Verdict

Bronze Angel ran another credible race in the Buckingham Palace Stakes but he invariably looks vulnerable in a finish and we'll take ALFRED HUTCHINSON to post a surprise. Geoff Oldroyd's six-year-old does not have the greatest of strike rates on Turf but he takes his chance off a much lower mark than on artificial surfaces and he was far from disgraced in a Listed contest over course and distance in May. Richard Fahey is sure to have his runners primed for the Knavesmire so Dusky Queen makes plenty of appeal with Ryan Moore aboard. Spring Mile winner, Brae Hill has a very high draw to overcome while Awake My Soul returns from Italy and takes a massive drop in distance. The well-named Trail Blaze can get competitive at an early juncture and has obvious chances of making the frame whilst Navajo Chief reserves his best for this track and Tim Jarvis's seven-year-old is capable of giving another solid account.
