Out Do was well beaten in this last year but won it in 2015 and arrives on the back of success in the Wokingham at Ascot. He should be in the mix once again but the 2014 winner, TAKE COVER, is preferred. The latter has been competing at the highest level and while failing to figure in the King’s Stand last time, he still finished ahead of Cotai Glory, Goldream and Final Venture. Judicial is a progressive sprinter bidding for a four-timer on the back of an easy success at Beverley on his latest start while Kyllang Rock went close in Listed company here in May and Copper Knight won a decent handicap over track and trip in the same month.
