Connections will be hoping the forecast ground is no hindrance to BOITE as he has the best piece of form by far. Beaten only a nose by Feel Like Dancing at Newbury last month, Peter Chapple-Hyam's colt is the one to beat on that form. The latter is trained by John Gosden and he runs the newcomer Remote in this while Kattaf is another debutant to note for any support in the betting. Lingfield third Perpetual Ambition has some catching up to do to match the selection but is still preferred to Marsh Dragon and Mojave Desert.
