Comment: Has made great strides this year, taking record for Mark Johnston to 8-9 when shading tight finish at Glorious Goodwood. 4 lb penalty unlikely to prevent another prominent showing.

Comment: Cesarewitch and Northumberland Plate winner who added another valuable prize to his CV when taking Marsh Cup at Newbury last month. Another 6 lb higher but still feared given his big handicap record.

Comment: Smart listed/Group 3 winner for Brian Meehan. Has shown he retains all his ability when placed in C&D listed/Group 3 for new yard this term and this has presumably always been the main target.

Comment: Very much caught the eye when short-head second in Duke of Edinburgh on Royal Ascot return and perhaps found the run coming too soon when well behind King's Advice at Newmarket since. Can bounce back.

Comment: Placed twice in Melbourne Cup. Possibly not quite the force of old as a 9-y-o but he was a fair third to Cleonte on Royal Ascot return and made the most of a good opportunity at Killarney latest.

King's Advice
15/2
John Gosden sent out the 1-2 last year and holds a strong hand again courtesy of BEN VRACKIE and Weekender, who was second 12 months ago. The former may well have found his latest Newmarket run coming too soon on the back of his excellent Royal Ascot reappearance and is well worth another chance. King's Advice is a must for the shortlist, while Withhold's big handicap record merits him respect.

RACE HINTS
Pace Forecast
Very Strong
Draw Bias
Against Low
Specific Place Hint: Of those forecasted with a better chance, Weekender and Dramatic Queen could be the most susceptible in a race in which competition for the lead looks plentiful: A strong early pace seems highly likely. Ben Vrackie and Desert Skyline could be suited by being ridden further from the pace.
Individual Price Hint: King's Advice traded at more than 10 times BSP twice when winning during its last 5 starts: Ben Vrackie traded at 10% or less of BSP twice on its last 5 starts.
