Sands Of Mali bids to repeat his pillar to post success on soft ground 12 months ago, but he enjoyed the run of the race on that occasion and may struggle to dominate again with Sprint Cup scorer Hello Youmzain drawn in close proximity and likely to keep the pace honest. Commonwealth Cup winner ADVERTISE could be ideally placed to challenge from his low draw, though his ability to handle the conditions does have to be taken on trust. Wokingham scorer Cape Byron shouldn't have any problems powering through the mud, nor will 2017 winner Librisa Breeze or The Tin Man, who won this in 2016 and handled testing conditions fine when landing last year's Sprint Cup from Brando. Although drawn away from the principals, Irish raider Make A Challenge is another exciting prospect to consider as he is improving at a rate of knots for Denis Hogan. He regularly travels like a weapon of mass destruction through testing terrain, including when slamming 106-rated mudlark Downforce by over four lengths in a Listed race at the Curragh last weekend.

Reigning champion STRADIVARIUS has dominated the domestic staying division over the last two years and his season has chartered a similar route to 2018, with victories registered in the Yorkshire Cup, Gold Cup, Goodwood Cup and Lonsdale Cup. This year connections have opted to also take in the Doncaster Cup, which he won cosily from Cleonte even though he had to briefly make his own running in a small field of just five. Providing that extra engagement hasn't left him over the top for this assignment on slow ground, he should take all the beating. Withhold bolted up from the front in Listed company at Newmarket last month and seems over the issues which have restricted him to only three starts since flopping in last year's Geelong Cup. Switching this race to the inner course, for better ground, has boosted his chances, though he still needs to raise his game a notch to trouble the top-class selection. Royal Line has been raced twice since landing last year's November Handicap on soft, winning the September Stakes most recently, and is perhaps the most interesting alternative to the favourite given his unexposed profile over extreme distances. He's out of a Lammtarra mare and is a half-brother to 2m winner Hidden Gold, so makes some appeal on breeding.

John Gosden appears to hold all the aces and may be able to prevent Aidan O'Brien from landing this contest for the third year in succession. His Anapurna landed the Oaks and left behind her Vermeille disappointment when scooping another Group 1 from Delphinia at Longchamp last time. Frankie Dettori gave her a cracker from the front on that occasion, though he instead elects to ride Ribblesdale heroine STAR CATCHER here. The daughter of Sea The Stars confirmed her Ascot superiority over Fleeting, who appears the leading Ballydoyle hope this afternoon, in the Irish Oaks (with Pink Dogwood also in arrears) and always looked in command when striking again at Longchamp over Arc trials weekend.

Winless since last year's Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot, looking like one to treat with caution on occasion. Will benefit from the drop back in trip after a breathing operation.

Winner of five races from 6f to 1m on ground varying from good to firm to good to soft and on the all-weather. Third of 5 behind Desert Encounter beaten 6l at 12-1 on his latest outing in the Group 3 Sky Sports Racing Winter Hill Stakes at Windsor over 1m 2f (good to firm) in August.
