I'm very sweet on the chances of Fashion Queen in the opener at York on Wednesday. She won a Listed race at the track last season and was back to form when second at Deauville last time. This is her first start in a handicap and I think she'll run a huge race from a mark of 98.

Poet's Word can justify favouritism in the Juddmonte International. He brings rock-solid Group One form to the table following wins in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes and King George at Ascot. He sets the benchmark for all he's in against a star-studded field including the likes of Coral-Eclipse first and second Roaring Lion and Saxon Warrior.

The Sky Bet Great Voltigeur is often a significant pointer for the William Hill St Leger and I take Wells Farhh Go to underline his Classic claims. He was back to his best when winning the Bahrain Trophy last time and there's more to come from him.

Finally, I like Watan in the Acomb Stakes. He looked such an exciting prospect when winning on debut at Goodwood and I can't wait to see him in action again.
