Form & Verdict
This is a very tough race in which to snap a 24-race losing run and this hold-up horse will need lots of luck from his inside draw, which he didn't enjoy when sixth last year; however, he should enjoy a ground-saving trip and has been running well this summer; each-way possible if finding the gaps.

Has gone close on his last three starts, off this mark at York two runs ago (1m, good to firm; behind Eilean Dubh) and off 3lb higher back at York last Friday (1m, good to firm; four runners); this is more competitive but he's in good form and should enjoy the run of the race from stall one.

Has a wide draw and hasn't been at the top of his game the last twice, but he was previously a good third of 29 at Royal Ascot and runs off the same mark as when runner-up in this race last year; won here earlier last season, so he likes Goodwood, and no surprise if he is in the mix.

Below best on last few starts (reportedly lost his action when tailed off latest) and this hold-up horse is a hostage to fortune, having failed to enjoy a clear passage on his three previous runs in the Golden Mile; however, Goodwood brings out the best in him and his last two attempts in this race have yielded fine thirds, so he could bounce back to form and go very close if getting the breaks; wide draw doesn't matter as he'll be dropped in anyway.

Form & Verdict
3yo who was a front-running third of 30 in the Britannia at Royal Ascot (1m, good to firm) and, after an awkward start, did well to come from the back to win at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) three weeks ago; his very wide draw could make things tough but he's on the upgrade and could have a say.

2020 John Smith's Cup winner (1m2f) who has been reinvented as a miler this season, finishing fifth in the Royal Hunt Cup and winning at Sandown most recently (beating Checkandchallenge who is due to run at 2.25); carries a 3lb penalty and can give another good account.

Form & Verdict
4yo who made his debut in May and, after two minor wins on turf (7f/1m, good), he made it 3-3 when comfortably landing a six-runner handicap at Newcastle (1m, AW) last month; 6lb higher in a much better race here and his wide draw is a worry, but it remains to be seen where his limitations lie.

Form & Verdict
The return of cheekpieces could be a plus on this second start of the season, as he showed career-best form to make all at York last October when they were applied for the first time; however, this 6yo front-runner will need to be better than ever and the widest draw makes things tough.
