Count on Es Que Love to be a winner this time at Beverley
ES Que Love was outclassed in the Sprint Cup last time out, but should find the competition more to his liking at Beverley.
The three-year-old has been highly tried this term after notching up two nice handicap wins at the start of the season.
Mark Johnston's bold strategy may not have paid dividends with any big-race wins, but his mark has shot up 20lb, going from 85 to 105, which is a couple of pounds lower than the 107 he achieved after finishing a close-up ninth to Black Caviar at Royal Ascot.
Obviously, that kind of rating has made handicaps a tough ask, but he was far from disgraced when a two-length seventh in a blanket finish to the Stewards' Cup.

He subsequently flopped in Ripon's Great St Wilfrid, but showed that to be all wrong when claiming fourth in a Listed heat at Newmarket next time.
Johnston then switched him back to Group One company at Haydock, but Es Que Love had to work hard to regain ground after stumbling at the start and he was treading water at the finish.
The Clodovil colt has had a busy year, but victory in the Betfred Violet And Eddie Smith Memorial Conditions Stakes would be thoroughly deserved and could yet see Es Que Love in action on Champions Day next month.
Sir Henry Cecil drops Srinagar Girl back to a mile in the Get Married At The Racecourse Handicap after the filly failed to see out 12 furlongs last time.
In all honesty, ten furlongs has looked a stretch for this Shamardal filly, although she ran well over that distance at Lingfield earlier in the year.
Tackling a mile for the first time here, stable jockey Tom Queally makes the long journey north for this one ride and Srinagar Girl can make the journey pay.
Hoofalong made a promising start when second at York and can hit the mark in the Thanks For Your Support In 2012 Maiden Auction Stakes.
Beaten half-a-length by a previous winner in May, Hoofalong has been given plenty of time by Mick Easterby and that patience can be rewarded.
