An extremely competitive renewal of this Listed race and there is likely to be a blistering early pace with A Momentofmadness, Alpha Delphini, El Astronaute and Take Cover in the field. With that in mind, the preference is for STONE OF DESTINY, who arrives here having finished fourth in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot last time out. The drop in trip is a slight concern but a fast pace could set it up for a finisher and the fact that he stays 6f should help. Mr Lupton and Muthmir are others who should be suited by how this race is likely to be run.

  • Gold = Horse has a 50% or better win record

DAL HARRAILD is the class act in this contest after being deemed good enough to run in a Group 2 at Meydan last time out, and can defy a 105-day absence to score here for Yorkshire-born trainer William Haggas. The five-year-old has C&D-winning form and can account for Dylan Mouth, who ran better at Newmarket last time but still not quite at his optimum, and Scotland, who outran lofty odds in the Ascot Gold Cup three weeks ago.

BLESS HIM could be ready to peak on his third run of the year and wasn't disgraced in the Royal Hunt Cup last time, finishing third in the far side group. Baraweez returned to winning ways at Chester and has won off a 1lb higher mark in Ireland in the past. Course winner Get Knotted posted another gallant effort in defeat latest and should similarly go close, while Wadilsafa commands the utmost respect now dropped in both trip and grade.

Minor-event winner at Wetherby in May and creditable placed efforts next 2 starts. Needs to bounce back from disappointing effort last time, though.

Successful at 1m and 1m 2f on good to soft and yielding ground. Beaten 7l behind Band of Outlaws at 5-1co-fav when eighth of 10 on his latest outing at Curragh over 1m (good to firm) earlier this month.

Resumed winning ways at Musselburgh last month, but couldn't back it up at Ayr subsequently and makes limited appeal.

A wide-open renewal of this hugely competitive handicap sees the progressive Dash Of Spice arrive in search of his third big handicap success in a row. Having won at Epsom on Derby day and Royal Ascot in the Duke Of Edinburgh, when coping with a 9lb rise in the handicap, he is 4lb well in and hugely respected once again, but THUNDERING BLUE could have his measure dropping back down in trip. David Menuisier's grey was down the field at Ascot behind Dash Of Spice but his C&D success at the Dante meeting was hugely impressive and, if the ground is similarly as fast as it was that day, a bold bid is expected from this hold-up performer. Kynren has never raced over further than a mile but has threatened to improve for a step up to 1m2f and the likely strong pace is guaranteed to suit. Others to consider include Appeared, who was fourth on his return at Royal Ascot, and Titus, who will be more suited by the step back up in trip than running over a mile at the Curragh last time.
