LAAFY won a race similar to this at Ascot two starts ago and was by no means disgraced when upped to Listed level last time. Back in a handicap, he could regain the winning thread. Any further rainfall won't bother Fishable, who produced a career-best performance when runner-up on soft ground at York two weeks ago. He has a 3lb rise to deal with but should run well, while Cepheus certainly isn't out of it either.

ZAMAANI brings some rock-solid form to the table and proved that he handles cut in the ground when runner-up in the Listed Two Year Old Trophy at Redcar last time. The Night Of Thunder colt looked better than ever that day and could go one better here to notch his first Pattern victory. Irish raider Lipizzaner arrives following a solid placed effort at Group 3 level and he is likely to be in the shake-up again, while impressive Newmarket sales winner Just Frank also demands respect.

Recent placed and win efforts at Redcar and Nottingham respectively show WRENTHORPE to be at the top of his game and, despite a further 5lb rise in the ratings, he looks the one to beat. Came From The Dark's 5f form last month reads well and he can be forgiven a lacklustre performance over 6f at York last time. Mighty Spirit and Ishvara both arrive following solid placed efforts and must enter calculations.

WEMBLEY has proven to be a consistent performer this year and the son of Galileo clearly sets the standard, having hit the crossbar in the Dewhurst a couple of weeks ago. He also filled the runner-up position in the National Stakes prior to that and a reproduction of either of those efforts should be good enough to see him earn his first Group 1 victory today. One Ruler appreciated the step up to a mile when winning the Autumn Stakes last time and that followed a fine effort in a vintage renewal of the Flying Scotsman over 7f here at the St Leger meeting. State Of Rest was not disgraced in the Champagne Stakes last month and he could go well once again, while Cobh is the pick of those at bigger prices.
