8-1, won six-runner novice by about 2l on debut at Carlisle (5f, good to soft) 19 days ago, clear with one who had been second twice previously; his dam was second in the 2020 Silver Wokingham here (and was effective on fast ground) and Jamie Spencer excels on this straight course; a possible.

His dam was Listed-placed over 6f/7f and he was the 9-2 joint-favourite when recovering from a slow start to win by a short head on last month's debut at York (5f, good); the runner-up Francisco's Piece (who was conceding 5lb) has won a Listed race since; subsequently acquired by Wathnan Racing (remains in same yard); he's a highly likeable prospect who is on the shortlist.

Bought for 48,000gns at the breeze-ups in April and he was an encouraging third of 11 at 16-1 on last month's debut at Windsor (6f, good); he can win races but it will be a shock if he's good enough to threaten today.

J: Hollie Doyle

T: Richard Spencer

Wandered around under pressure but he was well on top at the finish when making a winning debut at Southwell (AW) five weeks ago; that race hasn't thrown up any subsequent winners and it's likely he'll need a good step forward to follow up; dam was a mudlark, so slow ground shouldn't be an excuse.

11-8 when winning on debut at Newbury (5f, good to soft) in April and reportedly unsuited by the soft (heavy in places) ground when disappointing favourite in the Listed National Stakes at Sandown; the Newbury form has worked out extremely well and he retains significant potential; one to consider.

Hasn't gone unbacked on either start, not getting the best of runs on heavy at the Curragh and then third at Dundalk (AW) in what's often a strong maiden (won by a well-touted Ger Lyons newcomer); De Sousa is booked for an Irish stable and he could take some beating.

16-1, prevailed in blanket finish on debut in 12-runner Cork maiden (5f, good) last month and the second/third both won next time; well beaten at Tipperary since but perhaps the soft ground didn't suit; changed hands for £125,000 on Monday; retains potential and not ruled out each-way at what is likely to be a big price.

Well-backed favourite on debut at Bath (5.7f, good) where his inexperience was evident close home (hung badly left) and he came third of 14, beaten about 5l; has changed trainer since (ex-Dominic Ffrench Davis, now his former assistant); there can be optimism he will improve but he may be best watched in this hot contest.
