I can’t help ending up at Common Touch when looking at this race. He has been poor this year but is back down to a mark he has won of before. He has in the past on almost every occasion he has won , come back from poor runs to perform, which is what would be needed today. He also has blinkers re-fitted today and if they can spark a small revival maybe he can get involved at a huge price. 66/1 makes the rick worth taking.

Repeater looks too easily overlooked here after one poor run last time out. He was a real eye-catcher this year in the Northumberland plate when a fast finishing 3rd, and as he is a certainty to stay this trip his Each Value at huge odds is very tempting. He is possibly being readied for another tilt at the Doncaster Cup in September but at 66/1 I’m willing to take that risk.

Songcraft looks the value here at 11/1 with Coral. He was poor enough after a break last time out but that should have got him back to fitness after a very good Meydan this year. He is the highest rated in this race and it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if he were to get back to form here.

Bosatto is proven off this mark in this type of race and despite looking the second choice of the stable, that wouldn’t necessarily be much of a negative. His 4th in a similar but stronger race at Goodwood would put him rights in the firing line here with a decent 3lbs claimer on today. 28/1 is too big to ignore.
