Molecomb Stakes winner BROWN SUGAR wasn't disgraced when third to No Nay Never in the Group 1 Prix Morny at Deauville last time. Richard Hannon's colt can return to winning ways in this confirming latest running with stablemate Anticipation and Godolphin's Figure Of Speech in the process. Another Godolphin runner in Brave Boy may prove a bigger threat as he steps up in class having won a novice race at Nottingham in good style last month. Hot Streak should also figure after picking up a Listed event at York a fortnight ago and he's preferred to Bahamian Heights who won a handicap, also at York, on his latest start.
