Smart on his day and encouraging effort when runner-up back from a long layoff at Chelmsford. Respectable fourth in a first-time visor at the same course next time but this is a tougher assignment.

Looked potentially high class when winning first 2 starts as a 2-y-o. Things haven't gone to plan since but shaped well back from a break when runner-up over 9f in a Meydan Group 3 in January.

Successful twice at 7f on good to firm and good ground, but last win was over two years ago. Beaten 2 1/4l by Benbatl when second of 15 at 7-1 on his latest outing in the Group 3 Singspiel Stakes Group 3 - Turf at Meydan over 1m 1f in January.

Runner-up in the German 2000 Guineas in May. Misfired at Royal Ascot next time and while recent odds-on Ayr victory was a confidence-booster, this may prove beyond him. Cheekpieces applied.

Successful at 7f and 1m 2f on good to firm and good to soft ground. Won on his latest outing when 1-7fav at Ayr over 1m 2f (good to firm) earlier this month, beating Universal Gleam by 5l. He is wearing cheekpieces for the first time.

Desert Encounter comes out top on official figures and warrants plenty of respect on his first start out of Group company in 14 months, but EMOTIONLESS rates the one to beat representing a red-hot Charlie Appleby stable. The Shamardal gelding is a Group 2-winning performer and chased home the top-class Benbatl on his only start so far this year at Meydan. That form is rock solid with the winner subsequently landing the Dubai Turf and he looks sure to go close on his UK return. First Sitting disappointed in France last time but won a Goodwood Listed event two starts ago.

Almoghared is the most interesting player in the line-up, switched to handicap company after finishing fourth behind subsequent Group 1 winner Kew Gardens in the Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot, but Willie Mullins' STRATUM gets the nod. This high-class dual purpose performer arrives on the back of a career-best performance in the Ascot Stakes, where he ran a blinder to finish third despite being caught wide throughout. Dropping back from 2m4f shouldn't be a problem and the first-time hood could eke out further improvement, so a big run looks on the cards. Coeur de Lion, sixth in the Ascot Stakes, and Quloob, who wears first-time cheekpieces, are others to note.

A chance is taken on EQUILATERAL to bounce back from a disappointing 12th-placed finish in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot. The Equiano colt impressed when bolting up in a novice contest two starts ago, he is the least exposed runner in the field and represents the stable which has won two of the last three renewals. Bacchus foiled a massive gamble on Dreamfield when winning the Wokingham Handicap four weeks ago and, entitled to improve for that first run since October, he must enter calculations. Hey Jonesy and Invincible Army, fifth and ninth respectively in the Commonwealth Cup, make up the shortlist.
