Only seen three times last year but placed in a Group 2 at Royal Ascot and made a winning return back at Ascot in May. Struggled when stepped up to this class last time out but not at his best that day and has each-way claims.

Won a handicap at Meydan in impressive fashion this winter and not disgraced in Group 1 company there when last seen. Won a Group 3 at Newbury when last seen on these shores and capable of making his presence felt at this level.

Has been a little below form in two starts this year and he will find this much tougher than the Listed race at York last time. All his best form is on softer ground than what he's going to get here and others preferred.

9/1

Won his first three starts and ran well in a pair of Group 3 races either side of the winter when stepped up in class. Disappointed in Listed class at Royal Ascot last time but no surprise to see him bounce back here and still unexposed.

Impressive Listed winner at Goodwood in May and met some trouble in running when fifth of 16 at Royal Ascot last time out. Step back up in trip will suit here and granted some luck in running, he's the one to beat.

Won a Group 3 at Newbury last year and returned to form with an excellent placed effort at Royal Ascot last time. Ought to run well here but Crowley prefers Laraaib and has a bit to find up at this level.

Improved from his debut to win his next two starts and probably did too much too soon at Royal Ascot last time out. Should be capable of making his presence felt at this level.

Betting

Forecast

Mirage Dancer (2/1), Raa Atoll (11/4), Barsanti (9/2), Best Solution (6/1), Laraaib (9/1), Muntahaa (12/1), Duretto (25/1), Algometer (25/1)

Verdict

MIRAGE DANCER looked unlucky at Royal Ascot last time out and with the step up in trip likely to suit, he may be able to gain compensation here. Best Solution is certainly a danger on his best form while Raa Atoll is completely unexposed and can be forgiven his effort last time.
