1: EILEENDOVER (3:20pm Newmarket) (4 votes)
Four wins in nine starts for this Pam Sly owned and trainer runner, with the latest victory coming here at Newmarket (1m 6f, good to firm) last month, when 3 lengths clear of Single and a further 2 lengths to the rest. Stepped up to Group 2 level, when a creditable fourth of eight in the Park Hill Stakes at Doncaster, a fortnight ago. Shaped up as though today’s 2m trip will suit and has the potential to feature here, with each-way claims at least/

2: TRIBAL ART (3:55pm Newmarket) (3 votes)
Three wins in six starts and comes in looking of a hattrick, having followed a win at Kempton (1m 2f, a/w) last month, with victory at Carlisle (1m 3f, good to firm) a fortnight ago, when a neck ahead of Charging Thunder. Mark Johnston clearly has high hopes and the booking of William Buick only adds to that idea. Potential for a treble here, but will at least go very close.

3: BABINDI (5:05pm Newmarket) (3 votes)
Willie Haggas’s charge was a six race maiden, before taking the spoils in her penultimate start, when winning at Bath (1m 2f, good to soft) back in July, finishing 2.25 lengths clear in a four runner contest. She stepped up a level in latest at Nottingham and placed second, behind True Scarlet, who has since won again. Strong contender and market leader for this race.

4: TRIDENT (2:45pm Newmarket) (2 votes)
Andre Fabre trained contender, who placed third on just his second start in a group 3 contest over at Deauville, before stepping up to Group 1 level and finishing second in the Prix Morny, also at Deauville (6f, soft) last month. Attempts the extended trip this afternoon, while unraced on good or faster ground so far. Strong favourite, but it will be interesting to see if there is any inclement weather.

5: DIAMOND BOY (8:30pm Wolverhampton) (2 votes)
A five race maiden, before picking up wins at Windsor (1m 3f, good to firm) and then Kempton (1m 3f, a/w), when easing to a 4.5 length win ten days ago, ahead of Mutarraby. Makes Tapeta debut and off a 6lbs penalty, but looked to have plenty in-hand last time out and has strong chances of bagging the hattrick.
