      Verdict

      Qanan tries to follow up his victory off a 6lb higher mark but Kikonga could be interesting dropped in trip and Pasaka Boy has twice gone close at Epsom recently, though he was behind ENOBLED at Newbury in July on identical terms. Sir Michael Stoute's charge was readily outpaced by Don't Stare in a classified stakes at Doncaster last month but the ground that day was softer than ideal and he might be worth one more chance. The stable also run the unexposed three-year-old Shama while Red Runaway is in good form. Old Nanton ran a cracker when sixth in the Silver Cambridgeshire here a couple of weeks ago and he makes most appeal of the remainder.
