Justified favouritism in fine style at Pontefract last time out and this well bred sort should have more to give now stepped up in trip. Wears first-time cheekpieces.

Made it three wins from six starts at Windsor last time out. However, has much more on his plate here up 3lb in the handicap.

Novice winner at Chester but signs he hasn't trained on in four starts this campaign. Likely to be in need of more relief from the assessor.

A wide margin winner on his second start in a handicap at Ayr. Smart effort behind a subsequent winner back at that venue last time out and leniently dropped 1lb by the handicapper.

Still a maiden after four starts but bounced back to form at Newbury last time out when dead-heating for third. Winner has franked that form since and respected on handicap debut here.

Runner-up behind the subsequent Dante winner at Windsor on second start but beaten when long odds on at Newcastle last time. Has a bit to prove after that. Wears first-time tongue-tie.

Going the right way and on a potentially lenient mark given how close he got to Pondus (a rival who is now rated 98) at Sandown last time out. He's up in trip but that form looks solid and capable of going well.

Struggling to get her head in front but finally off the mark in good fashion when De Sousa took over at Newbury in June. Disappointing when last of three here subsequently though when odds on favourite.

Showed promise in France and off the mark on debut for this yard at Carlisle last time out in a maiden. Others probably better handicapped. Wears first-time cheekpieces.

Off the mark on handicap debut at Windsor last time out but a 6lb rise in the weights means he'll need improvement in this deeper contest. May do better if he can learn to settle.

Struggling in novice company on AW and while he's very well bred and cost 325,000 gns as a yearling, he needs to find plenty of improvement for turf debut.

Managed to get her head in front in her third start in handicap company but that was only a four-runner heat at Catterick and she has more on her plate here with 4lb higher mark to cope with.

Improved to win his last couple of starts in France and handicapper has given him a chance from his opening mark here. May have more to give up at this new trip.

Betting

Forecast

Aktau (5/2), Fox Vardy (7/2), Harrovian (4/1), Country (9/2), Deal A Dollar (8/1), High Commissioner (10/1), Asian Angel (12/1), Sapa Inca (14/1), Quintada (16/1), Yellow Tiger (25/1), Mordred (33/1), Jersey Wonder (33/1), Grey D'Ars (50/1), Top Power (50/1)

Verdict

John Gosden is enjoying a remarkable Goodwood Festival and he has a live chance in this race with HARROVIAN who should improve for the step up in trip here. With first-time cheekpieces another potential source of improvement, he may be able to defy top-weight. Country is another in first-time headgear who is respected on handicap debut. Mark Johnston is another trainer enjoying a fine week and Asian Angel has each-way claims after his effort last time out.
