Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Stayed on gamely to land the Group 2 Queen’s Vase in June; appreciated the testing ground. Not disgraced in his two subsequent starts, including in a Group 1 at Goodwood latest, but he looks held by Sir Dragonet on their Chester running.
Evidently exposed as being below Group 1 standard and others here are preferred

Il Paradiso p
J: P B Beggy
T: A P O'Brien
Impressive twelve-length winner of a two-mile Curragh handicap on his penultimate start and he built on that when a close third in the Group 2 Lonsdale Cup last time. Respected back against his fellow three-year-olds, but this trip looks on the sharp side.
Good York third to Stradivarius; form claims; trip should be fine

Unbeaten from his four starts to date, landing the Group 2 Great Voltigeur last time out. That form does look slightly open to question, however, and this is by far his toughest assignment to date. Looks short enough in the market for what he has achieved.
Won all four starts in this first season on the track, last time in Group 2; should stay

Had Constantinople behind when landing the Group 3 Gordon Stakes at Glorious Goodwood. That rival reversed the form at York afterwards, however, and he has plenty of ground to make up with Logician on that running; up against it.
Smart but needs to find a few pounds to mix it with the best of these

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Impressive eight-length winner of the Chester Vase in May; Dashing Willoughby behind. Close fifth in the Derby on just his third start and his latest run in a Group 3 at the Curragh should have blown away any cobwebs; the one to beat.
Run probably needed last time; big chance on his easy Chester Vase win or close Derby 5th

Sir Ron Priestley
J: Franny Norton
T: Mark Johnston
Upwardly mobile sort who has won five of his six starts so far this year; sole defeat coming on unsuitably soft ground. Took the step up into pattern company in his stride when landing a Goodwood Group 3 latest, but this is a whole new ballgame.
All-the-way win in Group 3 at Goodwood (1m6f); still improving but this is much tougher

Technician
J: Rob Hornby
T: Martyn Meade
Returned to winning ways in the Group 3 Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury last time out. Had conditions to suit that day, however, and this quicker ground is a notable concern. Expected to find at least a couple of these rivals too strong.
Place chance on career-best latest 1m5f Group 3 win; trip should suit

Close third behind subsequent 2000 Guineas winner Magna Grecia in the Racing Post Trophy here last October. Not at that level in his six starts so far this campaign though, and he rates a likely pacemaker here for his two stablemates.
Listed winner in May but that form and his other efforts this season aren't good enough
