SILVER RANGER is comfortably the best of those with experience as though she was a beaten favourite behind Bossy Guest at York that could turn out to be smart form. She gets the vote though there are several interesting newcomers entered including Godolphin's Classic Collection, though he's by Cape Cross out of a 1m2f winner so should do better over further. Azraff is the fourth foal of a mare whose previous three all won including two over the minimum trip so he's definitely one to watch while Heartbreak Hero is a half-brother to four winners. Goring may do best of the remainder.
