An injury to Al Kazeem has robbed this race of some of its strength in depth and it’s even poorer for the absence of California Chrome, who has been ruled out due to a foot abscess. That could well leave the way for last year’s Champion Stakes third FREE EAGLE to make a winning return to action after an absence of 242 days. That would be a big negative ordinarily but his master trainer Dermot Weld is adept at preparing horses for the big occasion and the colt has shown he can go well fresh by winning on both previous seasonal reappearances.

That is is factored into his price of 3/1 of course and punters looking for some each-way value should consider Gallic raider Gailo Cop (12/1 Sky Bet), who earned the title of France’s highest-rated three-year-old last season and made a very satisfactory return when chasing home Solow in the Prix d’Ispahan. That looks even better form after that horse’s win in Tuesday’s Queen Anne.
