Mark Johnston has won five of the last six runnings of this contest, including with Communique 12 months ago, and fires three darts at the board this year, the pick of which may be THE TRADER. Fifth in a warm handicap over this trip at Newbury two starts ago, the son of Mastercraftsman was then runner-up over the same distance at Epsom. With solid 1m2f form thus already in the book, he gets the vote ahead of stablemates Oasis Prince and Dark Vision, both of whom are stepping up from a mile but still merit consideration. Almashriq ran on well for second over 1m at Chelmsford last time and has place possibilities, along with Silvestre De Sousa's mount Good Birthday, who was third in front of the selection at Newbury before the Johnston inmate was subsequently gelded.

DAAHYEH made a winning debut over 6f here on the Rowley Mile in May and not only did she go on to win the Albany Stakes next time out (with Celtic Beauty behind in second) to confirm herself to be on a sharp upward curve, the second from her HQ run, Raffle Prize, also franked the form in no uncertain terms two days previously when landing the Queen Mary. Final Song was third behind the last-named at Royal Ascot but promises to be suited by this additional furlong, and could also finish on the premises.

CALIBURN swerved the Old Newton Cup last week and arrives here fresh from his impressive victory at Pontefract, where he made smooth headway to power clear over 1m4f and looked in a different league to his rivals. This step up in trip could unlock further improvement from Andrew Balding's charge, who bids to defy a 5lb rise. Ben Vrackie rattled the crossbar in the Duke Of Edinburgh at Royal Ascot, despite missing the break, and is considered the principal threat, though Simon Crisford's Outbox, a Listed second in France recently, is interesting on his handicap debut. The return to 1m6f may well spark a revival from Godolphin representative Secret Advisor, who has only had one outing since winning the 2017 Melrose.
