Marcus Tregoning has his team in good form (three winners from his last 11 runners) and it might be worth siding with Waqt to make light of a 13-month absence and build on the promise of his Goodwood debut second. Paradwys was well held starting out for new trainer Archie Watson last time, but this looks easier and there is a good chance she will provide the main threat. Mishari is another to consider.
African Beat made a solid start for new trainer Richard Hughes when three and a half lengths second at Wolverhampton a couple of weeks ago and could be the way to go tackling largely much more exposed rivals. Nabhan ran well over hurdles at Uttoxeter recently and figures on a career-low mark in this sphere, while the veteran Sunny Future is back to the mark he won off last autumn.
The majority of these are fully exposed and it may be worth siding with the lightly-raced Perla Blanca to improve past them on her return from a three-month break. Marcus Tregoning's filly should be suited by the longer trip and is preferred to fellow three-year-old Masterfilly, who can't have been right last time and has been freshened up since. Filament of Gold and Rowlestonerendezvu complete the shortlist.
