Neither of these horses particuarly caught the eye on a busy day's racing but both are crying out for a trip and must be followed when stepped up in distance.
Both are by Sea The Stars, who has had a fantastic season with Taghrooda and Sea The Moon so far and it's no coincidence that these two performers have both shown massive improvement when stepped up to twelve furlongs.
The first is Shamkiyr, who looked like ten furlongs was too short in the Prix Eugene Adam and clearly needs further at this point in his career.
It wasn't quite the boost for the French Derby that our Gallic friends were hoping for but Shamkiyr stayed on very strongly off a quick pace that day and the pedestrian pace they went at Maisons-Laffitte wouldn't have suited him one bit.
The second is My Titania who surely has to be stepped up to middle distances having finished third over nine furlongs in the Kilboy Estate Stakes at the Curragh.
She actually bucked the trend of Sea The Stars' progeny last season by winning decent races as a juvenile but she looked ready to be tested over further next time out as she just lacked toe at a crucial point in proceedings on Sunday.
Both could well be very good at twelve furlongs and shouldn't be dismissed just yet.
Latest Gallops Report:
Sir Michael Stoute utilised three separate gallops on a busy morning when some of his Ascot and Goodwood horses were in action.
On the Round Gallop the spotlight fell on TELESCOPE and ESTIMATE.
King George favourite Telescope continued working solo and looked in good heart as he came up the strip.
Gold Cup runner-up ESTIMATE looked well in herself as she engaged in a similar exercise ahead of the Goodwood Cup.
Next up was Gordon Stakes candidate SNOW SKY who under Prince Khalid's retained jockey James Doyle led STOMACHION.
Snow Sky looks to have done well since Royal Ascot and may develop into a St Leger candidate.
GOTHIC just had the call over TOP TUG but in behind this pair the recently-gelded MUNAASER moved best.
The last worker was RYE HOUSE who also came up solo.
The action moved onto the Trial Ground where a number of two-year-olds went through their paces.
DISEGNO was in imperious form as he stormed three lengths clear of MUKHAYYAM and ZIGAYANI.
Ryan Moore teamed-up with DARSHINI and was in the drive position to keep EBEN DUBAI (Shane Kelly) at bay.
Finally the Stoute show moved onto the Short Gallop where BRAGGING accompanied PSYCHOMETRY.
SHAMA'S SONG swung along with DYANORA in close attendance.
EXECUTRIX led ALONG AGAIN and ASYAD.
