RACING AHEAD VERDICT: With two of the big midweek fancies – Ten Sovereigns and Advertise – ruled out of the race this gives a much more wide-open feel to this Group One.THE TIN MAN (e/w)was a good winner of the race last year and despite not having a great season so far can’t be discounted and if back on-song might be worth an each-way interest. He certainly won’t mind the softer ground and might just be worth giving one more chance too. Fairyland and the Charles Hills runner –Khaadem – are big players too, especially the later. This 3 year-old was a very easy winner of the Stewards’ Cup at Goodwood last time out and deserves to take his chance in this better race. He looks useful, but this is a huge rise in grade.Brando can go well too and is a proven CD winner here, plus runner-up in this race 12 months ago, while if you can forgive it’s last run, then Dream Of Dreams would enter the mix on his close second to Blue Point in the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot back in June. Finally, German raider –Waldfad – is turning into a consistent sprinter and shouldn’t be far away, but the other play here is going to be HELLO YOUMZAIN (e/w).This CD winner was beaten less than two lengths behind Advertise in the Commonwealth Cup, but I feel the softer ground and this track will suit better. James Doyle catches the eye in the saddle too, while with just 6 career runs should have more to come.
