Form & Verdict

Didn't get home over Sandown's stiff 1m1f two weeks ago but a mile looks his trip, the distance for both his wins; 4lb higher than for his very narrow Goodwood win in May so perhaps high enough in the weights, but hard to rule out; races prominently.

J: Oisin Murphy

T: Andrew Balding

Can front-run; registered two wins and a second over 1m on good or good to firm last May-August, his highlights on turf last year; reappeared with AW win at Wolverhampton in February and although trying to overcome a wide draw in warm race there in March did not work out, that shouldn't attract much criticism; needs a career best but not dismissed.

Form & Verdict

Six-time winner, latterly over C&D in April (soft); this 6lb higher mark is beginning to look troublesome, though her Royal Ascot test ten days ago was always going to be tough.

Recorded a clearcut success on soft going at Windsor (1m) in the spring; respectable third on similar surface at this course (1m1f) most recently; has slipped back to an attractive mark and enters calculations.

Similar type to Junkanoo, having recorded a clearcut success on soft going at Windsor (1m) in the spring; not disgraced over 1m1f three starts back; on a workable mark and looks one to consider.

Form & Verdict

On a dangerous mark and 1m2f has looked a stretch in three of his last four runs; back over 1m at Kempton two starts ago he finished strongly for a close fourth; exposed but has a big run in him.

J: Kieran Shoemark

Won twice last year for Tom Ward, short-headed on reappearance for new yard and career-best form to win on latest outing; the last two of those runs were 1m on Kempton AW but there's no great worry about his return to turf and he needs respect.

Form & Verdict

Won her first two turf starts, the latest a 1m2f soft-ground handicap at Nottingham when hooded for the first time; went off a bit hot before stopping quickly at Ascot and easy to forgive her that; fine on faster ground and dropping back to 1m is no hardship.

In peak form at the end of 2022 and has finished closer in each of his three runs this campaign, coming from well off the pace in first-time blinkers at Kempton (returned to 1m from 1m2f) 17 days ago; thereabouts.
