PYTHAGORAS justified strong market confidence to easily score on his nursery debut at Ripon earlier this month and is fancied to continue his progress for Richard Fahey. The Zoffany colt shaped there like one who would have more to offer in the future and could have too much for Longlai, who relished the step up in distance when successful at Salisbury earlier this month. Recovery Run is yet to run a bad race in four starts and completes the shortlist.

Fox Chairman represents the Andrew Balding stable that won this race in 2012, 2015 and 2019 and his recent form at Listed and Group level gives him a solid chance. Lord Glitters is closely matched with him on their York Stakes clash and the likeable grey should run his usual honest race, while Old Borough Cup winner Euchen Glen deserves a mention but this trip is shorter than ideal for him. However, ADDEYBB is 8lb and upwards ahead of these rivals on official figures and the dual Group 1 scorer is hard to oppose.

KING'S LYNN was beaten at odds-on when second at Doncaster on his first outing for 11 months but the horse that beat him, Starman, went on to score in Listed company at York earlier this month and a mark of 94 appears workable for Andrew Balding's colt. Last year's winner Golden Apollo has been acquitting himself well this season and another bold bid isn't out of the question, while others to note include Atalanta's Boy, a winner at Goodwood on his latest start, and Arbalet, who wears cheekpieces for the first time and has a decent record when ridden by Josephine Gordon.
