Won and placed for John Gosden but disappointed on his two most recent starts for this yard. Wears cheekpieces for the first time and draw could have been kinder here.

Impressive soft ground Listed winner over this trip at Epsom at the start of last month. Struggled on quicker ground subsequently. Well drawn here but would appreciate any overnight rain.

Betting

Forecast

Oh This Is Us (3/1), Lake Volta (3/1), Arbalet (7/2), Make Music (5/1), Shabaaby (8/1), Kimberella (9/1), Tommy Taylor (14/1), Promising (33/1), Chessman (50/1), Simply Me (50/1)

Verdict

The consistent OH THIS IS US looks capable of recording his eighth career success in what looks a competitive Listed contest. The selection was a winner over this trip earlier in the year and can see off Arbalet who put in a good performance in finishing fifth in a Group 3 event last time out. Kimberella has good form over this trip in the past and looks capable of finishing third.
