Form & Verdict

Left Sir Mark Prescott after disappointing nursery debut in October but made all for emphatic Brighton maiden win (7f, good) for new stable in May and proved he can be very competitive off new handicap mark when sixth (just behind Brunel Nation) in valuable race at Goodwood (7f, good) later that month; raced wide throughout there and could still have a bigger run in him.

Form & Verdict

Free-going 3yo who won 6f AW maiden on seasonal debut in March; posted sound effort when second at Haydock (6f, good; first-time cheekpieces) last month and will be fine back over 7f but his latest run was disappointing and others here appeal more.

Came good with two wins this spring (6f/7f) and was creditable fourth in valuable handicap at Goodwood (7f, good) on next outing; disappointed on soft ground at Chester last month but further progress remains possible.

Form & Verdict

Close second to Final Watch in this race last year (good to soft); no match for winner when keeping-on second over C&D (good to firm) last month and now 0-18 since his winning 2yo debut but probably won't be far away.

Form & Verdict

0-4 over 6f for new stable this season but lost out by only a nose when clear second at Goodwood (good) last month and his recent fourth here (good to firm) was also a good effort; well worth another crack at 7f and Connor Planas claims a useful 3lb today; has shown promise on good to soft (unraced on softer).

6 yo Gelding

OR: 83

Form & Verdict

Safely held in two valuable 7f handicaps on the Rowley Mile in May and needs to up his game today but it's worth noting he's now 3lb lower than when winning this race by a neck under Neil Callan a year ago (good to soft).

8st 7lb

J: Marco Ghiani

T: William Stone

All wins on good/good to soft; well suited by the Newmarket tracks and it's best to forgive his poor effort in this contest last year (lost both front shoes); back on last winning mark and he's 2-3 under Marco Ghiani; one for the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Built upon her reappearance run when staying on well from the rear for third at Newbury (7f, good to firm) last month; has the services of Oisin Murphy again here and is not yet fully exposed; unproven on slow ground; can be very dangerous if conditions suit.

Unsuited by soft ground on final 3yo start; won at this course last September, may still have more to offer and looks interesting back here on reappearance; scored first time out last term.

Triple 7f winner for Roger Varian last year; gave a pretty good account before fading into sixth at Epsom (7f, good) nine days ago but is now 0-6 for George Baker and needs to find something extra.

Form & Verdict

Hit new heights in June, battling well for narrow wins at Leicester (7f, soft) and Windsor (1m, good to firm), and form of the latter success has been well advertised by the second since; must be considered in current mood.

Form & Verdict

Raced prominently when winning twice over 7f on AW in early 2023 but ridden very patiently over 6f in recent months; on the downgrade now but too well handicapped to rule out, and it will be interesting what tactics are used on this return to 7f.

Form & Verdict

Won twice over 7f on Tapeta during the winter and was a very respectable fifth when back on turf at Goodwood (7f, good) in May, having been forced to wait for a gap to appear; 2lb lower here; ran well on soft ground last year; no surprise if he features.

Much better known as a sprinter but has form over 7f; now 3lb lower than when placed at Goodwood (6f, heavy) in May and his more recent efforts were perfectly respectable; back up in trip with William Buick up; a possible.

Form & Verdict

Unexposed 3yo; prevailed by only a neck and did not look straightforward when odds-on winner of Windsor maiden (6f, good) on seasonal/stable debut in May, but is back up in trip for today's handicap debut and could have a lot more to offer if the cheekpieces keep him focused; unraced on slow ground.
