Not the most consistent sort, as seen when failing to back up a Listed win at Ayr when well beaten at Saint-Cloud on return. Wants soft ground to be seen at his best and has another absence to overcome.

Found his level when gaining a first win since 2017 at Goodwood last time out in a Listed race. However, this is tougher and he's likely to encounter slower ground; others preferred.

Gained a first win since his maiden success when winning a Listed race at Dundalk last time out. Looks to have more on his plate here and might struggle to give weight to some of these.

Talented type on an artificial surface but nowhere near as consistent on turf. Has to give weight away to most of the field and others preferred.

Five wins from his first seven career starts including a Group 2 success at Sandown but hasn't looked the same since that win, despite getting his favoured soft conditions on a number of occasions. Needs first-time cheekpieces to spark revival.

Not all that consistent but showed he's capable at this sort of level when winning a competitive handicap at Meydan this winter. Any deterioration of conditions probably wouldn't be in his favour on evidence to date.

Remarkably improved from maiden company to win the Irish Derby last year but starting to look a little flattered from that run and he got an easy uncontested lead that day. Drop in class looks the right move but still has questions to answer.

Arrives bidding for a hat-trick after back-to-back wins at Epsom. Course winner who loves soft ground and is going the right way at present; every chance his progression can continue.

Back-to-back winner of competitive handicaps at Meydan this winter and out of his depth in Group 1 company last time out. Draw not ideal on return though and others preferred.

Recorded a belated hat-trick when winning at Meydan in January and while not at his best in Group 3 company later that season, he represents a yard in form and he's not fully exposed.

Won in Listed class at Listowel in 2017 and while only seen three times last year, one of those starts was a win in a competitive handicap at Galway. Only narrowly denied on return at the Curragh and would appreciate testing conditions here.

Improved for a switch to AW, winning a Wolverhampton maiden in fine style before landing a handicap at Chelmsford. Needs to prove he can be as effective on turf but yard have a fantastic record in this and he's not one to rule out. Cheekpieces on.

Won his first two starts and shaped like a return to form was imminent at Goodwood last time when runner-up to Elarqam. 3lb better off at the weights with that rival and less exposed; every chance he can be competitive here.

Group 3 winner at Leopardstown in May 2018 but has drawn a blank in six races since. Should appreciate this easier test than his latest two starts but still has a bit to prove at present.

Won twice at Leopardstown last year including a Listed race and improved from debut for this yard when only narrowly denied at Meydan behind Mountain Hunter last time. May be capable of better still for his new yard.

Group 2 winner of the Ribblesdale and that turned out to be decent form but she's not been consistent since. Has campaigned at a higher level to many in here and should appreciate this drop in class if building on her Group 1 third last time in US.

Betting

Forecast

Magic Wand (9/2), Addeybb (5/1), Elarqam (5/1), Star Of Bengal (13/2), Riven Light (17/2), Willie John (10/1), Mountain Angel (11/1), Latrobe (12/1), First Nation (12/1), Oasis Charm (20/1), Mountain Hunter (25/1), Dolphin Vista (33/1), Global Giant (50/1), Zorion (66/1), Zihba (66/1), Master The World (100/1)

Verdict

MAGIC WAND has been campaigned at a higher level than this for much of her career and while she hasn't won since winning at this meeting last year, she ran well in defeat in a Group 1 at Belmont Park last time. John Gosden has a fine record in this and Star Of Bengal may be able to continue his progression in first-time headgear. Mountain Angel is starting to fulfill his promise and is respected in a hat-trick bid.
