In depth

Verdict

CHEVALLIER has the form in the book with a close-up fourth at Newbury and gets the vote on that running. Saying that, he finished a length behind Emirates Airline at Ascot earlier which brings the Godolphin colt into the equation. Subversive is a likely improver for last year's winning yard while Its Gonna Be Me, a half-brother to dual winner Helmsley Flyer, makes more appeal than Gun Case and Qatar Road of the newcomers.
