LADY KERMIT made a big impression when winning both of her previous starts on the all-weather in decisive fashion and she sets the standard in this very competitive contest. The likes of Companion, Fleeting Princess, Lady Fanditha and Silver Start all have to be respected having caught the eye when making winning debuts in recent weeks. Mighty Spirit and Separate are both maidens but they should not be underestimated this afternoon.

Natalie's Joy won at this level at Newbury over 6f last July and has to be respected along with Magnetic Charm and Clerisy.

STRADIVARIUS took this by three lengths from Desert Skyline 12 months ago to kick start a run of five straight victories in an unbeaten season, landing the stayers' bonus in the process, and John Gosden's five-year-old is the one to beat as he looks to repeat last year's exploits. Southern France was third in the 2018 St Leger and could build on his recent Group 3 reappearance to provide the main opposition, with Ispolini respected following his fine winter in Dubai.
