Napanook is likely to appreciate the return to this trip but DUBAI LEGACY was far from disgraced at Royal Ascot and can continue Saeed Bin Suroor's good record when fitting his runners with a hood. Cool Reflection's sales price almost doubled from foal to yearling and perhaps Paul Cole's newcomer can chase the selection home.[Andrew Mount]

Soft-ground 6f debut winner at Doncaster early last month despite running green and sixth best of the far side group when tenth of 23 behind Calyx in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot (6f, good to firm); trainer 5-7 when using first-time hood this year (+£5.83) and needs to be winning this if he's to justify future Group 1 entries.

Runner-up to subsequent Chesham winner Arthur Kitt at Haydock (6f, good) before 4l third of seven when favourite for Nottingham maiden (5f, good); return to longer trip will help but more needed if he's to get off the mark tonight.

68,000euros foal, 130,000euros yearling; half-brother to Listed winner Burkes Rock (RPR 103); yard 3-21 with first-time out juveniles since the start of last year (+£41.50) and no surprise if he figured.

Half-sister to three winners including Pretty Vacant (RPR 86); local yard going well but fair to expect her to improve for initial experience.

Beat only one home at Windsor on debut (5f, good) and same story on the AW at Lingfield next time; huge improvement needed.
