PreviewsCIRCUS MAXIMUS may have found the Derby trip too testing but he won the St James's Palace Stakes over this distance on the round course here last summer and tasted further top-flight success before the season was out when landing the Moulin. Aidan O'Brien has started the new season brightly and his charge is expected to prove a warm order on his seasonal return under Ryan Moore. Terebellum drops back in trip after landing the Dahlia Stakes on her reappearance at Newmarket and is respected with Frankie Dettori getting the leg up. Mustashry needs to better his effort in this race 12 months ago if he's to figure, though the lightly-raced Fox Chairman continues on an upward curve and has place possibilities along with Duke Of Hazzard, who progressed nicely through the Pattern ranks last year and fully deserves another shot at a Group 1 pot.
