JUICESTORM VERDICT: ACCIDENTAL AGENT (e/w) was only just touched off in this race last season (2nd) and I think can go well again. He’s run respectably this term at Ascot and Windsor, while with those runs under it’s belt should be spot-on for this today. The Hannon yard have a top record in the race so their runners – Beat Le Bon and MOTAKHAYYEL are others to note – especially the latter. This 4 year-old won the Buckingham Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot two runs ago and followed that up with a nice win at HQ last time. He’s up from a handicap and into a Group race for the first time but is clearly a very progressive sort that can go well for a yard that like to target this contest. The Stoute runner Regal Reality is the top-rated in the field and has to be respected in this grade and also sports the first-time visor, which is an interesting move. Duke Of Hazzard is the final horse to mention – he ran into the classy Space Blues at Goodwood last time out in a G2 but should be much more at home in this grade and should also be better over this longer trip (up to 1m from 7f).
