1: MONTASSIB (3:55pm Ascot) (4 votes)

Winner of his first three starts, including a victory at Goodwood (7f, soft) in a Class 2 contest, back in May, when 2.5 lengths clear of Marshal Dan. Has since made two strong runs in handicaps, with a fifth in the Buckingham Palace Stakes and fourth in the Bunbury Cup. Willie Haggas’ runner goes in as clear favourite here and another win, would be of little surprise.

2. MANACCAN (2:10pm Ascot) (2 votes)

Only career win, came back in August of last year at Newmarket (6f, good to firm), when 4.5 lengths clear of Wajd. Form had dropped off slightly since, however a second in the latest at Chester (5f, good) in a Class 2 contest, suggests Joh Ryan’s colt is near to his best again, having won a first-time tongue tie. In the mix here, with Hayley Turner onboard.

3. GIVE IT SOME TEDDY (2:52pm Redcar) (2 votes)

Eight wins in fifty starts, although the last of those came back in August of last year at Thirsk. Its been eleven races since then, with a smattering of second places amongst them, while recent runs have shown a return to form, after a dip, placing fourth at both Newcastle (1m, a/w) and Thirsk (1m, good to soft) last time out, when 3.25 lengths behind Empirestateofmind. Favourite on the boards, but this is a tough contest all round and he will needs to show a little more here, to succeed.

4. DUBAWI LEGEND (3:15pm Curragh) (2 votes)

Just the one victory for this Hugo Palmer colt, with that coming in his opening start at Doncaster (7f, good to firm), back in July of last year. He placed second in the Group 1 – Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket in October, when 2 lengths behind Native Trail, before struggling in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf andthe 2000 Guineas. The recent third at Newbury (6f, good to firm) three weeks ago, saw them them fair better in the Group 3 – Hackwood Stakes and further improvement is on the cards here and should be right in amongst the main contenders.

5. BOPEDRO (3:55pm Ascot) (2 votes)

Races in the same contest as Montassib and has six career wins, with the last of those coming at Curragh (1m, good) in August for the Irish Cambridgeshire, finishing 2.5 lengths clear of Moddy Poddle. Form had dropped since then and in his first run for David O’Meara a fortnight ago, he placed fourth of ten over C&D, in the Class 2 – Porsche Handicap, keeping on well despite not being ideally placed in the closing stages. Should feature here and may improve on that run, if he can stay out of trouble.
