BEAST MODE landed a Newcastle maiden before being sent to Newmarket for the Group 2 Royal Lodge where he ran very well and wasn't beaten far so this should be within his capabilities. Thanksfortellingme has looked a smart prospect in his victories at Goodwood and Epsom and it will be a surprise if he's not in contention while Still On Top has been in fine form in very strong company since making a winning debut. Lazzam's form is on the all-weather but Chinoiseries was well supported at Chepstow and made an impressive start. Percy Street was a very easy winner of a maiden over the track and trip and is another to note in an interesting contest.
