39-6OR: 107
8/1

Listed winner over 7f here on Rowley course in May but well beaten at Royal Ascot last time. There's a suspicion he's better than that but he will need to be if he's going to concede weight to some of these rivals.

Won two of his first three starts and ran well in a Group 2 at Goodwood when last seen on these shores in August. Didn't need to improve to win a Listed race in Meydan in March but disappointed when favourite in the German Guineas. Needs more here.

4/1

Justified favouritism at Newcastle on return and only just touched off at Goodwood in May. Well beaten in a Royal Ascot Group 3 last time but not at his best and ought to appreciate this drop in class. Second string on jockey bookings.

9/2

Not disgraced in the Racing Post Trophy on final start as a juvenile and ran well behind a promising sort at Ascot on his return. Disappointed behind the same rival at Royal Ascot but still early days and he's the first-string on jockey bookings.

Won at Kempton on final start of 2017 but he was behind Gabr at Sandown two starts back and made no impression in a French Group 3 last time. Has a bit to prove but Moore on board is a positive.

Won his first two starts but hasn't been able to justify his place at a higher level since and well beaten last time out on debut for this yard at Ascot. Has plenty to prove at this level.

Won a Doncaster handicap in May and not disgraced in a Group 3 at Royal Ascot last time out. Will still need more to be involved here but can't be ruled out for a yard in flying form.

C&D winner here in a maiden on debut last month but it's hard to imagine him making his presence felt at this level on just his second start.

Won over this trip on the Rowley Mile in May and has run well when upped in class since, particularly at Royal Ascot in a Group 3 last time out. Very much capable of making his presence felt at this level.

Course winner over 7f last year and won a valuable sales race at York next time out. However, struggled in Meydan this winter and didn't shape like a return to form was imminent at Royal Ascot last time.

Won twice on AW this winter on first two career starts and ran a huge race in a Group 3 at Royal Ascot last time out. This is easier and no surprise to see him go well again here.

Won twice as a juvenile and running well this year. No match for subsequent Derby winner Masar in the Craven and disappointed at York next time but produced a better effort when third in a Listed race at Longchamp last time. Not discounted.

Betting

Forecast

Symbolization (10/3), Emaraaty (4/1), Gabr (9/2), Masaarr (7/1), Walk In The Sun (7/1), Purser (8/1), Glendevon (11/1), Zaman (25/1), White Mocha (25/1), Naval Intelligence (33/1), Lethal Steps (50/1), Tangled (50/1)

Verdict

SYMBOLIZATION wasn't disgraced in the Irish 2,000 Guineas and backed that up with a solid effort in Group 3 class at Royal Ascot last time. With the step up in trip likely to suit, he could prove to be the one to beat. It's interesting Jim Crowley rides Gabr here and he can put his latest effort behind him Walk In The Sun isn't ruled out after an excellent run at big odds last time if he can back that effort up.
