Speedily-bred colt who knew his job when making a winning debut at Pontefract. Just as good when second under a penalty to a well-bred newcomer at Newcastle since but this asks for a bit more.

Foaled 8 Feb. Dam won three times at 7f. A winner at 5f on good ground. Beaten 3/4l by Toussarok when second of 6 at 11-4 on his latest outing at Newcastle over 6f last month.

Charlie Appleby saddled Pinatubo to win this race 12 months ago and although Modern News isn't that calibre, he can better his effort in the Chesham dropped in both trip and class. Lingfield scorer Mutazawwed could well get his own way out in front and will be dangerous if so, but TWAASOL looks the one to beat for Owen Burrows and Martin Harley. There was a lot to like about his debut success at Windsor and he looks a Group performer in the making.

SAFE VOYAGE lost little in defeat when going down by a neck to the 2019 winner of this, Space Blues, at Haydock on his reappearance and that should set him up nicely for a tilt at this prize. John Quinn's consistent seven-year-old is a specialist at this distance and any rain would strengthen his case. Oh This Is Us has placed in the Group 3 Diomed Stakes (that is normally on this card) in both 2017 and 2019 and is respected, while Shine So Bright can leave his Diamond Jubilee disappointment in the past back up at 7f. Jack's Point has done well since the restart and could surprise now he's returned to his optimum trip.

Ironclad is lightly raced and worth a market check on his seasonal return, as is Caradoc, though with the benefit of a recent run to his name, easy Newmarket winner DESERT ICON rates the one to beat. William Haggas' four-year-old is potentially ahead of the handicapper now turned out under a penalty and is taken to register a swift double. Tinandali shaped encouragingly on his first start for David O'Meara and also makes plenty of appeal.

Highly progressive sort who was sticking to the task well without laying down a serious threat to Frankly Darling when runner-up in the Ribblesdale. Another step forward could put her in the mix.

Love was a very impressive winner of the 1000 Guineas last month and she has to be given the utmost respect once again. That said, the form was slightly let down by the placed horses at Royal Ascot and, while she is a likely stayer, she does have to prove herself over this trip. With that in mind, preference is for FRANKLY DARLING, who won the Ribblesdale impressively a couple of weeks ago. She will have to settle better than she did in the early stages of that contest, but she is still lightly raced and may have more to offer. Ennistymon has a similar profile to the selection, although she was beaten by Frankly Darling at Ascot, and it would be no surprise to see her in the mix at the finish.
