Henry Candy has his stable firing on all cylinders and it's about time Faure Island was getting his head in front, though he's shown his best form so far in sprint races. Sonnetation is proven over the trip, however, and is a previous course and distance winner. However, he prefers a very fast surface and won't get that today. Be Seeing You took a step backwards last time, as did Rolling Dice, so we'll take a chance on RAKAAN returning to form. He's been taking on better opposition this year and was badly hampered last time at Goodwood. Know Your Name looks best of the rest.
