Monsieur Joe has been a credit to his connections and he should be capable of running another big race on the Knavesmire but KINGSGATE NATIVE can roll back the years here. The nine-year-old has shown unbelievable levels of constitution to hold his form for so long and having gone down to honourable defeat in three Group contests this term, he can take advantage of this significant drop in grade. Eton Rifles and Mirza are capable performers though both would be suited by plenty of rain arriving ahead of the meeting. That comments equally applies to Meccas Angel, who confirmed that she'd trained on with a fair performance in Listed company at Maisons-Lafitte. York Glory has been below par this term although the former course and distance winner isn't one to rule out if the market speaks positively. G Force is a colt of considerable potential and this appears to be a watershed moment for David O'Meara's three-year-old.
