The Racing Post's top tipster – Tom 'Pricewise' Segal – A staying on fourth to Ascot Stakes runner up Tiger Cliff on his seasonal debut, giving weight away, was an excellent warm up for this. Will appreciate any rain and should love this stamina test.
The Sun - Templegate – Suffered with seconditis last season, but improved throughout. The Henry II Stakes was not run to suit and the stronger the pace here, the better the chances of this consistent type getting his nose in front.
The Mirror - Newsboy – John Oxx’s battler is ready made for this race and any ease in the ground will enhance his chances. A running on third in last year’s race, he will be staying on when others have cried enough.
William Hill - Trading Tip – John Oxx’s battler is ready made for this race and any ease in the ground will enhance his chances. A running on third in last year’s race, he will be staying on when others have cried enough.
The Express - Computerman – German racing is in the ascendency, as proven by Energizer at Ascot 2012 and Earl Of Tinsdale looks sure to improve for the step up in distance. Has class and courage and will relish a battle.
The Mail - Robin Goodfellow – Ascot will be a mass of flying hats if Estimate can give the Queen a first Gold Cup. After impressive victories in the Queen’s Vase and Sagaro Stakes, this exciting filly has the ideal credentials.
