YOSHIDA was beaten just over a length into fifth in the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot when last sighted and he will prove a tough nut to crack on his US return. Heart To Heart was narrowly denied a Grade 1 hat-trick latest and rates the biggest threat, ahead of last-start Woodbine scorer Delta Prince.

Verdict

STORM RUNNER has struggled in Graded company the last twice, but he drops in class as well as trip, and could regain the winning thread. Spikes Shirl went close in a similar event at Churchill latest and he could be in the firing line again, while, like the selection, Mask will also appreciate dropping in both in distance and grade.

Verdict

INSPECTOR LYNLEY would have got up in another couple of strides in Grade 2 company at Churchill and he could prove tough to beat in this lesser event. Right on his tail in third that day was Mr Cub and he should give another good account, while Conquest Panthera and Projected are others to note.

Verdict

SUPER MAMA has a lengthy absence to overcome, but she boasts some solid form and will appreciate this drop in class. I Like Your Style placed in a similar event at Belmont last time and is likely to be on the premises again, while Crater Rim and Molly's Nighthawk are other respected contenders.
