Andronicus Beau sets the standard after finishing seventh in the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot but a chance can be taken on MAYAAS. The unraced son of Dark Angel cost 425,000gns last year and is out of a mare who won the Queen Mary and Lowther. William Haggas' colt is a half-brother to a pair of Listed winners, too, so merits the utmost respect this afternoon. Line Of Departure and Ubari are entitled to improve on their recent debut efforts, while Cobh is another newcomer to note.

Bungee Jump arrives here on the back of a second-placed finish in a Listed race at Goodwood three weeks ago. That was not the strongest race for the grade but it does suggest the five-year-old is in the form of her life. That said, the vote goes to MAGICAL JOURNEY, who faced a tough task in a novice event against subsequent Royal Ascot winner Art Power on her seasonal return. James Tate's filly hit the crossbar in a Listed race as a two-year-old and a mark of 94 could prove workable. Dark Regard is another to note.

SANDS OF MALI finished down the field in the Diamond Jubilee and has not been at his best for a while now but this is the weakest race that he has contested in a long time. The five-year-old was a beaten favourite in a conditions event at Hamilton last summer but he only found the high-class pair of Brando and Donjuan Triumphant too good on that occasion. A reproduction of that performance should be good enough to win this contest. Snazzy Jazzy is a consistent performer at Group 3/Listed level and could give the selection the most to think about on these terms. Bielsa remains unexposed but it is a slight concern that he has disappointed in his two biggest tests to date, when a beaten favourite in both the Portland and Wokingham.

NUITS ST GEORGES appreciated the drop in class when winning on his first outing of the year at Sandown last month and the five-year-old may well have more to offer this term after proving very consistent throughout last season. Monsieur Lambrays (second) and Theatro (third) both warrant plenty of respect based on their recent encounter at Pontefract, while Gabrial The One and Night Of Glory are others who make some appeal.
