2.00: All of those with previous racecourse experience also have Group One entries. Aidan O'Brien's Coliseum and the Doncaster scorer Auction House have to be respected, but ROYAL REBEL, with Olivier Peslier in the saddle, is expected to improve substantially on his debut fourth at Newmarket. He looks the best bet.

2.35: There is a danger of a muddling race with this small field, but Celeric and CANON CAN performed easily the best of these last time out, and Canon Can has to be the selection in receipt of 6lb.


3.10: POLAR PRINCE is much better than a 33-1-shot. He was carrying a penalty when fourth in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot, unlike the first and second that day, Faithful Son and Chester House. Fast ground will suit him a lot better than the going at Royal Ascot.

3.45: The Godolphin team can take this for the second year running thanks to SEA WAVE. Brother to Derby runner-up Tamure, this colt has increasingly looked the part with his appearances at a lower level, winning easily at Lingfield and Leicester, and should justify the step up in class at the expense of the front-runner Rabah and Sir Michael Stoute's unexposed contestant, Peak Path.
