Shavansky won last year's renewal at 33/1 and arrives in good form this time round having scored over a longer trip here on his latest start. Loving Spirit, George Guru and Chapter And Verse were among those who finished behind Rod Millman's charge last year. Solar Deity is capable at this level and goes well fresh while Graphic and Postscript can also be given a chance. Nazreef and Emilio Largo finished well behind EHTEDAAM when the latter beat Seek Again over track and trip recently. John Gosden's colt is weighted to reverse running but the top weight appeared to win a shade cosily and Saeed Bin Suroor's progressive charge can go in again.
