A MOMENTOFMADNESS arrives 4lb lower in the ratings than when winning this contest 12 months ago and he is fancied to repeat the feat. The six-year-old was disappointing earlier in the season but he appeared to be coming back to form when a close sixth in a valuable race at York's Ebor meeting. Muthmir, who plundered this prize way back in 2014, is on an eyecatching mark and he did run very well in the Dash at Epsom on Derby Day. The unbeaten Bielsa is an exciting prospect but could be vulnerable in a race of this nature. Others to consider are Copper Knight, Dazzling Dan, Gunmetal and Arecibo.

Not the strongest renewal of this contest, but SHINE SO BRIGHT will be hard to beat if reproducing the form that saw him claim the scalp of Laurens in the City Of York last month. The son of Oasis Dream does have to carry a 3lb penalty for that success but he doesn't appear to be taking on anything of Laurens' calibre. Sir Dancealot was back in fifth on the Knavesmire but is a player based on his second Lennox Stakes triumph in July. The shortlist is completed by Turjomaan and Never No More.

THREAT returned to winning ways in the Gimcrack over 6f at York and the way he stayed on that day suggests that he should relish this step up in trip. The consistent colt clearly brings the best form to the table and he is hard to oppose. Juan Elcano finished second in the Superlative Stakes when last seen but that was not the strongest of Group 2 contests and he will have to improve to win this. Royal Crusade made a successful debut at Newmarket and merits respect, and Fort Myers should be thereabouts too.
