This is a race Sir Michael Stoute likes to win and the yard is double-handed this time. Voice Control is related to several winners but it's Inshaa who may prove the pick as he's a son of Dansili out of a 1m2f winner. The Hannon camp is also dually represented and Richard Hughes' presence on board Acaster Malbis suggests he may be more forward than Gibeon, who has a very smart middle-distance pedigree. Banditry is by Iffraaj out of a winning miler so should have plenty of pace, a remark that also applies to Emirates Skycargo, who is by the same sire. Godolphin also run HILLS AND DALES and he's by Acclamation out of a mare who has produced winners with her first three foals so he's handed the vote.
