Smileswithhiseyes and Glacial Age may find this too competitive having won maidens on the all-weather recently. Jalaa made a winning debut at Leicester but never figured in the Chesham at Ascot in June and is having his first race since. Mujazif ended last year with a maiden victory at Newmarket and is held in high regard judged on entries in the 2000 Guineas and St James's Palace Stakes. The latter race is also a target for QUEENSBERRY RULES who scored in good style at Kempton earlier this month on his introduction. Ryan Moore keeps the winning partnership intact and the Teofilo colt is fancied to land this with normal progress.
