    In depth


    Goodwood third Ouzo is more than capable in this grade and should be thereabouts again. He finished ahead of Major Partnership, second here subsequently, when runner-up at Sandown in July but was behind Aerion Power when the latter was fourth in the Royal Hunt Cup here in June. Alrehb is best on the all-weather and Daysofourlives didn’t shown much on his belated reappearance but Bluelight Bay produced a career-best at Sandown last month. MAN OF EDEN has never won on Turf but has run some cracking races in defeat and his luck will surely change before the season is out.


    Major Partnership (IRE) 12-1 (9-13) Raced towards near side, chased winner throughout, kept on final furlong, always held, 2nd of 9, 3/4l behind Ghaly (10-0) at Ascot 1m hcp (2) gd in Jul.

    Ouzo 6-1 (9-6) Half reared start, held up in rear, switched left and headway over 2f out, 3rd and held inside final furlong, kept on, 3rd of 5, at Goodwood 1m hcp (2) sft in Aug.

    Alrehb (USA) 12-1 (9-9) Prominent, ridden over 1f out, weakened over 110 yards out, 8th of 11, 5 1/4l behind Island Bandit (8-9) at Sandown 1m hcp (3) gd in Aug.

    Bluelight Bay (IRE) 25-1 (9-4) In rear, switched left and headway on outer 2f out, ridden and edged right over 1f out, ran on, not trouble winner, 2nd of 11, 2l behind Island Bandit (8-9) at Sandown 1m hcp (3) gd in Aug.
