Winner of last season's Stewards' Cup and proved he's still capable of smart form when scoring twice on AW during the spring. Struggled back on turf since, though, and others make more appeal.

HOLMESWOOD has dropped 1lb lower than when landing a competitive sprint at York last season and hinted his winning return was approaching again when flashing home for third at the same venue during the Ebor meeting last month. Encrypted appeared to win a shade cosily over this trip at Chelmsford last time and is worthy of shortlist inclusion, as are Great St Wilfrid runner-up Dakota Gold, consistent three-year-old Roundhay Park and Windsor Sprint Series Final winner Udontdodou. A new headgear combination could assist Open Wide, who also has Andrea Atzeni booked.

Sir Michael Stoute representative MUSTASHRY was beaten just half a length by Lord Glitters in the Strensall Stakes three weeks ago and is expected to remain competitive now stepped up to Group 2 company. D'bai will appreciate the step back up to 7f and is the one expected to put up most resistance. Big runs could be on the cards from C&D winner Oh This Is Us and Breton Rock, who landed this contest two years ago.

TOO DARN HOT confirmed the promise that he displayed when making a winning debut at Sandown by taking the Group 3 Solario Stakes at the same venue a few weeks later. On that occasion he was four lengths ahead of the Chesham winner Arthur Kitt, while he beat Confiding with more ease than Dark Vision did in the Vintage. Based on that performance the son of Dubawi is very hard to oppose this afternoon. The aforementioned Dark Vision is the main threat but needs to take another step forward to beat the selection. The form of Phoenix Of Spain's Acomb victory has not worked out that well and that has to be a concern. Bye Bye Hong Kong was an impressive winner of a novice race at Windsor last time out and he remains open to further improvement.
