There is no doubt that a peak-form Harry Angel would be the one to beat even under a 5lb penalty but he was a bit too free when beaten on last season's first and final runs and, with Group 1 targets his main aim this season, he could just be vulnerable first time out here. Preference is for last year's winner TASLEET, who was second in three Group 1s last season (including to Harry Angel at Haydock) and, in receipt of that 5lb from the Godolphin colt today, may be the answer. Brando is third best and the clear pick of the other five runners. [Mel Cullinan]

Did a bit too much too soon on final start last season and main quibble here is whether he'll be too exuberant on this seasonal debut; top class when winning 6f Group 1s at Newmarket and Haydock last season, latter performance exceptional even by top-flight standards; concedes weight all round but hard to beat if in peak form.

Can throw in the odd poor run, as when favourite for this race last year; enhanced his good reappearance record though when back in top form with Group 3 win at Newmarket last month on first run since having had a wind operation; that and pick of his other form entitles him to plenty of respect on these terms.

Some smart form last season, albeit best of it at 7f and a bit up and down overall; was gelded at the end of the season; resumed with good reappearance second to Brando in 6f Group 3 at Newmarket last month; more needed but he hasn't had that much racing at 6f.

Began last season with three wins, including Listed win against her own sex at Nottingham and Group 3 success at Baden-Baden; even that form leaves her with a good bit to find here and was below par on last month's return.

Smart sprinter at his best last season, when form included two wins at 5f and second in a Group 3 which seemed to prove his stamina for 6f; bought out of Robert Cowell's for 110,000gns in the autumn and subsequently had a wind op; not at best on reappearance recently but something to find even if showing peak form in reapplied tongue tie.

Better than ever last season after a heavily truncated 2016 campaign, last year's efforts including a decisive win in this race and three seconds in 6f Group 1s, including to 4l winner Harry Angel at Haydock; capable of giving the Godolphin colt a real race on these terms and commands major respect.

At least as good as ever as an 8yo judging by most decisive reappearance win in Listed race at Doncaster in March, but in against much stronger opposition today and has a bit to find on balance; best form is on good or slower.
