MURRAY RIVER impressed when opening his account at Lingfield on his seasonal debut last time and John Gosden's Australia gelding could have plenty more to come here. It may be best ignoring Qarasu's Newmarket effort last month and he could have a part to play if repeating the best of his novice heroics, while Caravan Of Hope was denied by only a short head last time out and could enjoy the switch to the handicap ranks.

Mark Johnston has a strong hand here with the unbeaten Thunderous and Frankel's Storm, who thrived on heavy ground when opening her account at Carlisle and comes into calculations if there is any further easing in the ground. Richard Hannon won this last year and his Ascot second Sun Power, who is proven in Listed company, is the pick of his pair. However, it may be worth siding with JUAN ELCANO, who nearly made it two from two in the Group 2 Superlative Stakes last time and could be the class act in this field.

MORANDO has just fallen short of the mark in Group 1 and Group 2 contests of late, but the Ormonde Stakes winner, who enjoys cut in the ground, could get back to his best at this level at a course he has run well at in the past. Sextant is looking for a hat-trick and has been a leading performer in handicaps this season, while Sameem is another who has been tasting success of late, securing a Listed victory at Hamilton when last sighted.

Providing the ground doesn't get too deep, this could be the perfect opportunity for RIPP ORF to get back on track and the popular five-year-old is 1lb lower than when staying on for fourth in a hot Ascot handicap last time. George William has returned in good order this term and has the chance to better his track and trip second last month, while Graphite Storm was on the scoresheet at Newmarket last time and a 3lb rise doesn't rule out a follow up. The front-running Love Dreams is another to note.

Sir Dancealot accounted for Hey Gaman in the Lennox at Goodwood last month, but that form isn't sure to be confirmed at this track and it wouldn't be a surprise if it was actually reversed. Donjuan Triumphant and Librisa Breeze would both appreciate any further rainfall, but this can go the way of John Quinn's SAFE VOYAGE. Third behind Hey Gaman and recent French Group 1 winner Romanised at the Curragh four weeks ago, he remains on the upgrade and could prove difficult to beat.
