Verdict

TULLIUS won a similar contest by over three lengths at Sandown in April. A couple of good efforts in Group 1 company have followed and he's taken to land this confirming latest running in the Queen Anne at Ascot with Producer and Mull Of Killough in the process. The latter and Guest Of Honour filled the placed in last year's renewal with Trumpet Major well beaten but Long John may prove a bigger threat. He won a Group 3 at Meydan in March and returns from a lay-off while Graphic finished ahead of Highland Knight at Epsom before winning in France last week and should also go well. Empire Storm, The Rectifier and Zambucca look up against it on today's terms.
