Big-race entries include the Derby; got up in final strides on debut at Sandown (1m, good to soft) last August before 4l sixth of nine in Group 2 Royal Lodge at Newmarket (1m, good to firm); 10-1, finished strongly from the rear when second of six in Listed race at Epsom (1m2f, good) 18 days ago, which looked promising for this test over a longer trip.

Got up in final strides on debut at Sandown (1m, good to soft) last August before another creditable run when 4l sixth of nine in Group 2 at Newmarket (1m, good to firm); his dam is from a classy family and this Camelot colt could relish the step up in trip on today's reappearance; contender.

Needed every yard of the trip to collar Caviar Heights in Sandown maiden (good to soft) on debut and looks a middle-distance prospect; may be a little tapped for toe at this stronger level kept to 1m.

Form & Verdict

Sea The Stars who had the reopposing Crown Estate narrowly behind in fifth when fourth on his 7f course debut (good) eight weeks ago, running green but keeping on encouragingly in the closing stages; 1m is likely to suit and he should go close at the least with normal improvement.

T: Owen Burrows

Promise in his first two starts before getting turned over at 1-5 in a four-runner novice at Chelmsford last September (1m2f); excelled himself when fourth of seven in the Group 1 Futurity at Doncaster (1m, heavy) on his stable debut in October, staying on late; debatable whether he has as much in hand of Castle In The Sand as BHA ratings imply but he's capable of better at this trip and looks the one to beat; untried on quicker than good to soft but his dam's best turf form came on good to firm.

Form & Verdict

Ran green when fourth of seven on his Haydock debut (7f, good to firm) in June; failed to build on that when 6l fifth (Caviar Heights neck ahead in fourth) of nine over 7f here (good) just a week later; blinkers being reached for at such an early stage could be perceived as a negative but the same headgear has had a very positive effect on a couple of his stablemates this season.
