Decorated Knight (Best price 7-1) was fourth to Arod at Ascot and stepped forward to score gamely over 10 furlongs at Goodwood and boasts strong each-way claims. He is also worth playing given the favourite maybe a late absentee.
Of his rivals, Examiner looks a major player on the back of his fine Newmarket effort last time, while Spring Offensive is another to love cut in the ground and he was only raised 3lb for his cosy Ripon win last time.
She needed all of the 10 furlongs that day to run down The Black Princess, but she coped well with the undulations and there looks a good deal more to come now she steps up in trip.
Favourite Minding already has a Classic win to her name this term courtesy of an imperious 1000 Guineas win at Newmarket. She has since finished runner-up in the Irish version, a creditable effort given she banged her head leaving the stalls, damaging a sinus in the process.
