Verdict

Saeed Bin Suroor has saddled the winner of this five times in the last 10 years and is double-handed this time around. Prince Siegfried is on a hat-trick after wins at Epsom and Windsor but has a Group 3 penalty to carry, while Hunter's Light may struggle on the ground and Frankie's presence on board DEBUSSY suggests he's the pick of the Godolphin entries. He's been used as a pacemaker for some of his more exalted stable companions in many of his races this term but is a decent performer when allowed to run on his own merits, as he proved when third in last year's Champion Stakes. He won very easily at Chester 11 days ago and can follow up here. Measuring Time finished ahead of Opera Gal over C&D recently and can confirm that form while Mirror Lake runs her best races here and is back over her best trip. Distant Memories is preferred to Fallen Idol of the others as he will like the soft going.
