    In depth


    Sir Michael Stoute has won two of the last four renewals and Bay Bridge has leading claims. He returned an impressive winner of the Brigadier Gerard at Sandown though the likely fast ground adds a note of caution. Japanese raider Shahryar drops down in trip having won the Sheema Classic at Meydan in March while Lord North dead-heated for first in the Dubai Turf before beaten at the Curragh last month behind runner-up STATE OF REST (NAP). The latter’s challenge came too late on that occasion but Joseph O’Brien’s colt has won at the highest level in North America, Australia and France and gets the vote in this. The French mare Grand Glory won a Group 1 at Deauville last year and is unbeaten in lower grade races so far this season.
