49-9OR: 106
9/2

Winner of his first two starts but compromised his chance with a slow start in a C&D Group 3 last time (Guaranteed second). Should still have more to give and less exposed than the remainder of his rivals.

8/1

Won a valuable handicap at Haydock earlier this year and got his head back in front at Newmarket last month. Possibly didn't stay when well beaten in the Ebor last time and well worth a crack at Group company.

Fairly prolific in South America but beaten a long way on debut for this yard in Listed class at Chester. Doesn't warrant a step up in class on that evidence.

7/2

Arrives here bidding for a hat-trick having landed back-to-back Group 3 races at the Curragh this summer. Form of those nothing special but it was a game effort last time out and he's worth respecting with more progress on the cards.

Sole success in seven starts came in a handicap at Navan and in behind Buckhurst in a Group 3 earlier in the campaign. Disappointed at odds on last time though and has a bit to find on form here.

7/1

Group 3 winner at this venue as a juvenile and won in Listed company at the Curragh in June. Consistent sort who wasn't far behind Buckhurst last time but needs to find improvement if he's going to reverse form with that rival and this is tougher.

Won each of his first two starts and bounced back from disappointment at Goodwood when runner-up behind Buckhurst last time out. Return to quicker ground should suit and he's less exposed than some.

39-1OR: 110BF
7/1

Won his maiden at the Curragh last year and only narrowly denied by stablemate Japan in the Beresford Stakes at Naas. That's form that could hardly have worked out any better and he must be respected, despite a sizable absence here.

7/2

Won twice as a juvenile but yet to win in six starts this year. Drop down in class should help as well as the return to quicker ground but yard have stronger claims with Mount Everest.

Betting

Forecast

Norway (7/2), Buckhurst (7/2), Broad Street (9/2), Leo De Fury (6/1), Mount Everest (7/1), Guaranteed (7/1), Kelly's Dino (8/1), Blenheim Palace (20/1), Stivers (33/1)

Verdict

Aidan O'Brien bids to land back-to-back renewals of this race with three representatives and MOUNT EVEREST gives him his best chance. Runner-up to Japan as a two-year-old, the son of Galileo could prove to be a class above his rivals here. Buckhurst is a consistent sort who is proven at this level while Kelly's Dino is an interesting contender having failed to stay the trip in the Ebor last time out.
