Form & Verdict

Out of a 1m4f Group 3 winner and rewarded enterprising ride when battling well to make winning debut at Chelmsford (1m2f) last month; that form already makes him a leading contender here, and he has very obvious scope for improvement over the longer trip.

J: David Egan

Remote this time last year in the Chester Vase (soft), also no show at Royal Ascot (good) next time and those have been his only two races on turf; that poses a huge question but he's progressed well coming from off the pace on AW, including for two 2m wins late last year and a fine second at AW Championships six weeks ago; big shout on that form but is drawn wide.

Boasts a 50% strike-rate (4-8) on AW; has form figures of 113 since upped to 2m, the wins gained at Kempton in late 2023; absent since running creditably in Class 2 at this course on New Year's Day; each-way claims off unaltered mark.

Half-sister to winners Deal A Dollar (1m4f/12.4f AW; RPR 103), Dollar Reward (6f-7f GB 2yo/HK AW; 91), Dollar Bid (1m AW; 88), Chase The Dollar (7f-2m including 2yo/AW; 88) and My Dubawi (6f/7f AW, including 2yo; 96); dam 7f 2yo winner (including Group 2; 106); appealing pedigree suggests she should take to the AW and the stable can certainly get one ready first time; interesting, especially if positive in the market.

Raced a bit too freely in first-time blinkers (now removed) and managed only fifth when warm favourite for 1m2f Chelmsford novice won by Duke Of Oxford last month, but was only beaten about 2l there and has a 7lb pull in the weights here.

Struggled in three runs for David Evans in the spring and beaten out of sight on her stable debut at Lingfield (1m5f classified) last week; now drops back in trip on handicap debut and needs a transformation; the tongue-tie worn last time is removed and cheekpieces now go on.

Looked a non-stayer at 2m3f in her second handicap but placed in the other two at 2m, last time reversing Ffos Las placings with My Granny Lily when runner-up at Exeter (soft); Isabelle Ryder is again on board and she should be in the thick of it.

J: Richard Patrick

T: Emma Lavelle

Limited on the Flat despite threatening a couple of times; never out of the first two in first four hurdle runs and she had a tough task from out the weights at Cheltenham last month; still has potential in this sphere and she's not ruled out back in calmer waters at this new trip; her Ludlow win came at 2m (good) but she looked a strong stayer on the Flat.
