Group 3 winner whose last win came in the Listed Rous Stakes at Ascot this time last year. Well below that form lately and others preferred here.

Unexposed on turf, where she is 1-7 although handicap mark has gone up since her last run due to AW success. Can't rule her out, but more needed.

C&D winner last year (good) from 3lb higher. Also scored from 1lb higher on AW this year. Recent turf efforts uninspiring, however, so needs to bounce right back.

Chasing a hat-trick after wins at Carlisle and Leicester. Up another 3lb for the latter, but clearly still improving. Claims.

Has won over both this trip and 6f this year on a sound or fast surface. 2lb lower than the more recent of those. Step back in right direction last time, but more needed.

Dual distance winner on good to firm this season and has continued to be competitive at this level since being stepped up. More needed for another win, however.

Without a win since June 2016. Not seen on turf for about a year and has dropped 7lb in the handicap since then. Can go well when fresh, so an eye on the market would be prudent as he is back on a handy mark.

C&D scorer from 3lb higher when completing a hat-trick last summer. Ran a cracker when going very close from this mark at Ascot on Saturday. Would ideally prefer it slower, but acts on good and enters calculations again.

6lb higher than when scoring at Thirsk (5f, good to soft) in a 0-85 in August. Well held from this mark in a better race last time, and more needed despite drop in grade.

Dual Class 2 winner over C&D at the Dante meeting, the latter (last year) from 14lb higher. Form largely on the slide this season, but a little better last time. 2lb drop will help and also 3lb claimed, so revival not ruled out.

Dual C&D winner, including this race last year (good, stall 6) from 4lb higher. Below that level throughout this season, but decent effort at Ripon last time out and couldn't rule out another seasonal peak now back in this race.

C&D winner last year, when 2lb higher. Acts on good, though best efforts have been on fast ground. Recent efforts elsewhere give him a bit to find from this mark at present.

50/1

Multiple 5f winner who is effective on good/good to firm. 3lb higher than his latest win at Ayr. Much of his race is about getting a good start. If he can, he is likely to try to make all, but will need to be at his best to repel latecomers.

Remains 4lb higher than his last win two years ago. Best efforts this season (including in first-time cheekpieces two starts ago) give him a chance from this mark. Blinkers now tried. Very much an each-way player.

2lb lower than when scoring at Catterick (5f, good to firm) in May. Also went close back there from 4lb higher than today. Claims if able to reproduce that, but badly in need of a revival based on recent efforts.

Scored at Chester (5½f, good) last month, when 1lb lower, but has not backed that up in three subsequent runs. Bit to prove.

Is showing some improvement. Won at Windsor last month and then went very close at Goodwood, when 1lb lower. Bit more needed, but no surprise if he goes close again.

4lb higher than when last winning at Salisbury (5f, good) in August. Respectable effort at Haydock (6f) last time, but possible a little short on class at this level.

Betting

Forecast

Holmeswood (4/1), East Street Revue (6/1), Camacho Chief (7/1), Island Of Life (7/1), Dark Shot (8/1), Henley (9/1), Iconic Knight (10/1), Just Glamorous (12/1), Copper Knight (14/1), Duke Of Firenze (14/1), Billy Dylan (16/1), Excessable (20/1), Watchable (20/1), Signore Piccolo (25/1), Bowson Fred (25/1), Gold Filigree (25/1), Bossipop (33/1), Midnight Malibu (33/1), Requinto Dawn (33/1), Longroom (50/1)

Verdict

A typically open Knavesmire sprint where the hat-trick seeking Camacho Chief will probably be on many short-lists, along with stablemate Holmeswood, after another super effort last weekend. Island Of Life and Iconic Knight are both very interesting, while it would be no surprise to see last year's winner East Street Revue very competitive once again. However, it could be worth chancing BOWSON FRED, who has dropped to the sort of mark from which he may prove very effective.
