39-7OR: 110CD
9/2

Progressive sort who rounded off his juvenile campaign with victory in a C&D Group 3 contest. Has earned top weight and has to be taken seriously.

5/2

Scored on debut at Nottingham last June and was placed three times in Group 2 company later in the season. Steps up from 6f to 7f, but no obvious reason why he will not stay the trip for stable whose three-year-olds are going well.

Scored twice last summer, but was out of his depth in Group 1 company on final two starts. Represents last year's successful stable which would have had several candidates for this race. Tongue tied for the first time.

2/1

Yarmouth scorer who chased home Saturday's Greenham Stakes winner at Newbury on only subsequent run in a Group 3 contest. That form is cast iron and suggests he may have got in this race on a lenient mark.

Stable companion of top-weight Arctic Sound who performed well at a decent level as a two-year-old. Cut little ice in three starts at Meydan earlier this year and needs to bounce back under his top-class jockey.

Looked a colt with a future when scoring on debut at Doncaster, but could never quite build on that success albeit in high-class company. Makes his handicap debut off a fair mark and may yet fulfil that earlier promise stepped up in distance.

Debut success on the July course last summer and was behind Kuwait Currency in a Listed race at Salisbury next time. Not at his best on final start in France, but reappears on a realistic mark and can get involved.

Forecast

Azano (2/1), Shine So Bright (5/2), Arctic Sound (9/2), Space Traveller (10/1), Dubai Dominion (11/1), Kuwait Currency (12/1), Victory Command (14/1)

Verdict

Top-weight Arctic Sound is tough and progressive, but he faces a stiff task against some promising sorts on these terms and the vote goes to AZANO, who chased home a high-class colt on his final start as a juvenile and looks nicely weighted on that evidence. Shine So Bright should enjoy this step up in distance and looks a big danger, along with Kuwait Currency from last year's winning stable.
