ARDLEIGH CHARMER: A winner four times this season but seems no better than a handicapper and surely outclassed.

DARK MOONDANCER: Has progressed quite nicely this season. Should appreciate this extra test of stamina.

ECO FRIENDLY: Wide-margin winner of a Group Three in heavy ground at Saint-Cloud last November but has run only twice since. Finished last of nine at Windsor on latest start.

NEDAWI: Lightly-raced but highly talented colt. Easily beat the Ebor winner, Tuning, at Goodwood in June and dead-heated with Rabah the following month.

SADIAN: Successful twice since joining John Dunlop in mid-season, though unimpressive at Salisbury last week. Close second to the Derby winner, High-Rise, in May. Guaranteed stayer.

SUNSHINE STREET: Belied odds of 150-1 to finish fourth in the Derby but then well beaten in the Irish equivalent. Found a mile and a quarter too short last time.

TA-LIM: Seemed below Classic class earlier in the season but has looked an improved performer more recently over this trip.

THE GLOW-WORM: Looked a St Leger type when sixth in the Derby and was having his first run since when fifth to Sea Wave at York last month. Goes particularly well with cut in the ground.

HIGH AND LOW: Lightly-raced filly who should appreciate this distance. Hampered when second to Catchascatchcan at York last time. May have been unsuited by the course in the Oaks.

CONCLUSION: It may pay to take a chance with HIGH AND LOW who should come into her own over this trip.
