Forecast

Stylehunter (3/1), Ventura Knight (10/3), Caradoc (9/2), Buzz (9/2), Ayutthaya (11/2), Lunar Jet (7/1), Infrastructure (15/2), Gossip Column (10/1), Autumn War (10/1), Awake My Soul (12/1), Employer (16/1)

Verdict
STYLEHUNTER is just the type of unexposed older handicapper John Gosden excels with. and he can defy top weight. Buzz will be better for his return at Newcastle, and should benefit from the unusual booking of Ryan Moore, so looks the main danger, although Infrastructure is potentially well treated on the pick of last year's form and isn't easily ruled out.
