Lightly raced 3yo GALACTIC GLOW (nap) can cement his positive start for the David Menuisier yard by getting off the mark here. Recent heavy-ground Goodwood one-two Latent Heat and Dourado are likely to figure again under similar conditions, while Mabre did it nicely enough at Yarmouth last time to suggest he can make an impact in this higher grade.
The key issue is probably whether Headman settles, which he failed so conspicuously to do at Royal Ascot. He would have the edge if back to his best form but, if he pulls hard again, veteran AIR PILOT could be the one to take advantage. Freyja is third on the list, in career-best form but with stamina to prove.
Aspiration was a dynamic winner over 6f last week but the return to 7f against proven handicappers asks a bigger question. While MASKED IDENTITY had things go better for him than some of his rivals when winning on the July course on his latest turf start he gives the impression he can find a bit more yet under the conditions. Unexposed King’s Knight, in-form Hunni and Sir Titan are others to consider.
