13:50 – Real World

Real World has won his last two starts like a potential Group 1 performer and he should prove too good for his rivals. Few horses win Royal Ascot handicaps in the style Real World took the Royal Hunt Cup and he then backed that up at Newbury with an impressive success at listed level. Real World showed a good turn of foot at Newbury and the strength he showed inside the final furlong suggests that he has an even bigger effort in his locker.

14:25 – Dhushan

Dhushan was unable to complete the hat-trick at Ascot last month but he still enhanced his reputation in defeat, going down by just half a length after conceding first run to the winner in a race that turned into a dash. Dhushan was not well placed given how things developed, but he made good late headway, shaping like a well-handicapped horse. He should be suited by this step up in trip and greater emphasis on stamina, and he can raise his game again.

15:00 – Space Blues

Space Blues won all four starts in Europe last season, including the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville. That is a much better piece of form than anything his rivals can boast and Space Blues showed enough at Goodwood last time to suggest that he remains capable of running up to that level. Space Blues was only fourth in his bid to win the Lennox Stakes for a second year running, but he was beaten just half a length and did well to get so close in a race that was run at a muddling gallop. He is the class act in the field and should prove too good for these rivals.

15:35 – Ilaraab

Ilaraab progressed rapidly last season, winning five in a row, and he posted an impressive victory in a mile-and-a-half handicap on his return here in May. It’s easy enough to overlook an underwhelming effort in the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot as he wasn’t ideally positioned and met trouble in running, and he is interesting back in handicap company. He shapes as if he’ll stay a mile and three-quarters so he could yet do better.

16:10 – Attagirl

Attagirl sets the standard based on her excellent second in the listed St Hugh’s Stakes at Newbury last week. She showed plenty of pace on her first start at five furlongs and was only headed in the final strides after kicking on a couple of furlongs from home. A reproduction of that sort of form might be enough to see her gain compensation here.

16:45 – Migration

Migration scored with plenty in hand at Goodwood last time and he looks up to defying an 8 lb rise in the weights. Migration had been a big eyecatcher on his return at Salisbury in June and built on that at Goodwood, picking up impressively off a steady pace and storming a couple of lengths clear inside the final furlong. He is still relatively lightly raced and has more to offer.

17:20 – Blind Beggar

Blind Beggar showed plenty of speed when third in a six-furlong handicap here last time and he should prove well suited by this drop in trip. He went through that contest like a well-handicapped sprinter, getting some seasoned rivals out of their comfort zone, and he should launch a bold bid at a course where he goes well. The booking of Joanna Mason in this apprentice handicap is a positive.
