Verdict

If turning up here in anything like his best form then DUTCH CONNECTION should prove a cut above the rest of these. A former winner of the Group 2 Lennox Stakes over C&D, he hasn't been seen to best effect so far this year but has had excuses on those two occasions and will find this to be a much easier assignment. He's 2-2 in Group 3 company and with the ground to suit this seems like it should be the ideal race for him. As a result, he should be able to overcome the challenge of Britannia Stakes winner Bless Him, who returns to the track for the first time since that Ascot victory, and Tomyris , who unlike many of these should be capable of further improvement, perhaps significantly so.
