He sees out the mile really well and shapes as though stepping up to this trip will bring lots of improvement.

He has few miles on the clock and goes off the same mark as that big effort.

OXTED (4.25 Newmarket, nb)

He won this race 12 months ago and put in his best effort since dropped back to 5f when winning a Royal Ascot Group 1 last time.

A repeat of that form would see him defend his crown.

DHABAB (3.15 Newmarket, treble)

He had no luck in running when a fast-finishing sixth in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot.

He had a full tank crossing the line less than two lengths behind the winner.

He won well on debut at Leicester and can improve enough to take this over what should be an ideal trip.
