, who acquitted himself well in the Coral-Eclipse behind the aforementioned pair, over 1m2f and should be suited by racing over further. Wells Farhh Go has long been considered a St Leger type but needs to step up on what he has shown so far in two runs this season.

ADVERTISE stepped up massively from his debut win at Newbury to finish runner-up behind the impressive Calyx at Royal Ascot in the Coventry when winning his race against Sergei Prokofiev on the far side. That form is the clear standout in the field and connections have wasted no time in booking Frankie Dettori. Oisin Murphy rode the Showcasing colt at Ascot but rides Legends Of War, for his retainer Qatar Racing, who arrives here with a lofty reputation having won a novice event at Yarmouth on debut in excellent fashion. The only concern to have is whether he is able to build on that effort having clearly known his job as he had been bought for a hefty sum of 900,000gns at the Craven Breeze-up Sale. Van Beethoven benefited from the return to 6f last time at the Curragh when winning the Railway Stakes but has a Group 2 penalty to overcome, while Charming Kid is clearly better than what he showed in the Norfolk at Royal Ascot.

TRIBAL QUEST is unbeaten in two outings in 2018 having built on his promising efforts as a juvenile and his last win in a handicap on the Rowley Mile at the Guineas meeting earmarked him as a sprinter going places. He returns from a 68-day absence but he is more than capable of defying a 7lb rise in the weights. Encrypted improved from his return effort when winning a strong handicap at York last month and he had several of these in behind, including Savalas (second), Staxton (fourth) and Foxtrot Lady (fifth), who all warrant consideration. The Richard Hannon pair of Embour and Buridan cannot be discounted given both are on winning runs at present.

Mirage Dancer was well backed leading up to the Wolferton at Royal Ascot but was never able to land a blow behind Monarchs Glen when finishing fifth. The return to 1m4f is in his favour but he meets BARSANTI again who beat him when the pair met in the Buckhounds Stakes at Ascot over this trip in May. Roger Varian's gelding will find this an easier task than trying to beat Crystal Ocean in the Hardwicke. The Sheikh Hamdan pair, Muntahaa (third) and Laraaib (ninth), both contested the Wolferton where the former bounced back to form and the latter disappointed. The latter is of interest tackling 1m4f for the first time and could go close if returning to his Sandown form behind Poet's Word. Raa Atoll is another fascinating contender as he could easily have gone for the Bahrain Trophy earlier on this card and will be a potent threat getting the weight-for-age allowance at a track that should suit him better than Ascot where he finished fourth in the King Edward VII Stakes.
