Timeform Daily: Lennox Stakes, Tuesday, Goodwood 15:10

Goodwood is the venue of some top-quality action this week.

Timeform offer a runner-by-runner guide to the Lennox Stakes on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood...

Chachamaidee has looked better than ever in her 2 runs this campaign

Edinburgh Knight has produced fine runner-up efforts last 2 starts, splitting Libranno and Majestic Myles in Group 3 at Newmarket on first occasion. Ran poorly in 6f Stewards' Cup on sole previous outing at Goodwood.

Firebeam is a progressive gelding who ended 2011 with comfortable success in minor event at Haydock. Good second there on reappearance and not disgraced in 6f Group 3 at Newbury last time. Up in class.

Libranno had the run of things when beating Edinburgh Knight and Majestic Myles narrowly in 7f Group 3 Criterion last time. Chance if allowed to dictate again, but was only fourth in this race 12 months ago.

Mac Love has been a grand servant down years. Not quite the force of old, but showed he still has something to offer when third in Diomed Stakes at Epsom last time. This tougher still, for all he goes well here.

Majestic Myles was a good third in Group 3 Criterion before landing a listed race at Chester (for second year running) in mid-July. Only seventh in this race 12 months ago, and likely to find others stronger again.

Chachamaidee is a smart sort who won at York and Goodwood (Oak Tree Stakes) in 2011. Successful return in Group 3 at Lingfield and arguably unlucky when beaten only a neck after slow start in Royal Ascot Group 2.

Foxtrot Romeo ran well on only his fourth career run when finding only Power too strong in Irish 2000 Guineas in May. That form not really worked out, and only sixth in Group 1 at Royal Ascot since, but down in grade now.

Timeform 1-2-3:
1. Chachamaidee
2. Foxtrot Romeo
3. Libranno

Timeform View: Chachamaidee has looked better than ever in her 2 runs this campaign, arguably unlucky when neck second to Joviality in Group 2 Windsor Forest at Royal Ascot last time, and compensation awaits. The 3-y-o milers look a less-than-vintage crop this year, but Foxtrot Romeo is the only runner in the field down in class, and he's a danger, with the drop in trip likely to suit.
