5/2

Group 3 winner at the Curragh (1m2f) and unlucky not to add to that record in two runs since, particularly last time behind Nayef Road at Goodwood. Still seemingly improving with each run and solid claims of reversing form now 3lb better off.

Listed winner at Longchamp and went on to finish third in the Grand Prix de Paris back at that venue, albeit seemingly flattered having been well placed. Beaten a long way behind Nayef Road and Constantinople last time at Goodwood; others preferred.

Unbeaten in three and made a mockery of his opening mark at Newbury last time, winning by 4½L eased down. Form of that race boosted by the third winning twice since and he's a fascinating contender, despite this test representing a step up in class.

Got his head back in front at Goodwood last time when only just getting the better of Constantinople. Worse off at the weights here though and his optimum trip may prove to be over a bit further than this.

10/1

Listed winner as a juvenile but hasn't looked a threat at Group 1/2 level so far this campaign, though has been deployed as a pacemaker at times. Could be here to ensure a solid gallop for his stablemate again and has a bit to prove at this level.

Betting

Forecast

Logician (10/11), Constantinople (5/2), Nayef Road (15/2), Norway (10/1), Jalmoud (12/1)

Verdict

CONSTANTINOPLE probably should have won the Gordon Stakes last time out when narrowly denied by Nayef Road and now that he arrives better off at the weights, he ought to be up to reversing the form. The unbeaten Logician is the main danger for a yard who have won this twice since 2012. The unbeaten son of Frankel won with any amount in hand on handicap debut last time out and with more improvement on the cards, he rates as a fascinating contender for connections enjoying a remarkable year.
