Smart Stat: 3 - Stuart Williams' number of winners in the past ten runnings
Stuart Williams has won this three times in the last decade, including with Enthaar, who is bidding to win this race for the second year in succession. Enthaar was disappointing on the all-weather last time, but he is only 3 lb higher than when successful in this last season and races off his last winning mark (he won a six-furlong handicap at Kempton in January).
Smart Stat: 35% - John Gosden's strike rate at Yarmouth since the start of the 2016 season
A 35% strike rate at Yarmouth shows that John Gosden's runners should always be entitled to respect. This afternoon he introduces the well-bred Fundamental. He is by Dark Angel and out of Integral, a Group 1 winner who herself is out of Echelon, also a winner at the highest level.
Smart Stat: £24.90 - Charlie Fellowes's profit to a £1 level stake with horses running in first-time headgear
Charlie Fellowes shows a healthy level-stake profit when electing to fit headgear, so it is interesting that he applies a visor to Anglo Saxson. The three-year-old has been running creditably off this mark since going up 5 lb for winning here in July, and he will go close if the headgear brings about any improvement.
