The final race of the Festival has thrown up some big-priced winners in recent years, including last yearï¿½s 20/1 shot, Pal of the Cat.
But weï¿½re focusing on a different trend instead with the stall draw and form entering our calculations.
Six of the last seven winners of this renewal have been drawn 1-6 and our pick of the day is WAR SPIRIT in stall five.
The Richard Hannon-trained charge is chasing a four-timer here having justified favourtisim in each of his previous three starts.
Money Team is another smart sprinter who is expected to go well while Desert Ace and Royal Brave should appreciate this fast ground.
Trainer John Gosden has taken the last two renewals and heï¿½ll be confident of a strong performance from Sultanina.
The Pinnacle Stakes winner was left behind by stablemate Pomology in the Lancashire Oaks last time out but could find this shorter test suits.
Meanwhile, Aidan Oï¿½Brienï¿½s Venus De Milo was a gameï¿½runner-up in the Pretty Polly on her previous appearance and is sure to attract support.
But itï¿½s the Sir Michael Stoute-trained MANGO DIVA who gets the nod from us.
The veteran trainer enjoyed a hat-trick of victories in this renewal at the turn of the century and has a great chance of achieving another success with the recent Kilboy Stakes victor.
We couldnï¿½t ignore the highlight of the day, especially with so much value on offer.
If youï¿½re looking for a longshot then this is the certainly the race to pick with the last six winners going off at odds of 12/1, 9/1, 13/2, 20/1, 14/1 and 40/1 respectively.
The Kieran Fallon-Saeed Bin Suroor combination boasts a 38% strike rate at the time of writing and in HOODNA they have another chance of boosting their partnership.
Third in the recent Bunbury Cup, a first win on turf could be secured by Godolphinï¿½s four-year-old.
However, higher drawn horses have tended to take the lionï¿½s share of recent renewals meaning the likes of Heritage Handicap winner Discussiontofollow and Joseph Oï¿½Brienï¿½s mount, Rex Imperator, also appeal.
