The absence of Epsom hero Pour Moi takes little away from this as the four who followed him home, plus the disappointing Seville, renew rivalry. CARLTON HOUSE was considered by many to be unlucky and the fact that he had an interrupted preparation and lost a shoe during the race won't have helped. He appeared to have been brought with a winning run at the two furlong mark but he couldn't get past Treasure House and there's no guarantee he'll do that here, especially as Memphis Tennessee is once again likely to blaze a trail and may not give way so easily this time. Treasure Beach's victory over Nathaniel in the Chester Vase has been well boosted while the Dante form of Carlton House has also been boosted by the success of Derby flop Pisco Sour at Royal Ascot. Native Khan, who finished fifth at Epsom, probably has more to give while Seville ran no sort of race and is very much better than that. In a fascinating renewal, The Queen's colt is taken to prove himself the best three-year-old colt outside of France and end the Ballydoyle domination.
