1: BLUE CUP (2:40pm York) (4 votes)

Grabbed a maiden victory on just his second start last year at Sandown (1m 1f, good to firm), when 5 lengths clear of Gas Monkey.

Looked to have needed the return after eight months away, but still came away with a creditable fifth at Epsom (1m 2f, good) last month, having started slowly, failed to settle and then had his path blocked several times in that race. Impression given was he probably could have placed at very least that day and should get a much better run this afternoon.

2: SHAWAAMEKH (3:40pm York) (4 votes)

Three wins in eighteen starts, including six places, with the last of the victories coming at Thirsk (7f, good to soft), nearly two years ago.

Form has been a bit hit and miss, but a strong fourth finish at Chester (7f, good to soft) last week, on his first run since wind surgery has boosted hopes here. Well handicapped and is expected to be right up there, as they head into the closing stages. Harrison Shaw continues onboard.

3: SNOW LANTERN (2:10pm York) (3 votes)

Strong second on debut last Summer, when 1.25 lengths behind Zabeel Queen at Ascot (7f, good to firm) and returned to action last month to take the spoils at Newbury (1m, good) in a Class 4 contest, 1.75 lengths clear of Derab.

The third that day, Fantastic Fox has since won to back up that form and this daughter of 1,000 Guineas winner, Sky Lantern will have more to offer today.

4: SANTIAGO (3:10pm York) (2 votes)

Three wins in seven starts, including the Group 2 – Queens Vase at Ascot and of course the Irish Derby at Curragh (1m 4f, good) last June, when beating Tiger Moth by a head. Returned nineteen days ago at Navan (1m 6f, good) in a Group 3 contest, but disappointed with a fourth that day, however he will be fitter for that run and a resurgence is very likely this afternoon

5: POTENZA (3:25pm Newbury) (2 votes)

Had not added to his three victories in six runs, having placed in three of those, however it all came good at Chester (1m 4f, good to soft) last time out, when 2.25 lengths clear of Carlos Felix a week ago. Escapes a penalty today and can certainly build on that run today. Due to go up 5lbs, so has a it opportunity to strike before the increase.
