Formscan - MALJOOM is a fascinating contender on his return from a long layoff. William Haggas' colt was unlucky when denied a clear run in the 2022 St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot, eventually storming home to finish a close-up fourth. He would take some stopping on that level of performance so his fitness might be worth chancing. Chindit completed a quickfire double when hanging on to defy top weight in a Listed event at Sandown last week and must enter calculations, while last year's winner Mutasaabeq always merits respect at this venue.
