TROPICAL SONG is hard to get away from in the opener. John Gosden's colt has been beaten by less than a length in his last three starts, including when odds-on at Kempton last time, but can make amends in this company. Pinarius never figured at Ascot last time but is better judged on his fifth at Salisbury before that and makes more appeal than Spanish Art and Hanga Roa. Amulet makes her racecourse debut and is probably best watched on this occasion.
