HEERAT made all to win here in April, and while handicaps are now out of the question off his current BHA rating, he can gain revenge for a recent near miss at York. Krypton Factor looked useful when trained by Sir Mark Prescott, and he's gone on to win a Group 1 in Dubai for his current trainer. Despite that line of form, he was allowed to go off at 25/1 for the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot and he finished a commendable third. Hamza was among that field and Kevin Ryan's gelding will attempt to confirm Beverley form with our selection. Ninjago looks smart and has often shouldered big weights in valuable handicaps. Connections will be hoping that he will not experience some of the crowding issues that have compromised his chances in that sphere. Bettolle makes a debut for Marco Botti and is a Group 3 winner in Italy. Regrettably the quality of those events has declined greatly in recent years and she faces no easy task in attempting to concede weight all around.
