J: Oisin Orr

Took time to come to hand last season but he saw off 12 rivals at Ripon in September off just 2lb lower; good run on AW when last seen in November; should win more races but perhaps not on this ground after an absence.

1m and 7f winner who notched first 6f success at Ascot on latest start; that represented a career-best effort and, although 4lb higher, he may be capable of better still.

J: Connor Beasley

T: Michael Dods

Two wins when trained by Andrew Balding, the second in a 7f classified event here last September; gelded prior to a low-key stable debut at Newmarket (6f, good) three weeks ago; needs to leave that well behind if he's to feature.

3 yo Colt

Won three of first four starts on turf/AW and put a below-par reappearance run behind him when third returned to AW last time; has had only six runs, so may be capable of better.

Has won once for each of last four seasons but below best on both runs this year; should be spot on now but has work to do to reverse latest placings with Glenfinnan.

Raatea

9st 5lb

J: Ryan Sexton

T: Julie Camacho

Only 1lb higher than for Haydock win last June (6f, good to firm; cheekpieces first time); shaped quite nicely on his return at Newmarket, held up in a race in which little landed a blow from the back; won second time out last year and, after two starts without them, the cheekpieces are back on today (hooded latest); capable of a big run with drying ground in his favour.

J: Rossa Ryan

T: Julie Camacho

Below best over C&D last May but his close third in this race (good) on return in 2022 shows he can be taken seriously off his current mark, just 2lb higher than his Haydock win last June; shouldn't be far away.

Won three consecutive races over 6f and 7f last summer but form since last win has been patchy; well beaten back on grass and back over 7f last time and plenty to find on that form.

Triple 7f turf winner who ran respectably when second behind progressive English Oak at Haydock last time; unlikely to be inconvenienced by the drop back to 6f, especially if there's a good gallop to chase.

Mainly consistent but he notched first win in almost two years when beating Manila Scouse at Wetherby (soft) in April; respectable run since but, although he's won on quick ground, may prefer more rain.
