BATTAASH (6/4) returns to action on Friday afternoon, with the superstar sprinter holding an entry in the King George Qatar Stakes at Goodwood for Charles Hills.
The son of Dark Angel has dominated this contest in recent years, claiming success in the last four renewals.
He was slightly underwhelming in the King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot and he does head to West Sussex with a bit to prove.
If Battaash is back to his best here, he’s clearly the one to beat in this contest.
DRAGON SYMBOL (7/2) has experienced his fair share of bad luck this season, but he could relish the return to the minimum distance here.
The Cable Bay colt was beaten by a nose in the Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock before being demoted to second in the Commonwealth Cup.
He found Starman just too good for him in the July Cup, finishing a length and a quarter behind his rival in second.
Archie Watson’s recruit claimed success on his sole start over five furlongs and he could be one to consider here.
ART POWER (8/1) has been fairly consistent in Group company this season, with Tim Easterby’s runner also being dropped back down in trip.
The Dark Angel colt has been running over six furlongs this season and he tackles the minimum trip for the first time since running in the Nunthorpe at York back in August.
He has claimed victory on his two of his three starts over this distance and the four-year-old should not be ruled out here.
GLASS SLIPPERS (10/1) makes her first start since claiming success at the Breeders’ Cup for Kevin Ryan, while Francois Rohaut’s SUESA (10/1) will aiming to bounce back after finishing eight in the Commonweath Cup at Royal Ascot.
ARECIBO (12/1) has fairly consistent in Group races this season for Robert Cowell and John Quinn’s LIBERTY BEACH (12/1) will relish a bit of cut in the ground here.
Stablemate KEEP BUSY (22/1) finished a far from disgraced fifth in the King’s Stands Stakes at odds of 50/1, while Ismail Mohammed’s GOOD EFFORT (50/1) will need to show improvement after finishing last of 19 runners in the July Cup earlier in the month.
UBETTABELIEVEIT (66/1) has been disappointing on his first two starts this season for Nigel Tinkler and David Griffiths’ ORNATE (80/1) could feature after running in a 5f handicap on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood on Tuesday.
Andrew Balding’s STONE OF DESTINY (80/1) and Scott Dixon’s ZARGUN (100/1) complete the line-up.
