Sir Michael Stoute and Ryan Moore link up with the race favourite Mirage Dancer Horseform and with both having been right among the winners in recent times they come here making plenty of appeal.

Assessed Prices: Mirage Dancer $2.80; Barsanti $4.50; Laraaib $6.50.


Racing and Sports' Priceline fancies the Moore/Stoute combination to come out on top and more so than the early betting which makes Mirage Dancer closer to a 5/2 chance.

Mirage Dancer had no luck at Royal Ascot, missing a run that looked set to open up for him, and his momentum was shot from there.

That was a hot race and looks a key pointer to this with Laraaib and Muntahaa both coming through it en route to Newmarket.

Laraaib had little luck there but when he had the run of things at Sandown he was good enough to run second to Poet's Word which reads well. He make go back to front-running tactics here which would make him a good chance.

Barsanti was safely held at bay in the Hardwicke at Royal Ascot but had knocked off Mirage Dancer prior to that and he's fairly reliable. That formline makes him the biggest threat again.
