Good turn out for Lennox Stakes with 14 declared for this group two 7f contest 
 
.Last years winner Space Blues ,will be popular for inform Charlie Appleby stable ,had some very useful form last season ,winning 4 out 4 ,including winning this race in style and landing group one Maurice de Gheest at Deauville in August ,though was disappointing on his last start in 6f G1 AL Quoz Sprint at Meydan in March ,only finishing 9th when short price favourite ,will be suited returning this longer trip and handles cut in the ground ,though odds around 9-4 look short enough for horse returning from 4 month break after disappointing run.
 
Stablemate CREATIVE FORCE looks intresting runner here, after finishing creditable fifth in July cup last time at Newmarket ,finishing strongly after not getting best of runs .Will be suited returning to 7 furlongs after winning the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot on soft ground .Looks open to further improvement over this trip ,and gets handy 7lb off his older rivals .
 
VALUE GUIDE PRICE 3-1 OR ABOVE 
 
Of the others Safe Voyage has fair each-way claims ,after returning to form last time at Chester in 7f Listed Stakes ,had some decent form last season ,including winning both the group two City York Stakes & Boomerang Mile at Leopardstown.Best form on soft ground ,so wouldn't mind any more rain.

Staying superstar Stradivarius bids to land the Goodwood Cup for fifth time in row for John Gosden,though this looks much stronger race than previous years.The seven-year-old ,hasn't looked quite as good this season , though wasnt given the best rides by Frankie Dettori in Ascot Gold Cup last time ,though probably would only been second at best.Looks worth taking on .
 
The Alan King trained TRUESHAN will relish these conditions ,having been withdrawn from Ascot Gold Cup when the ground was too firm ,had some useful form last season ,including winning the G2 Long Distance Cup at Ascot by 7 lenghs on soft ground ,though only 6th Northumberland Plate was only beaten under 4 lenghs giving lumps weight away .Has been very well supported in market for this race  ,though could well go off clear favourite .9-4 still rates as fair value .

Last years winner TABDEED should go well,after encouraging return in Chipchase stakes at Newcastle last month, running on nicely to finish never nearer 2l fourth to Chil Chil in good looking group three contest on All Weather .Has decent strike rate on turf (5 out 8) should be spot on after that seasonal reappearance three weeks ago,following similar path to last year when winning the race after finishing placed at Newcastle.

VALUE GUIDE PRICE 3-1 OR ABOVE .
 
King's Lynn looks the main danger after finishing close third in Wokingham handicap at Royal Ascot last month on soft ground, that was fair effort after not getting best of runs .Had previously won listed race at Haydock ,though will need career best to land this group three contest .
 
Of the others Happy Romance looks interesting, after finishing staying on third in G3 Coral Charge at Sandown last time over 5f,won on this card last year in Super Sprint over C&D ,also group three winner over 6f last season,though not always the most consistent sort .

ELDRICKJONES should go well after finishing excellent second behind Berkshire Shadow in Coventry stakes at Royal Ascot last month ,that was very good effort after finding trouble in running and having to come down the unfavoured centre of the track,though going off unfancied 66-1 shot there looked no fluke about that performance . Odds around 4-1 look solid each-way value .
 
VALUE PRICE 4-1 OR ABOVE 
 
Project Dante looks possible danger after finishing unlucky third in Norfolk Stakes over 5f at Royal Ascot ,that was decent effort after not getting best of runs ,though not certain to improve over this extra furlong .
