DHAHABI already sounds like a Classic winner and he showed loads of promise when winning a Newmarket maiden on debut three Saturdays ago.

He missed the kick and James Doyle wasn’t too hard on this son of Frankel as he picked up nicely to score with plenty left. This is a much hotter race but he can repay some of the £3m it cost Godolphin to buy this close relative of superstar Golden Horn.

Guru was very green when getting up on the line to win over course and distance first time out. Adam Kirby didn’t pick up the whip that day so it was a smart effort. We know trip and track suit and John Gosden’s youngster should improve plenty for that experience.

Saint Lawrence has kept fancy company this season with the highlight coming when fourth in the Group 2 Superlative Stakes on the July course. He didn’t match that form at Ascot when the rattling going wasn’t ideal.

If the juice stays in the ground, William Bligh can’t be discounted. He relished some cut when scoring at Haydock and put in a fair effort at Goodwood when it was too quick for him.

Jumby and Francesco Guardi both scored on debut and have more to come on this hike in grade.

2.25

AFAAK ran a cracker when a close-up third in the Summer Mile at Glorious Goodwood last time. It was a return to form after a poor effort over further at York.

He kicked off the campaign with a decent seventh as he tried to defend his Royal Hunt Cup crown at Ascot. Charlie Hills’ hope likes pace on and should get one thanks to confirmed front-runners like King Carney and Overwrite.

Tempus looks the main danger coming back from ten months on the sidelines. Trainer Roger Charlton has been firing in the winners and this Kingman colt has been brought along slowly. He won at Haydock before a solid effort at Wolves and has much more to come.

The booking of Oisin Murphy by the shrewd connections of Kasbaan takes the eye. He didn’t get going at Ascot last week but is better than that.

Orbaan wasn’t helped by missing the kick when fourth at York 21 days ago after earlier winning nicely on the Knavesmire. This is just his fourth run for David O’Meara after leaving Andre Fabre and this trip is ideal.

Jahbath was hampered before finishing fourth at Haydock latest and has had a little nudge down the weights to make him competitive.

3.00

HUKUM was an impressive winner of the King George V handicap at Royal Ascot and can take this next step firmly in his stride.

He gets a handy weight allowance off the older runners but the way he stormed home over 1m4f suggests he’ll relish this longer trip. This is just his fourth run so there’s masses more to come.

Alignak looks tailor made for this stamina test after going down in a head-bobber for a Haydock Listed race. That effort came after two good wins on the sand and he’s another who looks capable of much better.

Stablemate Sextant went close  in the Cumberland Lodge Stakes when last seen in October. He could figure if fit.

Morando is a regular at Group level and will love any give underfoot. He was outclassed by Fanny Logan in the Hardwicke when last seen and has his sights lowered over a trip that suits.

Almania didn’t enjoy coming back in distance when held at Ascot and should do better for this stamina test. The first-time blinkers could spark his best form which would see him on the podium.

Tritonic was second in a Royal Ascot handicap before a good run at Hamilton latest. He could find more for this stiffer test.

3.35

GLORIOUS JOURNEY lived up to his name when winning this race cosily 12 months ago. He couldn’t handle Group 1 level at Longchamp after that but came back to form with a Dubai win and close third in valuable sprint out in Saudi Arabia.

He was very rusty after five months off in the Lennox Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and will be much more on it today.

Dream Of Dreams hit the post in the red-hot Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot last time. He was coming back from a break there and has wisely had a little rest since. That was over six furlongs but this trip is fine and he’s the big danger.

Threat has won his past two races in this grade including over this trip at Doncaster. He was outpaced in the July Cup last time and will be happier in this company.

Pierre Lapin looked a top-class as a juvenile but has been quiet on both outings this season including when pulling hard at Goodwood. It’s too early to write him off at the track where he won the Mill Reef Stakes.

Breathtaking Look needs more in this grade but is in good form and likes the trip. He could nick a place.

BOSS POWER was impressive when striking at Yarmouth last time. He loved stepping up to this sort of distance and didn’t have to hit top gear. It was a decent race for the track and he can handle this hike in grade for his in-form trainer.

Zuba has been knocking on the door in good company including when second here last time. He’s not won for a while but has his sights lowered and should be in the shake-up.

Knowing has some decent form over shorter and shapes as if his stamina will hold out. He was a solid third at Sandown when the door was slammed in his face when making a challenge. He goes off the same mark today which gives him every chance.

To Nathaniel landed a couple of all-weather wins earlier this season. His turf form has been modest but this is a real drop in class. The handicapper has given John Gosden’s runner a little help too.

Stablemate Indigo Lake has blinkers on for the first time after looking an awkward ride. They could bring improvement.

2.40

THERE was lots to like about the way KARIBANA won over course and distance two Saturdays ago. There were only six runners but he had to sit and suffer until the gap opened in the closing stages.

He had enough pace to zip right through it for a comfortable win in the end. He stays in the same class and a 6lb rise in the weights look fair for this progressive colt.

Broughtons Gold clocked a good time when scoring at Windsor over six furlongs. He has winning form over this trip too and looks the main threat if able to repeat that.

Black Caspian has been in good form at York with a win followed by a close-up fourth on the Knavesmire. He has really improved since tackling this distance and could have more to come. He likes to go from the front and those tactics often pay dividends on the July course.

Marco Ghiani is one of the better 5lb claimers and he keeps the ride on Dashing Roger after winning at Yarmouth. That was over a mile but he has enough pace to cope with the distance drop. This is tougher company but he has place claims.

3.15

CASE KEY has an amazing record in this race with two wins and a third so Michael Appleby clearly builds his entire campaign around it.

He’s in solid form this season with a win at Leicester followed by a close second at Yarmouth last time. His mark is helped by capable claimer Angus Villiers taking 5lb off and we know trip and track are perfect.

Endowed looks the biggest danger for Richard Hannon. He did well as a juvenile last season and has had a breathing op since his modest run at Chelmsford in June. A return to his best would put him right there.

Clareyblue comes into this after two good efforts at York over five furlongs. He’s at home tackling this longer trip and won’t be far away.

Rock Boy Grey didn’t get home over further in fair company at Ascot last month. He was beaten a neck over this trip at Newbury before that so can’t be ignored.

My Style came back to form with a close second at Bath. He’s still a maiden but could figure again.
