SOUND AND SILENCE has had a highly productive two-year-old campaign and arguably produced a career best effort on his latest start in a Group 3 contest at Maisons-Laffitte. Charlie Appleby has enjoyed a fantastic spell with his juveniles throughout 2017 and this looks another opportunity to continue their consistent form. Abel Handy finished runner-up behind the selection at York's Ebor meeting in a Listed event and has to enter calculations, along with Battle Of Jericho, who could well improve for a drop back in trip. Ripon maiden winner Mokaatil is another to note.

Gavota was an eye-catcher despite losing her unbeaten record over C&D in the Rockfel when third behind Juliet Capulet having looked uneasy on the undulations of the track. Better ground and the experience gained last time could easily both prove the deciding factors between victory and defeat. Dark Rose Angel was just denied in the final strides by Laurens in the May Hill at Doncaster and the booking of Frankie Dettori looks a positive to her chances, but she will need to be on her A game to stop I CAN FLY. Aidan O'Brien's runners tend to improve plenty for their debut runs and the daughter of Fastnet Rock won impressively at Dundalk first time out a fortnight ago. Others at bigger prices to consider include Listed winner Anna Nerium and Altyn Orda, who was beaten by a subsequent Listed winner in a C&D maiden last time.

It can be argued that LIMATO has not been at his very best this year but he has still placed in two Group 1 sprints. He was only beaten by half-a-length in the Lennox Stakes last time and will be tough to beat if the ground stays good or better. Massaat returned from a lengthy break to land the Hungerford at Newbury and he was not disgraced behind Ribchester in the Prix du Moulin last month. Dabyah is unbeaten over 7f but does have to prove herself against the boys, while Cougar Mountain is not a prolific winner but holds each-way claims.
