5/2
Surprise winner of a Listed race at Royal Ascot and won twice since at pattern level, landing a Group 3 at Maisons-Laffitte last time. Carries a penalty but sets a solid standard and may not be done improving yet for a yard in fine form.

Won two of his four starts and runner-up behind Sound And Silence in a Listed race at York when last seen in a game front-running effort. Winner has franked that form since and he ought to be thereabouts again if he takes another step forward.

Didn't need to improve to win a Leopardstown maiden in July and produced a respectable effort in defeat in a Dundalk Listed race last week. More needed dropped in trip here but will appreciate the drying ground and may come on for the run on the AW.

Fine fourth in a Listed race at Royal Ascot (behind Sound And Silence and Abel Handy) but couldn't justify odds-on favouritism at Wolverhampton next time. Settled better and duly won a Ripon maiden as 2/5fav last time but plenty more needed here.

Shock 25/1 winner at Chepstow on his sixth start and followed up at Sandown next time but seemingly found out when tried in Group 2 company last time and this unlikely to be much easier.

Not won since debut at Yarmouth but highly-tried and placed behind a smart sort twice at pattern level. Not as good last time in a Listed race at York won by Sound And Silence and tough ask to reverse the form with that rival who has improved since.

Just won once in nine runs with that effort coming in a Class 3 Handicap at York. Ran well in Sound And Silence's Listed win at that venue when a 66/1 shot but didn't build on that in handicap company last time and has a bit to prove at this level.

Has won twice and placed at Listed level but has struggled on both attempts in Group class. Drop back in trip probably in her favour but may want some rain to be seen at her best.

Has been hit and miss throughout the season and didn't build on a handicap win at Goodwood when well beaten at Doncaster last time in a valuable sales race. Possibly drawn on the wrong side but still has a fair bit to find in a deeper contest here.

Impressive when landing a Listed race in France two starts back and not disgraced in a Doncaster Group 2 last time, despite the ground probably coming up softer than ideal. Travels well into her races and may do better if the rain stays away.

Yet to run a bad race and improved from her run at Down Royal to place in Listed company at Newbury. Signs her progress may be leveling off when tried at this level last time but not without place claims with Dettori riding for the first time.

Won a Cork maiden back in May and won on her return to action at Naas earlier this month. Seemingly well out of her depth here though and she's the second string on jockey bookings. Likely pace-maker for her stablemate.

Betting

Forecast

Sound And Silence (5/2), Abel Handy (9/2), Battle Of Jericho (5/1), To Wafij (15/2), Mokaatil (8/1), Sankari Royale (12/1), Mrs Gallagher (16/1), Yolo Star (20/1), Pursuing The Dream (20/1), Neola (20/1), Spoof (100/1), Angel Force (100/1)

Verdict

Despite conceding weight to this field, SOUND AND SILENCE gives the impression he's still improving and he may be able to land back-to-back Group races for a yard in excellent form at present. Abel Handy is another who has more progression in him and his form behind the aforementioned Godolphin runner at York reads well in the context of this race. Fillies have a good record in this contest and Pursuing The Dream may do better on faster ground.
  1. Sound And Silence
