Preference is for the proven Group-race form of GIUSEPPE GARIBALDI, who sets the standard on recent placed efforts in Group 2s at Ascot and the Curragh and can add to the stable's win in this event in 2016. Unexposed Loxley is the main danger ahead of Wells Farhh Go and unlucky Ascot handicap third First Eleven. [Mel Cullinan]

Very well-bred colt (half brother to top-class miler Kingman) who has been progressing well in handicaps, including on good to firm for easy win at Newbury in May and most unlucky third in the 1m4f King George V at Ascot where he would have been a clear winner but for meeting trouble in running; this is harder but he is on the upgrade and much respected for trainer who has win this four times since 2011.

Standing up well to a busy schedule, including winning Listed race at Leopardstown last month and highly creditable placed runs in 1m4f and 1m6f Group 2s at Ascot and the Curragh since; sets the standard, albeit at a not particularly high level for the race standard; leading chance.

Well-bred colt whose only defeat in three starts came when seventh in Group 1 Racing Post Trophy; very useful form when winning 1m2f novice here (good to firm) on last month's return and he doesn't have much to find with the best of these on that; looked a potential stayer when dead-heating over 1m1f in very soft ground on his debut and much respected upped to 1m5f now.

Won both starts last year, latterly in Group 3 at York (7f) in August; bred to be better with more time and distance so that 2017 promise isn't lightly forgotten despite down-the-field runs in Group 2 races at York (1m2f; run possibly needed) and Ascot (1m4f) this season; never really involved in muddling race last time but may well do better with greater accent on stamina here.

Has improved from race to race, last time off the mark in good style at Haydock (good to firm); further progress is likely from this thrice-raced colt and he stays 1m4f well but this is a much tougher assignment and a good deal more is required from him.

Brother to 2015 St Leger second Bondi Beach; won 1m2f Cork maiden last month but seemingly well held by stablemate Giuseppe Garibaldi on latest 1m6f Curragh running, both on good to firm; still very early days for him but improvement is definitely needed.

All starts on good to firm; won the second of his two starts as 2yo, in 7f maiden here last July; easily a career best when fifth at 100-1 to clearcut winner in Ascot Group 3 last time on step up to 1m2f; more needed here and mixed messages on pedigree as regards suitability of this longer trip.

Fulfilled Goodwood debut promise when winning by a wide margin in 1m4f novice on Wolverhampton AW ten days ago; could hardly have done it much better there but this race is altogether harder and major improvement is needed on the bare form.
