Our team pick out some eyecatchers for your free My Stable trackers and there are pointers from the gallops too.

Snap Shots (r) ran a brave race in defeat at Ripon


Snap Shots,who finished fourth in the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot and third in Listed company at Sandown earlier in the season, could be worth sticking with following a brave performance in defeat at Ripon.

Tom Dascombe's colt boasts an official rating of 95 and lost little in finishing second under top weight in the 21 Engineer Regiment Sapper Conditions Stakes.

The son of Kodiac has done enough in five career starts to suggest he's up to scoring in Pattern company and he holds an entry in the Listed Two-Year-Old Trophy at Redcar in October.

Stormardal will probably go up by half a dozen pounds for winning the City Of Ripon Stakes - a welcome return to form for the three-year-old - but he could well win again.

He won his maiden on soft ground so should relish getting his toe in this autumn and looks capable of progressing judged by this performance where he settled much better than has often been the case. Highly tried as a juvenile (he finished fifth in the Dewhurst Stakes), he may just have a few pounds up his sleeve.

Dance Of Fire is already in the Flat Notebook and he beat his sole rival to score at 1/2 at Epsom despite not looking entirely at home on the cambers.

His immediate future now lies in the handicapper's hands but he showed a good attitude, his Goodwood form has worked out well and there should be more to come from him back on a more conventional course.

Gallops Pointers

TUPI is in top order following a solid run in defeat at Deauville and again took the eye working ahead of a choice of high-profile engagements.

The Tamayuz colt finished second in a very warm Listed race at Deauville and looks progressive.

He glided up the main all-weather ahead of a probable tilt at the Stonehenge Stakes at Salisbury, although he also holds the Solario Stakes engagement at Sandown.

GIBEON would be an able deputy in the Salisbury race after impressing on his debut at Newmarket.

The son of Cape Cross carries the silks of Lady Howard de Walden and could hardly be in better form at home.

He really grabbed the ground in his latest piece of stronger work.

A posse of two-year-olds came up the strip, including LEXINGTON TIMES and STEP TO THE SHEARS. The latter has numerous entries and looks in very good order.

GRENADE and GUILTY enjoyed a brisk sharpener and are to engage in nursery competition this week.

CRAFTY CHOICE has been in excellent form and worked encouragingly ahead of what will be a hat-trick attempt in a nursery.

ZURIGHA looked very sprightly in her breeze ahead of a possible run in Sandown's Atalanta Stakes.

This is a race the Hannons like to target and Zurigha appears to have excellent credentials.
