Losing run stretches back to a Group 2 success at Doncaster in 2017. Out of form in three starts this year and easily opposable at present.

Won a novice race at Lingfield last year and while that's his sole success to date, he produced a huge effort to only be narrowly denied in the Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes at Royal Ascot last time. Due to go up 4lb for that and could go well.

Won twice in 2017, most notably the Melrose Handicap at York. Missed all of last season and was entitled to need the run on his return at Royal Ascot last time. Step back up in trip will be in his favour and not one to underestimate.

Unbeaten in his first three starts last year, most notably landing a conditions race at Newbury in October and that race has worked out well subsequently. Respectable effort in defeat on return at Chantilly in Listed class and may come on for that.

Unbeaten in his first six starts for this yard and not seen to best effect at Newcastle last time out in the Northumberland Plate, finishing a never nearer sixth of 19. Worth forgiving that on return to turf here.

Has an impressive strike-rate of eight wins from 15 starts but the handicapper just seems to have caught up with him on this year's evidence. Still running well in defeat though so not one to entirely rule out.

A winner of four of his nine starts and has been running well in defeat in his last couple of runs in big field handicaps, particularly his fifth in an ultra-competitive race at Royal Ascot last time. Can go well again from the same mark.

Made it four wins from 11 starts on AW last time out and effective on turf, as seen when fourth in a handicap at 2018's Royal Ascot fixture. 5lb rise for latest success perhaps a little harsh but may have more to give up in trip here.

Goodwood winner on debut for this yard and only narrowly denied in Listed class next time out but shaped as if amiss on a couple of his starts towards the end of last season and failed to beat a rival home on his return; plenty to prove at present.

Won a novice event at Haydock last year and got his head back in front on second start for this yard at Pontefract last time having shaped with promise on his reappearance. 5lb rise not overly harsh for that and rates as a potential improver here.

Hasn't won since a soft ground success at Newbury in 2017 but he ran a huge race in the Ascot Stakes two starts back and possible he found the Northumberland Plate coming too soon. Return to turf will suit and lurks on a decent mark.

Has only won once on the Flat since 2015 and out of form in two starts since a brief spell over hurdles. Becoming well-handicapped but clearly a risky proposition at present.

Has been in good form throughout this campaign, recording two wins and several placed efforts. Solid form again when fifth of 17 at Haydock last week and still feasibly handicapped on his very best form.

Gained a first win since his Leopardstown Listed success in 2017 at Newcastle in April. Has found life tougher from his revised handicap mark and while not beaten all that far at Ayr last time, this is tougher.

Has been in very poor form in two starts since his win here (Rowley course) in May and hard to fancy on recent evidence. Caliburn looks to be the yard's first-string.

Has just one win since 2016 but showed signs a return to form may be near at Ayr last time when finishing well from off the pace to finish sixth of 14. Well-handicapped if he can build on that but not the most reliable these days.

Two wins from 24 starts and barely beaten a rival home in three runs this year. Very hard to fancy from 3lb out of the handicap.

Verdict

SECRET ADVISOR was entitled to need the run last time out having missed all of last season and he could still be well-handicapped after his impressive win in a competitive York handicap at the back end of 2017. Eddystone Rock has been running well all season and can do so again while Time To Study isn't ruled out on his return to turf if he can find his Royal Ascot form from two starts ago. The well in Ben Vrackie is the main danger to the selection if he can build on his second from last time.
