4/9

High class colt, won consecutive Group 1 races last year. Followed a win in the July Cup with a demolition job in the Sprint Cup (Tasleet runner-up) and while below form at Ascot last time he's hard to oppose despite carrying a penalty.

7/2

Four-time Group-race winner who produced a career best at Deauville last year. Not the strongest race for the grade and may prefer softer ground than what is likely but won a Group 3 well on return at Newmarket last month and has place claims.

50/1

Has won three of his 24 starts and looks out of his depth at this level. Well beaten on return for this yard at Newmarket on first start since a wind op and has plenty to find on form.

6/1

C&D Listed winner as a juvenile and while he didn't quite match that level of form as a three-year-old, he ran well behind Brando in a Group 3 at Newmarket last time. Needs to improve to reverse the form here and this obviously a tougher race.

40/1

Record a hat-trick that culminated in a Group 3 win in Germany last year. Didn't really go on from that effort, finishing sixth of 13 in a Group 3 last year and has more on her plate on her return.

Forecast

Harry Angel (4/9), Brando (7/2), Tasleet (4/1), Sir Dancealot (6/1), Perfect Pasture (25/1), Artistica (40/1), Ornate (50/1)

Verdict

HARRY ANGEL and Tasleet are set to do battle once again and it's the former who is preferred despite having to carry a penalty. 2017's Champion Sprinter was undone by tacky ground at Ascot when last seen but he's worthy of plenty of respect down in class on a faster surface here. Tasleet is respected in his bid for back-to-back renewals and gets a useful 7lb swing in the weights for his 4L defeat in the Sprint Cup at Haydock in September. Brando got the better of Sir Dancealot last time out and is taken to confirm those placings and finish in the first three.
