4/9
Top-class colt who took his unbeaten run to six with stylish success in Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot (1m) by neck from Palace Pier. Sort to do even better in 2022, and he will prove hard to beat on his seasonal return.

Smart colt who resumed with comfortable win in 1m listed race at Doncaster 49 days ago by 2¼ lengths from Tempus. Course winner too, but this demands a lot more.

Lightly-raced 7f winner who returned from 12 months off with good ninth of 17 in handicap over C&D 28 days ago. This is a very big ask, however.

40/1
Smart performer at 2 yrs. Only twice raced since, but he got back to winning ways in 1m listed contest at Ascot 17 days ago. Not discounted for place purposes if he can build on that success.

High-class horse at his best but he's been well below par both starts since scoring at Meydan in January. Course winner has plenty to prove at present.

33/1
His last win came in 2020, but he's a smart performer and posted creditable second of 4 to New Mandate in 1m listed race at Ascot 17 days ago. Has a lot on his plate here, though.

Smart horse who resumed with good fifth of 6 to Lights On in Mile at Sandown 22 days ago. Still low mileage, but this is no easy ask.

11/1
Very smart filly who landed her third Group 1 success in the Sussex Stakes last summer. Hooded when below-par third in Mile at Sandown 22 days ago, but she's not written off now the headgear is quickly dispensed with.

10/1
Last year's 1000 Guineas winner who resumed with comfortable victory in Park Express Stakes at the Curragh (1m) 49 days ago. Likeable and consistent sort. Solid claims.

Forecasts

Baaeed (4/9), Real World (5/1), Mother Earth (10/1), Alcohol Free (11/1), Chindit (20/1), Sir Busker (33/1), Sunray Major (40/1), New Mandate (40/1), Etonian (150/1)

Verdict

BAAEED made giant strides in 2021 and signed off with a top-class win over Palace Pier in Ascot's Queen Elizabeth II Stakes. There promises to be even more to come from him this term so he's confidently expected to extend his winning run to seven. Mother Earth is a likeable Classic-winning filly and she appeals as the one to chase home William Haggas' unbeaten colt ahead of last season's Sussex Stakes heroine Alcohol Free.
