Royal Rock and RED JAZZ share top rating but the former has a penalty for October's Group 3 victory at Ascot. The latter arrives on the back of a Listed win over C&D and his second to Strong Suit in the Lennox Stakes at Goodwood last July is the best piece of form on offer. Charlie Hills' charge is fancied to confirm latest running with Majestic Myles and go in again. Pastoral Player should be thereabouts though he's yet to win outside of handicap company while this is a lot tougher than the Group 3 at the Curragh that Irish raider Gossamer Seed won last month. Doncaster Rover is capable of going close at this level but hasn't shown his best since scoring at York in August.
