Verdict

Pallasator finished just behind De Rigueur on his reappearance but won nicely at Ascot last time and looks the one to beat. Former stablemate Mutual Regard ran well for third in a Listed event at Leopardstown last month for new trainer Johnny Murtagh while Clever Cookie dead-heated for first over track and trip in May. The latter subsequently found 1m2f too short in the John Smith's Cup when Bold Sniper finished third. Retirement Plan and Mighty Yar represent last year's winning yard, though both have something to find with Pallasator, while course winner Wadi Al Hattawi has plenty of scope and Van Percy beat Havana Cooler at Goodwood last time. Luca Cumani will be disappointed the latter missed the cut for this but still has an outside chance with the lightly-raced SIR WALTER SCOTT. The former Ballydoyle inmate will have come on for last month's reappearance in Listed company and this longer trip should see the Galileo colt in a much better light.
