There's a huge prize up for grabs in this and it's no surprise that it's attracted a big entry, though Der Blaue Reiter is a likely absentee having been beaten in a Leicester seller on Tuesday. Ben Hall, sixth in the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood last time, has the highest official rating but the Hannon yard regularly farms these valuable sales races and field four here. COULSTY looks the pick of the weights ahead of the hat-trick-seeking Art Official on his second to Gimcrack winner Astaire at Newmarket and he was only beaten half-a-length in a competitive nursery at York last month when subsequent Baden Baden Listed winner Suzi's Connoisseur was behind. Zaraee and Tanzeel are relatively unexposed and should continue heading in the right direction while Khalice has got his act together with a couple of wins at Ripon and may improve past stablemates Foxy Clarets and Regiment. Azagal wasn't beaten far in the Lowther at York and could be well weighted on that form but Goodwood runner-up Rosso Corsa may need further.
