Verdict

UK raiders have won four of the past five renewals and are well represented this year. None of the previous winners were three-year-olds, however, so Morawij will do well to follow up his Listed win at Sandown a fortnight ago. Move In Time makes more appeal as he had Medicean Man behind when seventh in the Kings' Stand at Ascot last time and will find this easier, but the home team are fancied to come good this time in the shape of SLADE POWER. The latter finished a head of Maarek in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee at last week's Ascot and beat Parliament Square, Russian Soul and Antious when a close-up third to Hitchens over course and distance in May. Ed Lynam's sprinter is fancied to come out best with a similar effort today.
