Verdict

Starspangledbanner won the July Cup in 2010 and was having only his second outing since when runner-up at the Curragh last month. He should stay this longer trip and will be in the firing-line if doing so. Mashoora won a Group 3 over C&D but couldn't cope with Elusive Kate in the Prix Rothschild last time. She should figure along with the progressive Blue Soave who won his first Group race over track and trip on his latest start. Gordon Lord Byron will appreciate the return to 7f having been caught close home by Society Rock in a Group 1 sprint last time and Penitent has every chance if on one of his going days. However, in a wide-open contest Uwe Stoltefuss looks to have laid out SOMMERABEND for this having run well on his belated seasonal return behind Blue Soave here last month. A repeat of last year's second to Cityscape at Saint-Cloud should see him go very close.
