Leg 1: 2:30 Ascot -John Gosden's Remarkable won well in first-time blinkers at Southwell on his reappearance and followed up at Doncaster the following month. He was far from disgraced when second to Log Out Island in May and looks sure to appreciate the step back up in trip today. The unbeaten Castle Harbour is respected and is likely to be popular, as is Thikriyaat, who has a similar profile, having won all three of his starts to date. However, with the ground in his favour, it might be worth giving another chance to Mick Channon's Scrutineer who did too much too soon when well-backed at Epsom last time.
Leg 2: 3:05 Ascot - The ground is an unknown for Wesley Ward's Lady Aurelia, however she impressed with the manner of victory on her debut at Keeneland and if her trainer allows her to take her chance on this ground, then it's worth taking the hint. Mark Johnston's Camargue is respected, as he should have a good handle on the juvenile form this season, but Tom Dascombe's Kachess was well-backed ahead of her winning debut at Goodwood and she looks likely to handle this softer ground judging by her breeding.
Leg 3: 3:40 Ascot - Saeed bin Suroor's Always Smile is yet to prove herself on ground like this but she should probably still be unbeaten and she rates the value call to defeat the fellow-Godolphin owned Usherette. Always Smile hung badly when beaten a nose in the Sandringham at this meeting last season but looked as good as ever when winning on her reappearance at York last month. John Gosden's Jazzi Top, with the emphasis on stamina, could be the best of the rest.
Leg 4: 4:45 Uttoxeter - Not much between a handful of these on Timeform ratings, however Tony Carroll's Jester Jet just comes out on top and she gets the vote. Though still a maiden, Jester Jet was third in a better race at Aintree last time out and a repeat of that effort might be enough to win this. Tim Vaughan's Tara Mac and John Flint's Bernisdale are most feared, with the latter having shown improved form when winning a big-field event at Newton Abbot last time.
Leg 5: 5:00 Ascot - Another John Gosden runner, GM Hopkins, is 11 lb higher than when winning this race last year but he handles this ground well and needs to be included accordingly. The second against the field is Brian Ellison's Balty Boys, who was an unlucky fourth in this race last year (won his race on the near side) and looks to have been teed up nicely for it once again. Robert Eddery's Donncha caught the eye when fifth behind Always Smile at York and has run well at this track before, including when third in the International Stakes over 7f last July.
Leg 6: 5:35 Ascot - In what is a recurring theme, it's another John Gosden runner who gets the nod. Persuasive looked a smart filly when winning at Goodwood on her reappearance, and, having followed up since at Crayford, is expected to take her winning sequence to four. The Kyllachy filly should handle the ground and an 8 lb rise for her latest win might not be enough to stop her winning again. Mise En Rose, Dolce Strega and Diploma are all respected, however the second selection is Czabo. Fourth in the Irish 1000 Guineas, Mick Channon's filly looks to have ideal ground conditions here and a bold bid is expected.
