Irish raider HARBOUR WIND has won 3 from 4 and relished the step up to this trip scoring with plenty in hand at Leopardstown last month. He is open to further improvement stepping into Group company and looks the one to beat.
Gallerist shouldn’t be underestimated as he has won 5 in a row now and showed a good attitude here last time. If improving again he should make a race of it.
Ghadah has won 3 of her last 4 now and was impressive in the Prix Dragon last time so has to be feared but NOUR AL MAURY could be even more progressive having completed the hat-trick easily at La Teste De Buch when last seen in July. Freshened up since she should have more to come and looks the one to beat.
Of the rest Thaydah Athbah makes her debut and any market support could prove significant in a race like this. No Tear Al Maury looked promising initially but arrives with a bit to prove now.
I thought TRUESHAN was mightily impressive at Doncaster. He absolutely tanked through the race and carted Hollie Doyle to the front but still had more in the locker when challenged and was always coming home on top. He should settle better here with that under his belt and with the ground ideal he should have too much for Emily Dickinson.
The latter stays all day too and was in good form when last seen chasing home Quickthron at Glorious Goodwood. She should run well under Frankie Dettori and looks the danger.
This is one of the trickiest races of the day but it might be worth siding with GOYA SENORA off the back of that neck second at Saint-Cloud. He probably wants better ground to be seen to his best but if building on that last run could still go close in a winnable race and is a nice each way price.
Matauri Gold also arrives here in good form after going close here at the start of the month and should give her running again. Santurin is another one I can see running well at a big price.
This very much revolves around ISLANDSINTHESTREAM and if he gives his running he should win this easily. He made a winning start scoring on debut at the Curragh and has chased home the exciting Henry Longfellow the last twice. That form stands out and he should have these covered.
Hit It is a well bred filly and she impressed winning by 2 lengths last time so looks the one most likely to chase the odds-on favourite home.
This is a good race but I’m surprised the hat-trick seeking SUMO SAM is such a big price. She absolutely dotted up in the Lillie Langtry at Glorious Goodwood and then proved that was no fluke to take the Park Hill at Doncaster last time. She is at the top of her game right now and could be worth siding with again with Jamie Spencer getting the leg up.
Melo Melo was denied the hat-trick by a short head here last time and deserves to be favourite off the back of that. Sea Silk Road is another one I expect to get competitive at least.
Roaring Lion colt EMBESTO could easily improve again and given he already has 3 wins from 4 starts I’m keen to side with him. He ran on strongly to force a dead-heat at Salisbury last time and while he’ll need to better that here I think there is good reason to think he will and 6/1 makes plenty of appeal.
Poker Face is also on the up and could be the danger chasing a hat-trick himself. Isaac Shelby has also done little wrong bumping into Kinross the last twice and will also get involved.
The four-timer may well be on the cards for HORIZON DORE as he again justified strong support to land the odds here at the start of the month. He seems to be getting better and better the more experience he gets and he is taken to come out on top again under Mickael Barzalona.
Erevann has been highly tried of late and was only actually beaten a length and a half behind Sauterne last time so looks the danger if staying the trip. Jack Darcy has Dettori up and is another one likely in there pitching.
The unexposed TUMBLER should be able to get back to winning ways here. This son of Kingman won 2 of his first 3 starts and while he has been a bit disappointing in two starts this season he was only beaten narrowly last time so ran better than the bare result suggests. He will find this easier and is still armed with potential.
Rock Blanc was actually in front of the selection last time but might struggle to confirm that here as he is more exposed and lacks consistency. Of the rest Brazilian Surprise could also get competitive and might be the biggest danger in a race lacking strength in depth.
A tough handicap to close but BULLACE deserves to win one of these. He has been knocking on the door with recent speed figures of 232 and was denied just a head at Deauville last time. If finding more should finally get back to winning ways.
Freja ran a cracker denied a neck last time and is the obvious danger. Memory Dream would also have to be feared if rediscovering his best in a tricky finale.
