Galaxy Jack He was a third cheerleader on his first mile outing on this course last month and seems sure to share that experience, so he gets a nod to strike a second time when he asks with his pedigree that this long ride plays on his strengths. Midnight Lion, Mildyjama and Rathgar are others who should build on a promising opening effort in a race worth pursuing going forward.

There is a wide open look for this race and during TRUE He wasn’t as tough in battle as some of the other contestants, some things conspired against him at Thirsk last time and he was given another chance to show he’s heading in the right direction. Fellow four-year-old Alazwar leads the stakes along with Red Mirage and Victoria Cup winner Vafortino.

deceptive He’s only narrowly fallen to a subsequent winner in Doncaster last time around, and hoping to get a solid pace to aim for, he might be able to let go of his weight and finally pick up his losing run. Pettochside likely got caught in the wrong part of the track here last time around and this veteran treats well in his efforts laid out earlier in the year, while Antiphon may be better than the rest in a competitive race.

royal fleet He was at his best at Meydan earlier this year, finishing second in two Group B runs before winning the Group C Dubai Millennium Stakes in a similar run on his final start in February. He represents a yard that has no problem getting ready after a break and appears to be the one to conquer upon his return to British soil again in a listed company. Sinjari is another strong factor who will appreciate returning to this long journey and fear him the most.


secret shadow She shaped very well on her back during this course and the distance in May in a race that worked so well and obviously wasn’t 100 per cent disappointed in Haydock next time. She’s back at her level after an eight-week hiatus when she resumed her winning ways at this spot last month, and the subsequent 4lb rise may not be enough to prevent her from pursuing. It looks like the booming Wickywickywheels will fight back despite searching for a five timer.

Tommy J He took advantage of the drop mark when resuming winning ways at Ayr last week and is a well-positioned 2-pound converter here. Admittedly, this was his eighth career success on this track, so he obviously has an affinity for the place, but he’s the former winner here as well, and wouldn’t bother taking a step back in the journey. The Lone Ranger took a step back in the right direction at Newbury recently as well and would be a risk if built on that.

Competitive stuff with indian creek The most convincing choice given that he’s had excuses on several occasions since his win at Windsor in June and is now back on that successful mark. Glamorous Breeze continues to have a good heart and poses danger, while Dream By Day may have more to offer for new connections.
