Verdict

Steps will need luck in-running from stall one as he has to arrive late on the scene but he ran a cracker in the King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot after being squeezed out at the start. He can reverse that running with gallant second Stepper Point and should again beat Green Door and Rex Imperator but fifth AHTOUG almost certainly needed that run, his first since March, and looks the one to beat on past form. Extortionist was just beaten in this grade at the Curragh last week and will be a threat on that form, though was well beaten behind Wind Fire, Hay Chewed and One Chance in a Listed race here three weeks ago. Shamshon beat One Chance at York before fading over 6f at Haydock while Kingsgate Native has done nothing wrong this year in exalted company, though has only won once since 2010. Dinkum Diamond has done better this year but looks held on the form book.
