Verdict

The Hannon yard has won three of the last four and is doubly represented here. Dougal easily landed a Brighton maiden before sharing the spoils with Justice Good here in May and the winner has done the form no harm subsequently. IVAWOOD started odds-on for his racecourse debut at Sandown and those who supported him were never in danger of losing their money. He was very impressive and the runner-up has scored since so the form looks strong enough for this. The Great War went to Royal Ascot as an odds-on chance for the Norfolk Stakes but didn't pick up when asked. He may do better over this extra furlong but will need to in this company and there's no reason to believe he'll reverse form with runner-up Mind Of Madness, whose trainer won this in 2011. Jungle Cat ran a superb race behind The Wow Signal in the Coventry Stakes and has the beating of Angelic Lord on that run while Mubtaghaa was staying on strongly at the finish of the Windsor Castle Stakes so today's longer trip is definitely in his favour. Belardo is obviously well regarded as he was an odds-on chance for his debut at Yarmouth and produced an impressive display.
