Wesley Ward has won this race twice in the last six years and Maven will be popular in the betting after scoring at Aqueduct on debut in April, while Mount Fuji made a winning start to his career at Cork last month despite doing plenty wrong in the early stages. Expressionist scored over course and distance on debut after costing connections 300,000gns at the Craven breeze-up sales, but this can go the way of King Power Racing's SUNDAY SOVEREIGN. Impressive on debut when fourth in a hot Naas contest before beating the likes of Arizona at the Curragh a few weeks later, the two-year-old didn't mind soft ground when scoring on his third career start at Tipperary 16 days ago and can put his experience to good use here with no concerns over the trip or ground.

Cape Of Good Hope bids to follow in the hoofprints of his full brothers, Highland Reel and Idaho, in winning at the Royal meeting and he arrives on the back of a solid fourth in the Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly. Fox Chairman's inexperience got the better of him at Chester but he remains with significant potential and the return to a more conventional track is definitely in his favour. Andrew Balding's colt, along with London Gold Cup winner Headman, Heron Stakes runner-up Roseman and the third from that contest, SANGARIUS, represent a strong team for the sire Kingman and it is the latter-named who gets the vote. Sir Michael Stoute has won this contest twice in the last 10 years, most recently with Cannock Chase (2014), and his comeback at Sandown was a solid performance when shaping as though he would benefit from the outing. The step up to 1m2f and the booking of Frankie Dettori could both eke out further improvement. Others to consider include King Ottokar, who travelled powerfully before not staying in the Chester Vase over an extended 1m4f, and Kick On, who will appreciate softer underfoot conditions to what he encountered in France earlier in the month.

QUEEN POWER was denied by a short-head over 1m here on her seasonal bow but she was making up plenty of ground late on and it was no surprise to see her improve for the step up to 1m2f when landing a Listed contest at Newbury last time (with Star Catcher back in third third). Sir Michael Stoute's charge was again putting in her best work in the finish last time and could progress again now granted this stiffer test. Oaks third Fleeting could be tough to keep out of the frame for a trainer who has won three of the last five runnings of this contest, while the pick of the John Gosden quartet may be Fanny Logan, who finished an outpaced third in the Cheshire Oaks and could appreciate this extra yardage.
