There is a strong argument that RIFFAA WONDER didn't give a true account at Goodwood on debut having stumbled out of the stalls and then was much too keen as the race unfolded. The 100,000gns buy still did well to finish fifth and could build on that now dropped back to the minimum trip. Tantastic, who was deemed good enough to run in the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot, was a promising fourth at Musselburgh last time, while Anatiya and Tamaska are both interesting on debut.

The experience of MECCA'S HOT STEPS could prove to be vital here and she makes plenty of appeal at this level having been knocking on the door when handicapping of late. Spring Bloom was a little disappointing when sent off favourite last time, but his form before that is rock solid and he could get involved. Al Mansoura shaped nicely when third on debut at Hamilton and is respected, with Northern Charm showing plenty of promise in a pair of outings at Catterick.

INDIAN SOUNDS made it back-to-back Bath victories when last seen and the thriving four-year-old can continue his fine run of form off an 8lb higher mark. Stablemate Tanasoq is a course-and-distance winner and has shaped better than the bare form figures would suggest recently. Fellow track-and-trip winner Duke Of Firenze went close at Musselburgh recently and is only 2lb higher now, while Watchable makes a quick return to the track having been denied by a nose at Ripon earlier this week.

MUSCIKA certainly wasn't winning out of turn at York two weeks ago and a 4lb rise looks fair. Three of his six career victories have been recorded at this venue and he makes slightly more appeal than Abate, who won over 5f here in June and was even more impressive when successful at York last time. Swissterious chased home the latter 15 days ago and can't be ruled out, while neither can recent Doncaster scorer Intrinsic Bond.
