The one to appeal most is OH THIS IS US, who has been better than ever this summer. Unfortunately may be the main danger.
Oh This Is Us
Career-best effort when landing a Class 2 handicap off a huge weight in June, winning a Group 3 on the All-Weather thereafter. Very poor at York on his latest start, however, and another jolt of progress is needed in this field.
Thereabouts on winning June form but took a bit of a backward step at York last time

Won this race in 2016, with plenty of form this year suggesting he's still more than capable at this level. He's placed in two Group 2 contests this campaign and his trainer is in flying form. Each-way claims if bouncing back from latest defeat.
Form figures of 315 in last three runnings of this and has the form to go well again

Won the Group 3 John Of Gaunt earlier in the season, a mixed bag since. Latest run at Deauville was fair and the form of connections can only be a positive. Leading claims if back to anywhere near his peak form.
Peak 7f form, including when winning Group 3 at Haydock in June, would see him bang there

Group 3 winner last term who hasn't found his peak form this year, going backwards from a promising fourth in the Lockinge on return. Behind Breton Rock latest and did have a bad draw, but a return to his very best is needed.
Hasn't quite fired lately, albeit running very respectably from a wide draw at Goodwood

Smart five-year-old who was a Group 3 winner at York last season, winning in Listed company earlier this campaign. All his form, however, has come over the mile, making his first run at a shorter trip. Big form claims, trip is a worry.
Drops to 7f for the first time (all runs at 1m or further); big form chance if coping

Yet to find success beyond Listed level, though he wasn't beaten far in a Group 3 at Salisbury in August. Won off a huge weight in handicap company earlier this month, entitled to be involved on the figures. Couldn't discount by any means.
Reliable performer who has a decent strike-rate and was back to winning ways latest

Lightly raced filly who produced a very good effort when fourth in the Hungerford Stakes in August, a neck behind Breton Rock. Remains unexposed at this trip and clearly capable of mixing it with the boys. Surely there is more to come.
Won a 7f Group 3 against her own sex at Lingfield in May; needs more

Three-year-old who has run just the five times, winning a Listed race at Ascot in July 2017. Ran well on return at Thirsk in August but failed to build on that three weeks later. Even his peak form leaves him with a lot to find.
Good reappearance second at Thirsk last month but more is needed

|23 May 17||Nottingham||6f Sft||52yNv||9-2||2/7||Green Power (nk)||8/1||-||84|
Won the Prix Morny at Deauville in August 2017, extremely disappointing in three runs this year. This easier than his recent Group 1 assignments, but he has stamina to prove and his reappearance in Group 2 company was poor.
Needs more on recent form but 7f may help now; Group 1 winner last season
