Without Parole looks the safest bet in the Qatar Sussex Stakes on the second day of Glorious Goodwood.

The John Gosden-trained colt has an unblemished record from four career outings, progressing nicely through the ranks this season after returning with a visually impressive success at Yarmouth in April.

Crucially, not only was that six-length demolition of Ostilio easy on the eye, it turned out to be solid form, too, with the runner-up going to win the Britannia Handicap at Royal Ascot.

A natural step up in class came in the Heron Stakes at Sandown, where he got the job done without being spectacular, something connections were keen to put down to the ground being slower than ideal.

Fast conditions at Royal Ascot suited him down to the ground in the St James's Palace Stakes, though, where he looked the real deal in beating solid yardstick Gustav Klimt.

As long as the rain stays away, he should be tough to beat - although Expert Eye threatens to be a fly in the ointment, so some caution is probably advised.

Sir Michael Stoute's runner turned the Vintage Stakes into a procession at this meeting 12 months ago, and while things have not entirely gone to plan since, he came right back to his best in the Jersey Stakes at the Royal meeting.

It is intriguing his trainer opted to supplement him for this assignment rather than take the easier option of the Lennox Stakes on the opening afternoon.

There is no reason to think Soldier's Call will not put up a bold bid to supplement his win at the Royal meeting when he lines up for the Markel Insurance Molecomb Stakes.

Archie Watson's youngster showed plenty of dash in winning the Windsor Castle Stakes, breaking well to lead the group on the near side and keeping on strongly from a furlong and a half out, when he was racing slightly on his own.

Van Beethoven was one of those that flew home on the far side, adding credence to the theory it was a good renewal when he came out to win the Group Two Railway Stakes at the Curragh.

Watson was quick to nominate this race as the target and it is safe to presume he will be cherry ripe.

It would be no surprise at all were Kloud Gate come out on top in the Matchbook Betting Podcast Handicap, after solid efforts in the Ascot Stakes and, most recently, in the inaugural running of the JLT Cup at Newbury.

Savaanah arrives on a four-timer and it is quite possible she still has more to offer, making her the one to be with in the EBF Breeders' Series Fillies' Handicap.

Slowmotion looks sure to go well in a wide-open renewal of thetote.com Galway Plate.

Joseph O'Brien's mare was an excellent third behind Balko Des Flos in the 250,000 euro feature last season and returns to compete off the same mark.

A decent comeback in a good hurdle race at Tipperary at the start of the month should have her cherry-ripe for her second attempt and she looks good value at double-figure odds.
