8/1

Highly-progressive when winning five on the bounce between 2015/early 2016, including a Group 3 over 6f. Struggled to make the same impact in Group 2's over further - including in Dubai over the winter - but this is more realistic and ground no problem.

Prolific handicap winner who produced a career best effort when just caught on the line in a 6f Group 3 at Newcastle (good to firm) earlier this month. Stiff task when seventh in last week's Group 1 July Cup at Newmarket but couldn't be ruled out, having previously won on good to soft.

3/1

Dual Group race winner over 6f who proved a dreadful Royal Ascot performance all wrong when getting up late to edge out Kachy in a 6f Haydock conditions event earlier this month. The best of these on official ratings, so obvious claims with an easy surface no issue.

Expertly-placed to win 10 sprints from just 37 starts, including a Listed event over 6f at Windsor (good) in May. Couldn't back that up when found wanting in a Group 3 on the AW last time and even his very best may not be good enough.

Didn't need to improve to get back on the scoresheet for the first time since 2015 at Chelmsford three starts back but behind Perfect Pasture at Windsor next time and could only manage eighth when fancied for the Wokingham. Change of headgear and ground no issue, so not ruled out.

9/2

Facile winner of a Listed contest at Doncaster in April but not in the same form at York next time. Fared as well as could be realistically expected when sixth in a Group 1 at Royal Ascot (6f, good to firm) latest and not out of it here, having won on easy ground.

Never really progressed as a juvenile following a smooth debut win but has recently got his act back together, culminating in a Group 3 win on the AW at Newcastle (6f) last time. This a bigger ask but entitled to respect, though remains unproven on an easy surface.

Best effort came when winning a decent handicap over 6f at Goodwood (good) last autumn for William Knight. Returned with a solid effort over 5f here for his new yard but flopped when fancied for a Listed event at Nottingham last time. Has won on soft ground.

8/1

Just held on to win a 6f Listed event here (soft) in May to take his winning tally to four from eight outings. Never able to get competitive in the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot last time and this also looks a big ask, even on suitable ground.

20/1

Far from disgraced in Group company as a juvenile, having won a Goodwood maiden. Yet to really fire as a three-year-old, however, and has plenty to find on the principals, having finished down the field in a Newmarket handicap last time.

Betting

Forecast

Magical Memory (3/1), Tupi (9/2), Raucous (5/1), Intisaab (8/1), Gifted Master (8/1), Visionary (8/1), Eqtiraan (8/1), Koropick (12/1), Windfast (12/1), Perfect Pasture (14/1), Glass Office (14/1), Perfect Angel (20/1), Lady Macapa (20/1)

Verdict

Group 2 winner MAGICAL MEMORY proved his dreadful Royal Ascot performance all wrong when pouncing late to win a conditions event at Haydock last time and it would be no surprise to see him follow up here under Frankie Dettori with the forecast easy surface not an issue. That said, there are dangerous abound with Intissab, Gifted Master and Tupi all boasting high-level form on ground with cut.
