Jim Crowley has seemingly opted to ride Moyassar and he warrants plenty of respect following a comfortable handicap victory at Newmarket, but preference is for the other Hamdan Al Maktoum runner, KHAADEM. The Dark Angel colt improved in each of his three starts as a juvenile, signing off with a cosy conditions stakes victory at Doncaster, and he could land this before aiming high at Royal Ascot next month (holds an entry in the Commonwealth Cup). Red Impression was narrowly beaten on her seasonal reappearance in this company at Chelmsford and adds further spice to the race switching to turf.

CRYSTAL OCEAN was a six-length winner of this contest last year and similar is expected 12 months on. There appears to be no negatives concerning Sir Michael Stoute's charge - he goes on any ground, clearly handles the track and looked as well as ever when making a winning reappearance in the Gordon Richards Stakes at Sandown last month. Barring accidents, he will notch another victory, possibly leaving Laraaib and Raymond Tusk, who placed in the John Porter Stakes and Sagaro Stakes respectively when last sighted, to scrap it out for minor honours.

SOLID STONE seems a typical Sir Michael Stoute improver, having looked much better in victory in a Newmarket handicap 32 days ago than when narrowly seeing off the reopposing Forest Of Dean in novice stakes company at the back end of last season. A 6lb rise is fair and he looks sure to be thereabouts at the finish. The aforementioned Forest Of Dean impressed at Doncaster latest and he warrants plenty of respect off 8lb higher, while Headman could leave his conditions stakes effort over C&D well behind now switched to handicap company and faced with faster ground conditions. Sinjaari and Good Birthday add further spice to the race.
