Smart gelding. Bit below form 10 lengths fifth of 12 to Raise You in listed race at this course (12f, good to soft, 11/1) 34 days ago, needing stiffer test. Gets that here and represents in-form yard.

Smart colt. Evens, didn't need to be at best when winning 7-runner minor event at Gowran (9.4f, good) 12 days ago, well ridden. Step up to this trip isn't bound to suit.

85/40
Smart colt. Course winner. Bit below form seventh of 12 in Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot (7/4) at Royal Ascot (21.6f, good to firm) 6 days ago. Easy enough to blame the trip and much better expected.

Forecasts

Wordsworth (85/40), Gear Up (10/3), Master Of Reality (4/1), Temple Of Artemis (5/1), Manu Et Corde (13/2), Sussex (15/2), Camorra (10/1), Sunchart (20/1)

Verdict

This is a pretty quick turnaround for WORDSWORTH having raced at Royal Ascot but he couldn't be in better hands and tackling a more suitable trip, he may outclass these. Master of Reality is fancied to build on his reappearance, with Temple of Artemis, a stablemate of the selection, the improver in the race.
