Oxted looks obvious danger on the pick last season form ,including winning G1 July Cup ,though was turned over when odds on favourite in Abernant stakes at Newmarket last time .Should be thereabouts ,though his best form has been on sounder surface .

Epsom Oaks fancy Teona looks the main danger ,after bolting up in maiden on All Weather at Newcastle in November Looks open to plenty improvement after just two starts ,though odds around 6-4 look short enough on her first start on turf, after near 6 month absence .

Thunder Moon looks the biggest danger ,having shown good turn of foot to win National Stakes in good style last season .This faster ground should suit better ,having struggled on soft ground in Dewhurst at Newmarket in October .

Disappointing turn out for Easter Classic with just 6 runners  going to post .The Andrew Balding trained BANGKOK looks the class act here ,after winning Winter Derby trial over C&D at Lingfield in February.No show in Saudi Cup last time behind Missriff ,though returns to much more suitable level here.Has decent record at Lingfield ,including when breaking course record over C&D last season.Odds above 4-5 look value .

G1 winner Space Blues is 7lb clear on official ratings,winning his last five starts ,including winning the turf Sprint at Riyaad over 6.5 furlongs in Feb ,though there is slight question mark about this shorter trip .Yet to win over 6 furlongs .Clearly the one to beat on official ratings ,though odds around 6-4 look short .

A.P O,Briens only runner on card Mogul can't be ruled out after winning Hong Kong Vase in December at Sha Tin, though that wasn't the strongest group one.Had previously only finished fifth in Breeders cup turf  at Keenland .
