Third in Haydock Sprint Cup in a good 2021 campaign. Shaped as if needing the run after 10 months off when eighth of 13 in Hackwood Stakes at Newbury (6f) 14 days ago. Sure to build on that so she's no forlorn hope for her in-form yard.

Scored with a bit up his sleeve at Ripon in June but below-par fifth in listed race at York 21 days ago. Very useful at his best and a former runner-up in this contest so no surprise to see him bounce back.

One of the most progressive sprinters of last season (won 3 times and also third in this event). Only twice raced this term but not disgraced when seventh in Hackwood Stakes at Newbury and well in the mix if, as expected. building on that run.

Low-mileage 4-y-o who showed himself to be better than ever when running-on second of 10 in handicap at Doncaster (5f) 29 days ago. This return to 6f is a plus and he's a player off an unchanged mark with Ryan Moore now up.

Verdict

A case can be made for any number of these but the vote goes to REGIONAL. Ed Bethell's low-mileage 4-y-o teed himself up perfectly for this when a running-on second over 5f at Doncaster and this return to 6f coupled with the services of Ryan Moore can see him come home in front. The admirable C&D winner Mr Wagyu seems sure to be on the premises and is next on the list with 2020 victor Summerghand weighted to go close too. Popmaster, First Folio and Commanche Falls complete the shortlist.
