Six-time winner for Mark Johnston but out of sorts since victorious at Chester (1m2½f, soft) back in May. Joined new connections since last run two months ago but even his best form would see him struggle to make an impact.

Listed winner as a juvenile and won a Group 3 at Longchamp (1m1f, heavy) on seasonal debut in 2018. Hasn't built on that promise and well beaten on his only start this year. Entitled to some respect on his best but has questions to answer.

Won C&D Cambridgeshire in 2017 and won Listed races both years since including last time out Clairefontaine (1m1f, good to soft) two months ago. Any rain will be a positive and this trip suits well so should definitely be on the shortlist.

5/1

Ex-French horse who has done well for new yard this term with a narrow defeat in the Spring Cup before wins at Chelmsford (1m2f, Polytrack) and the July Course (1m, good). Broke blood vessel last time which tempers enthusiasm but can go well fresh.

An admirable performer to whom all conditions seem to come a like. Won and placed between 1m-1m2½f from Listed to Group 2 level and matched his best when beaten a head at Leopardstown (1m, good) last time out. Is a danger to all.

Group 3 winner for this yard in 2018 but after an aborted spell in America, he has taken time to return to form. Has 2L to find with Matterhorn two starts ago but beaten a neck at Cork (1m½f, yielding to soft) 11 days ago and has place claims.

Cost 2,600,000 gns as yearling and made an impressive start at Ascot 13 months ago. Beaten in Listed/Group 3 races after and returned from 11 month absence to finish fourth at Sandown (1m, good) recently. Still has potential but needs improvement.

Has shown improvement all season, winning twice including a Listed contest at Ascot (1m, good to firm) three runs ago. Runner-up in Group 3 company the last twice (including over this trip last time) and represents leading connections.

4/1

Impressive on debut here last year (7f, soft) and followed-up in a Listed race at Deauville (7½f, Polytrack). Promising return in August but things never got a run at Saint-Cloud eight days ago. Best to put a line through that and retains potential.

Betting

Forecast

Matterhorn (7/2), Feliciana De Vega (4/1), Indeed (5/1), Pincheck (7/1), Duneflower (7/1), Dolphin Vista (7/1), Look Around (7/1), Prince Eiji (9/1), Crossed Baton (10/1), Chilean (16/1), Aquarium (20/1)

Verdict

An intriguing race to end proceedings with a tentative vote given to FELICIANA DE VEGA. The Beckett team are in good heart, she has won here and just didn't get the rub of the green last week at Saint-Cloud. There is more to come. Matterhorn is a reliable individual, particularly at this level and is more than likely to give his running whilst Dolphin Vista is a C&D winner who will appreciate any further softening of the ground.
