Form & Verdict

Two from two, the latest win at Ascot (good to soft) where she stuck on well to beat the persistent Rock Hunter by a neck; evidently a game filly and warrants respect in the hat-trick attempt.

Enchanting Empress

9st 2lb

J: David Egan

T: Dominic Ffrench Davis

Got up late on debut at Wolverhampton (AW) three weeks ago, wandering under pressure but nicely on top at the finish; the second has won since and the fourth has also run well, so there is substance to the form; sire's progeny have made a fine start; should be in the shake-up.

Form & Verdict

Scored easily at Chantilly (heavy) on debut, making the journey to France worthwhile, then finished only a neck behind Enchanting Empress at Ascot (good to soft); fighting chance on bare figures.

Rock Hunter

9st 7lb

J: Silvestre De Sousa

T: Amy Murphy

Smartly away and bagged the rail on his Chantilly debut four weeks ago (5f, heavy); lost his position at halfway but he surged to the front 1f out and went clear despite his evident inexperience off the bridle; while that form isn't the easiest to assess (field of newcomers and none of the principals have run since), it was a taking performance and he's of major interest.

2 yo Colt

OR:

Form & Verdict

Absent since winning a substandard Brocklesby at Doncaster (soft) two months ago; that form, on the whole, has not worked out well and it remains to be seen whether he's going to progress.

T: Dylan Cunha

January foal; by Territories; first foal; dam unplaced 7f 2yo, half-sister to useful 1m2f/1m4f winner Highland Rocker, out of US 1m4f Grade 3 winner; stable was 4-34 (12%) with 2yos last term; not the percentage call.

OR:

Form & Verdict

Finished 7l behind Hawaiian at Newbury but fared much better for a change of tactics at Ascot (good) where he nearly made all; bred to be a useful 2yo and further improvement looks plausible; possibilities.

Thrice-raced filly who is striking while the iron's hot, having recorded a 5l success at Bath (5.7f, good) last week in a maiden that was won by subsequent smart Haatem 12 months ago; hard to dismiss.

Kodiac colt who justified favouritism with a neck win at Newbury (good to soft) despite hanging right; the form has substance and he's a leading contender upped in grade; Hannon yard has a good record in this race.
