Ready preference is for LAH TI DAR (nap), who ran to a very high level when routing the opposition in a fillies' Listed race at York.
Lah Ti Dar
Hearty battler who finished second in the Epsom Derby back in June, not matching that form in three runs since. Ran poorly at Goodwood last time and it remains to be seen whether he'll really want this trip. Likely lacks the class.
Less good lately but this trip promises to suit and big player on his Derby 2nd in June

|25 Apr 18||Epsom||1m 2f Gd||3yL||9-1||3/8||Crossed Baton (1½L)||15/8F||103||98|
Has really found his feet in recent starts, building on a Royal Ascot success when winning the Group 1 Prix de Paris in July. Given plenty to do at York last time over shorter, remains unexposed as a stayer and should have plenty more to offer.
Has come into his own since more patient tactics were adopted; high class; claims

Has won four of his six starts, last seen winning a Group 2 at Deauville is cosy fashion. That was over 1m 4f on softer ground and there is plenty of stamina in his pedigree. That said, even his best form leaves him with something to find.
4 from 6; requires a further step up and has stamina to prove

|15 Oct 17||Goodwood||1m 1f Sft||42yNv||9-2||1/6||Istanbul Sultan (dht)||5/4F||-||79|
Has been tasked with front-running duties on recent starts, weakening tamely from the lead in the Great Voltigeur at York last time. Behind Kew Gardens in the Queen's Vase back in June, others readily preferred.
Has adopted pacemaking duties lately; presumably set for similar role today

|30 Sep 17||Newmarket||1m GS||2yG2||9-0||2/5||Roaring Lion (nk)||5/6F||112||110|
Gained his second Group 2 success when winning the 1m 4f Great Voltigeur at York in August. That form brings him into the reckoning and shapes as though two extra furlongs will be fine. May, however, struggle to hold back Kew Gardens this time.
York win makes this game colt a real contender here but not certain to stay

|18 Apr 18||Newmarket||1m 2f Gd||33yHc||9-7||1/10||Dukhan (shd)||5/2F||94||104|
Front-runner who was well beaten on his only previous attempt of pattern company, third in the Melrose Handicap at York in August. Would need to improve a huge amount to play any role today.
Good third in top York handicap last time; fair bit more needed to be involved

|24 Mar 18||Doncaster||1m 2f Sft||53yMd||9-5||1/10||Argentello (¾L)||11/8F||-||88|
Has run just the five times, winning a Listed race at Hamilton in July. Not disgraced behind Hamada in 1m 5f Group 3 at Newbury in August, shaping as though he'd relish further. He does, however, need to find a huge amount of improvement.
Fair bit more needed but further progress is likely, especially upped again in trip

|21 Apr 18||Newbury||1m GS||43yMd||9-5||1/15||He's Amazing (4½L)||11/1||-||95|
Second string for Aidan O'Brien, second to Kew Gardens in the Queen's Vase back in June. Disappointing in a Group 3 at the Curragh since and will struggle to reverse terms with Kew Gardens, even with this stiffer likely suiting him.
More is needed but promises to be well suited by a thorough test at this trip

|23 Apr 18||Navan||1m 2f Y/Sft||3yMd||9-5 t1||2/11||Coeur Sublime (hd)||7/2||-||80|
Looked a hugely promising sort last campaign but hasn't quite gone forward this year, never a threat in the Great Voltigeur at York last time. Has shaped as though he'd improve for this sort of trip, plenty to prove now though.
Pedigree provides further hope that this step up in trip will suit but something to prove

|28 Oct 17||Doncaster||1m GS||2yG1||9-1||3/12||Saxon Warrior (2¾L)||10/1||108||112|
Just the one real effort of note this campaign, finishing third in the Dante Stakes at York. Even that form isn't enough to see him as a threat here and he's beaten just one rival home in two group contests since.
Even his best form, a third in the Dante at York in May, leaves him with a lot to find

|26 Sep 17||Tipperary||7.5f Sft/Hy||2yMd||9-5||1/7||Spanish Point (hd)||9/1||-||88|
Potential star in the making, unbeaten in three starts. She blasted clear to win a Fillies' Listed race by ten lengths at York last month on the back of a long absence. Likely to have plenty more to come, will need to battle to beat Kew Gardens.
3 from 3; ran to high level when powering away to win 1m4f Listed race latest

|20 Apr 18||Newbury||1m 2f GS||43yMd||9-0||1/14||Arcadian Cat (6L)||7/2J||-||99|
Headed in the final stride of the Lillie Langtry at Glorious Goodwood in August, winning a three-runner Group 3 at the same venue three weeks later. This is obviously far tougher and should find herself outclassed.
Won with something in hand in three-runner Group 3 at Goodwood (1m6f); this is harder
