Landed the Group 2 Summer Mile at Ascot last month. Put in his place back in Group 1 company at Goodwood since but much respeceted at this slightly lower level, despite his penalty.

9/1
Four-time winner who has recorded excellent placed efforts in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot and Bunbury Cup at Newmarket this summer. Bit disappointing with cheekpieces added when well held in International back at Ascot last time but he's not the type to stay down for long. Headgear off.

Grand servant who made all in Group 3 events at Haydock and Newmarket this summer. Another fine effort when close third in Lennox at Goodwood last month. Major player.

Smart colt who has landed Windsor listed and Salisbury conditions events (both 6f) this term. Successful over 7f last year. Likely to be in the shake-up.

Has enjoyed some of her finest hours at this venue. Met a bit of trouble and shaped as if still in form when fifth in Group 3 Hackwood here (6f, good to firm) 28 days ago. Just just her second attempt over 7f. Player if her stamina holds.

Smart filly at her best. Latest 3¼ lengths fifth of 15 to Oscula in Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood (7f, good to firm) was no more than respectable, though, and this is tougher if anything.

Showed improved form back down in trip when 1¼ lengths third of 15 to Noble Truth in Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot (7f, good to firm) 8 weeks ago. Claims if in similar form.

Won 4 of his first 5 starts, including a a 6f course listed race in May. Cheekpieces on first time, bit disappointing when only eighth of 20 in Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot but freshened up since and no surprise were he to resume his progression now. Headgear off.

Forecasts

Pogo (5/2), Tiber Flow (4/1), Chindit (4/1), Dubai Poet (6/1), Double Or Bubble (6/1), Jumby (9/1), Happy Romance (12/1), Wings Of War (22/1), Primo Bacio (22/1), Run To Freedom (25/1)

Verdict

Plenty in with a shout in an open renewal of this Group 2. The front-running POGO has thrived over 7f this summer and is the percentage call. Tiber Flow can bounce back from a lesser effort in the Commonwealth Cup and provide the chief threat ahead of Richard Hannon pair Chindit and Happy Romance.
