My Freedom pulled much too hard on softer going at Ascot last time and is better than that. Capaill Liath returned to form over a mile here last month but has a bit to find to overturn earlier running with the Godolphin colt. White Frost is unbeaten in two starts this year and has similar going to when successful over C&D last time, though has gone up 6lb in the weights. Tuscania is edging closer and Robemaker got off the mark at Yarmouth last month. But we are going to give another chance to SEA SOLDIER, who may just have needed the run when third to White Frost here 15 days ago. He'd overturned the odds-on Kawsaaj at Warwick in June and doesn't look badly treated here on that form.
