Verdict

PATIENCE ALEXANDER was only third in the Albany Stakes at Ascot when starting joint favourite but is unbeaten over this shorter trip, landing a Listed race at York in May when beating the smart Tiggy Wiggy. She can give 14lb to Squats, who ran much too freely over 6f at Ascot last time but does seem to need that extra furlong and is still climbing the weights. Fuwairt is a decent sort but up 5lb for his Lingfield win and Sandown scorer Profitable and the exposed Low Cut Affair are racing from out of the handicap.
