Charlie Appleby's Flying Honours was a winner at the same level last season in the Zetland Stakes at Newmarket.

Although it's a small field, they all have live chances, especially with most of them handling heavy ground conditions but Arrest for John & Thady Gosden looks the one to beat.

This on debut last year at Sandown over 7f behind the exciting Nostrum, he then stepped up to a mile at Sandown and got off the mark beating Desert Order close home.

Then sent to Ffos Las to have a prep run before heading over to France he confronted soft in the going for the first time and still went on to bolt up, with the second and third since franking the form.

Arrest himself gave that form line a boost when last seen stepping up to 1m2f in France on heavy ground and finishing a head second to Dubai Mile for Charlie Johnston.
