VISCOUNT NELSON comes out best at the weights and has been given plenty of time to recover from an abortive trip to the States in June. He easily landed a Listed race on this ground at the Curragh earlier and can return to winning ways back on home soil. The danger may be stablemate Look At Me, who gets plenty of weight and makes a swift reappearance after finishing second over 1m1f in this grade at the Curragh last weekend. Mutahadee was third to Banimpire when upped to this distance in the Group 2 Royal Whip last time and has scope for further improvement. He also warrants a second look but Galileo's Choice probably needs further nowadays.
