Three-year-olds have taken the last four renewals and recent Newmarket winner Dinkum Diamond would fit the bill if not for his high draw. Captain Dunne flew home at Epsom in June but is another compromised by a high stall number, while Tangerine Trees' penalty for his victory in April's Palace House Stakes at HQ looks to have spoilt his chance. The latter finished a length behind GROUP THERAPY in the Temple Stakes back in May and David Barron's sprinter had three of today's rivals behind when a highly creditable third to Masamah in the Group 2 King George Stakes at Goodwood last month. A repeat of that run should be good enough here and he's preferred to the progressive filly Duchess Dora, who went close at Ascot three weeks ago when third to Dungannon.
