Signed off truncated 2017 campaign with an impressive victory at Kempton (1½m). Disappointing when returning from 2 years off in 16.2f Northumberland Plate, but worth another chance back in trip here.

He has won three times from 1m 2f to 1m 4f on soft ground and on the all-weather, but last win was over two years ago. Pulled up when 5-1 at Newcastle over 2m won by Who Dares Wins in June on his latest outing.

Aside from a below-par display on penultimate start, he's been in top form this year and duly bounced back when third in Old Newton Cup at Haydock last time. However, 4 lb rise for that may halt him.

Chester novice winner last year and made it 2-4 in handicaps with a decisive display at Windsor (1¼m) 11 days ago. This is tougher, but one to consider under a penalty nonetheless.

He has won three times from 1m to 1m 2f on good to firm and good ground. Won on his latest outing when 11-10fav at Windsor over 1m 2f (good to firm) earlier this month, beating Mordred by 2 3/4l. Carries a 5lb penalty today for that success. Has also won at Newmarket this season.

PERSIAN MOON is the only three-year-old in the field and, despite not having won since September last year, Mark Johnston's colt makes plenty of appeal against his elders. The son of Makfi has run some excellent races in defeat, most notably when fourth in the King George V Handicap at Royal Ascot, and, getting the weight-for-age allowance, he could prove a big threat from the front end. Corelli, Jazeel and Epaulement are all progressive individuals who are worth placing on the shortlist.

STRADIVARIUS arrives here having won his last eight starts and the top-class five-year-old is very hard to oppose in his bid for back-to-back victories in this contest. Dee Ex Bee has chased home the selection in his last couple of starts and the same fate could await today, despite now being receipt of 3lb from Stradivarius. Falcon Eight merits a crack at this level based on his Listed win last month, although he will have to take another step forward to trouble the aforementioned pair.

Excuses when well held in Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot and decisive winner of minor events either side of that. Likely capable of better still, but this demands a big step forward.

Threat sets a clear standard having finished second in both the Coventry at Royal Ascot and the Richmond at Glorious Goodwood. However, the way he shaped on the latter occasion suggested a step up in trip would be beneficial to him, so the vote goes to REPARTEE. An impressive winner on debut over C&D at the Dante meeting, he can be forgiven his Newbury run on softer ground and his handler Kevin Ryan has won this contest three times since 2012. Abstemious and Dubai Station complete the shortlist.
