Each of these runners has tasted victory but we take BLUE MOOD to get the verdict on this occasion. After a slow start to the season, Saeed Bin Suroor's string have hit full stride and the daughter of Invincible Spirit made light work of her rivals over course and distance a fortnight ago. Fast was down the field in the Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot and Richard Hannon's filly now has questions to answer after disappointing badly at Windsor next time out. Scruffy Tramp scrambled home in a nursery, and while he carried topweight there, it won't be easy to give 4lb to today's rivals. Sunset Shore has already had six races this term and while she didn't get the clearest of runs on her most recent start, she appears to be up against it in this grade.
