Looks very open to me with no standout horse. The likes of Sioux Nation, Invincible Army and Sands Of Mali are good horses but I'd be disapppointed if any of them turned out to be the best 6f sprinter in training. The market agrees as Equilateral is currently 9/2 favourite after hosing up in a little novice race at Doncaster and obviously 'could be anything', but a very similar, if not more impressive type, is Tabdeed who can be backed at 33/1 nrnb. Unbeaten in two starts, and highly impressive both times, travelling really well and quickening nicely. He is a proper bull of a horse and shoud love the stiff Ascot 6f on fast ground. Stable in great form too.
No idea if he is definitely running, he is in the Jersey Stakes too, but I'd have thought 10/1 was a more realistic price so have lumped on.
I’m hoping the reason they chose the Jersey becomes more obvious on Friday.
That's the reason they chose the Jersey.

One that took my eye is Eqtidaar of Michael Stoutes. Very impressive on debut at Nottingham. and a half brother to Massaat who finished 2nd in the Guineas. Possible he might be more a Commonwealth Cup type
Been nibbling at him since April at 25/1-40/1 and then a big bet at 16/1 once the decs came out.
