TQ VERDICT: Some classy sprinters on show here, but this looks a good chance for the 120-rated STARMAN – to get back to winning ways and land his second Group One. He was last seen a close third in the Maurice de Gheest in France and prior to that won the July Stakes well at HQ. He’s the clear top-rated in the field and seems to act well on all ground, so his form of this season looks rock solid and a repeat of either of his last two runs should be good enough. Creative Force was 2 lengths behind the selection at Newmarket in July so shouldn’t be far away again, while Art Power was fourth behind Starman in the July Stakes – beaten just 1 ¾ lengths – and is another that should be in the mix. But GLEN SHIEL (e/w), seems to like this time of year and was a fair second in this race 12 months ago too. The ground is okay and being rated 116 doesn’t have too much ground to find with the selection in a race that could be decided by a split decision in-running – regular pilot, Hollie Doyle, rides.
