MEGALLAN makes the most appeal on paper with John Gosden's Kingman colt out of a Listed-winning dam, who was a half-sister to the great Golden Horn. Owner Hamdan Al Maktoum has a strong hand with Ajrad and Laneqash, who both commanded six-figure fees at the sales, while Escobedo is a 70,000 guineas recruit for the Richard Hannon team, who are always a factor in this sphere. Godophin's Motataabeq is worthy of a market check along with French Conquest and Mark Johnston's Outback Boy.

Line Of Departure built on a near miss at Newbury when getting off the mark on his first outing in this sphere at Yarmouth last time. He should be thereabouts once again despite a 5lb rise, but preference goes to JADWAL, who took a huge step forward when scoring on his second start at Newmarket. He bounced off the quick ground on that occasion and there is no reason to doubt he could follow that impressive success up here. Et Tu Brute was second in that contest and is respected, while Ripon winner Ataser also warrants consideration, despite this appearing tougher.

Completed a double for new stable before good runs in the Wokingham at the Royal meeting and at Newmarket. However, latest Newbury effort suggested that the handicapper may now be in charge.

Course-and-distance winner EQUITATION has a fine record at this venue and is backed to go one better than his second over 5f here last month off just a 1lb higher mark. Theotherside made it two wins from her last three when getting the better of Will To Win (second) at Windsor, but was hit with a 7lb rise for that which makes life tougher, and gives Simon & Ed Walker's gelding the chance to reverse the finishing order. Highland Dress has remained competitive in some hot events since scoring at Newmarket in June, while Chil Chil caught the eye when second on his reappearance at Windsor and could take advantage of the same rating.

Back on the scoreboard in first-time cheekpieces at York (7.9f) last month. 5 lb rise fair enough and should be in the mix if the headgear again has the desired effect.

Has slipped to a potentially very handy turf mark, but he appears to be more of a force on the AW nowadays.

Combination of first-time cheekpieces and tactical change (held up) worked the oracle when resuming winning ways at Doncaster (1m) recently. Now 4 lb higher in a stronger race, but couldn't rule out.

Jalaad merits respect having won at York a few weeks ago but he is 5lb higher and in a better contest today. With that in mind, preference is for SHELIR, who caught the eye when fifth in the Buckingham Palace over 7f here at the Royal meeting. When last seen the son of Dark Angel met trouble in running in the International Stakes also over 7f here and he looks to be primed for a big run, with the step up in trip likely to suit. Game Player has been off the track for over a year now but he is more than capable of making the frame if ready to go today.
