really filled the eye beforehand and turned the tables on Creative Force from last year's Jersey Stakes, proving better than ever, coming out the clear winner in his group, if only narrowly defeating the runner-up on the opposite side of the field, a potential rematch between them a hard one to call; raced stand side, chased leader, shaken up over 2f out, led group over 1f out, kept on well, edged ahead late on; there's no reason why he won't continue to give a good account, though there are fine margins between the best of the home team in the sprinting division.

wasted no time getting back to form, running really well again on this track, wide apart from the winner, beating all those around him; broke well, soon steadied, effort over 2f out, headway over 1f out, led well inside final 1f, battled well, just failed; he'll surely pick up a race at this level against European opposition again this year, with the Champions Sprint likely to be a target again.

behind Home Affairs when last seen, ran much better than his compatriot, right up to his best after 3 months off, coming from the sort of position often associated with his rider on this track, but the lateness of his arrival all down to him, just taking slightly too long to find full stride after being off the bridle before most; steadied at the start, in rear, ridden halfway, not quicken, headway over 1f out, stayed on strongly final 100 yds, nearest at the finish.

The first million-pound running of what was once the Cork & Orrery, and it attracted a massive field, even with 3 withdrawn due to the ground, runners from Australia, the US and Japan supplementing a large British and Irish team, a shame all the same that the King's Stand winner Nature Strip didn't get the chance to emulate Choisir and complete the double, his form on Tuesday some way in advance of that shown by the principals here, the race essentially 2 in one, with those drawn 16 and above having their own contest near the stand rail, the larger group racing in the centre, the first 2 on opposite sides, the next 3 coming up the middle, where the advantage lay hard to be adamant, even if the winner was the only one in the near side group in the first 13 home, though the next race, the Wokingham, gave the view of the riders in no uncertain terms, probably best to take the result just at face value for now.

NAVAL CROWN really filled the eye beforehand and turned the tables on Creative Force from last year's Jersey Stakes, proving better than ever, coming out the clear winner in his group, if only narrowly defeating the runner-up on the opposite side of the field, a potential rematch between them a hard one to call; raced stand side, chased leader, shaken up over 2f out, led group over 1f out, kept on well, edged ahead late on; there's no reason why he won't continue to give a good account, though there are fine margins between the best of the home team in the sprinting division.

CREATIVE FORCE (IRE) wasted no time getting back to form, running really well again on this track, wide apart from the winner, beating all those around him; broke well, soon steadied, effort over 2f out, headway over 1f out, led well inside final 1f, battled well, just failed; he'll surely pick up a race at this level against European opposition again this year, with the Champions Sprint likely to be a target again.

ARTORIUS (AUS) behind Home Affairs when last seen, ran much better than his compatriot, right up to his best after 3 months off, coming from the sort of position often associated with his rider on this track, but the lateness of his arrival all down to him, just taking slightly too long to find full stride after being off the bridle before most; steadied at the start, in rear, ridden halfway, not quicken, headway over 1f out, stayed on strongly final 100 yds, nearest at the finish.

CAMPANELLE (IRE) winner of the Queen Mary and the Commonwealth Cup (awarded race) in 2 previous visits to Royal Ascot, ran another fine race, showing bags of speed, but sticking to her task well once she lost the lead; led group, tanked along, shaken up under 2f out, headed soon after, kept on well inside final 1f; she's a genuine filly who clearly goes particularly well on this track.

SACRED back down in trip, ran well after 10 months off, getting going just a shade too late, enough in her effort to think she can win races again this year; slowly into stride, in rear, shaken up soon after halfway, not quicken, headway over 1f out, kept on well close home.

HIGHFIELD PRINCESS (FR) wasn't disgraced, this track just not playing to her strengths so well as York had last time; close up, went with zest, ridden 2f out, led over 1f out, headed inside final 1f, no extra late on; she'll be an interesting runner if given her chance in the Nunthorpe.

GRENADIER GUARDS (JPN) was below form after 11 weeks off, a promising forward move petering out as if he might just have needed the run, on his toes beforehand; held up, effort halfway, headway over 2f out, challenged over 1f out, weakened inside final 1f.

HOME AFFAIRS (AUS) looked the form pick, with a narrow verdict over Nature Strip early in the year, but he was well below form after 3 months off, seeming too fresh and not seeing his race out; raced stand side, led group, raced freely, ridden 2f out, headed over 1f out, weakened.

GARRUS (IRE) was below form, this grade generally a bit beyond him; raced stand side, waited with, shaken up under 3f out, wandered, made little impression.

VADREAM third behind the first 2 in last year's Jersey Stakes, has been well below form in 2 runs this year, raising questions as to whether she's trained on or not, perhaps a chance back in less exacting company needed to get her back on track; steadied at the start, in rear, travelled well, shaken up 2f out, soon beaten.

DRAGON SYMBOL demoted after passing the post first in last year's Commonwealth Cup, ran poorly, not looking at ease under the conditions; slowly into stride, raced stand side, in touch, hung right, ridden over 2f out, weakened over 1f out.

GREAT AMBASSADOR runner-up in the Ayr Gold Cup when last seen, shaped as if needing the run after 9 months off, faced a stiff task in this grade; raced stand side, held up, effort over 2f out, not quicken, weakened over 1f out; he'd seemed likely to progress again this year and may yet do so, with this under his belt.
