Master The World has the best form in the book with a debut second at Goodwood and, though he went backwards last time, he's still preferred to the likes of Rainbow Rock and Prairie Prize. But one of the late-developing newcomers may prove good enough and TOUCH THE SKY is the speculative choice. Lady Cecil's Sea The Stars colt is a half-brother to St Leger hero Sixties Icon while King's Land is also related to a Group 1 winner in Eastern Anthem. Paul Hanagan has plumped for Mustadaam ahead of Mustadrik and David Probert has abandoned Roskilly in favour of stablemate Chinotto. Love Tangle, Divisional and Dalarosso are others to note.
