We analyse the last 10 renewals of the Betfair Summer Double International Stakes at Ascot on Saturday and pick out the key statistics.
A bad race for favourites but not a contest where the winners have been unfathomable with only Al Muheer returned at longer than 18-1.
Although none of them have won this season, Excellent Guest, Edinburgh Knight and Lightning Cloud all make plenty of appeal.
Last year's winner, Bronze Prince, has a poor run to overcome while Eton Forever ticks a number of the right boxes but may be a shade too high in the ratings off 109.
Following his good run at Newmarket, Paul d'Arcy's charge will be racing from the same perch as his rival in future and is taken to atone for his disappointing run over a mile in the Royal Hunt Cup.
Five winners have been rated between 99 and 106 suggesting this is a handicap in which class does come to the fore while his record over seven furlongs reads three wins, a second and a length fourth from five attempts at the trip.
