Group 1 placed when trained in Hong Kong, he scored at Listed level over course and distance on his return to the U.K. No issues with faster going, joint top rated so needs plenty of consideration.
Won by just over 2l on stable debut over C&D last month (Raheen House 2nd); leading claims

Split decisions with Kelly’s Dino of late, that form right up there with the best of his career. Trip and ground are fine but he has plenty on his plate at the weights, would need a big personal best to get involved.
Has done very well for this yard but has something to find with the main players today

Landed the Old Newton Cup last weekend, the best run of his career. Yet to conclusively prove his stamina for this far and this comes up plenty quick enough after a hard race. Others make more appeal.
Progressive and won last Saturday's Old Newton Cup Handicap; has to go to next level today

No match for Gold Mount over course and distance on his 2019 debut. That was a superior effort to anything he produced in 2018, though he may not want the ground to be quite this fast. Place probably the best he can hope for.
Back to form when second to Gold Mount over C&D on stable debut; may build on that run

Solid efforts last summer in deeper company than this. Not close to that so far in 2019 despite a winning return, his best form has all come at twelve furlongs. Stays this trip but others appeal more.
Big player on last year's best Group-race form but hasn't hit the same heights this season

Lightly-raced for his age, he enjoys good to firm ground. Third in the Ebor over course and distance last summer, though he was behind Weekender there and is now eight pounds worse off. Hard to see him reversing that.
Admirable, progressive 8yo; can give another good account but something to find today

Shown a strong level of form in both visits here, most recently when runner-up in the Ebor. Impressive success at Chelmsford last time out, conditions ideal for him here. Joint top rated here, very strong claims on the prize.
Excellent 2nd off top weight over C&D in last year's Ebor; AW win latest; strong contender

Improved rapidly last season, rising thirty-eight pounds and claiming a win at this level. She has struggled badly in three starts so far this season, impossible to support at present until she returns to form.
Won Goodwood Group 3 last August but beat just two rivals; struggling for form this year

Verdict

The John Gosden-trained WEEKENDER, who was an excellent second off top weight in last year's Ebor, gets the nod ahead of Gold Mount.
