Has landed this race on his seasonal reappearance for the past two years. In good form in Group 1 company when last seen in October. Warrants obvious respect this afternoon, but this race does look more competitive than recent renewals.
Has won this in each of the last 2 years; the one to beat as he bids for famous hat-trick

Returned from a long absence to land a handicap at Ascot in May; close second in the Wokingham Stakes back at that venue afterwards. Subsequently had his limitations exposed in two starts in stakes company, however, and he now has something to prove.
Four places behind Brando in the July Cup but lightly raced and could be more to come

Hot Recent Form Jockey - 9 wins from 28 in the last 14 days (32%)
Has so far failed to deliver on the promise he showed earlier in his career. Beaten favourite on his seasonal reappearance at Doncaster last month, and he often goes well fresh. Needs a clear career-best performance to trouble the best of these.
May be able to strike at this level at some point but has to find something extra today

Front-runner who made all to land a handicap over today’s course and distance last May; similar tactics saw him prevail in the Stewards’ Cup at Goodwood in August. A bold bid is anticipated here under what looks his optimum conditions.
Won Stewards' Cup off hefty mark of 111, but he's not the most consistent

Made winning stable debut at Kempton in January but up against it today

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Lightly-raced four-year-old making just the sixth start of his career today. Winner of a four-runner conditions race over this course and distance in November, but that success came on much softer ground. Others readily preferred here.
Plenty of promise during short career but has to go to the next level today

Gained one win from six starts for Sir Michael Stoute back in 2017. French Listed winner early last season, but he was out of sorts when last seen in September. Now in the care of David O’Meara, but just a watching brief is advised today.
David O'Meara does extremely well with French recruits; improvement needed from this one

Winner of a Group 3 at Newbury in July, but he has not been seen since finishing well down the field in a Group 2 back at that venue in August. Ran well fresh last year, but he is likely playing for each-way money at best in this company.
Group 3 winner in July; more needed here but his family tend to improve with age
