QUORTO got off the mark at the first time of asking in a 6f novice contest here last month and is bred to improve for this additional furlong given he's a son of Dubawi and out of a Mount Nelson mare who placed in the Oaks and Irish Oaks. Certain Lad was tapped for toe when third in the Railway Stakes on a foray to Ireland and will appreciate this stiffer test. The pick of the remainder may be John Gosden's Daafr, who confirmed he's on an upward trajectory when striking at Newcastle.

GILGAMESH is a relatively lightly-raced four-year-old and he was unlucky to be drawn on the wrong side when finishing seventh in the Victoria Cup at Ascot in May. He swiftly followed that up with a victory at York and he was then far from disgraced when finding six furlongs too sharp in the Wokingham. Mubtasim finished third in the Jersey last season and both of his efforts so far this campaign have been encouraging. Others to consider in a very competitive contest are Makzeem, Mukalal and Spanish City.

BLUE POINT produced one of the most impressive performances of Royal Ascot week when beating the likes of Battaash and Lady Aurelia in the King's Stand, and with stepping back up from 5f more of a help than a hindrance here, he is hard to oppose. The first and second home in the Commonwealth Cup, Eqtidaar and Sands Of Mali, should both take close order again, with the latter fancied to turn the tables. U S Navy Flag, back sprinting for the first time this season, and John Gosden's progressive Dreamfield add further spice to the contest.
