9/1

Supported on debut when disappointing but much better 11 weeks later when third (beaten 2¾) to a previous winner. The runner-up scored next time so there is substance to the form and he would have to go on the shortlist.

Improved at Ascot last time in what appeared a weak race by that track's standards. The runner-up has claimed a minor prize since, but it still looks as though the visor needs to help him deliver extra.

There was some promise in his Wetherby debut before looking too keen last time and failing to get home. Switched to new yard for 27,000 gns in July and having first run since. Bred to want much further.

Beaten by a much higher rated rival last time and probably flattered by the effort given the lack of depth in that race. More to do here up in distance and with a hood now fitted.

From a yard with a great team of juveniles, however there was little to take from her debut. 50/1 and apprentice ridden, she only beat one home and connections will hope better ground works for her.

€55,000 yearling with plenty of speed in the pedigree. Would not have to be anything out of the ordinary to land this so keep an eye on the market.

Made a lot of the running in a claimer here last time before fading into eighth. Has a lot to do in this grade.

Betting

Forecast

Biddy Brady (7/4), Mearing (3/1), Immortal Romance (7/2), Geesala Brave (6/1), I Was Only Joking (15/2), Emphatic (9/1), Twelve A (33/1), Blue Harmony (40/1), Sovereign Katie (125/1)

Verdict

The form of EMPHATIC's latest race looks more than good enough to take this, even before allowing for the improvement that seems likely. Mearing ran well enough on his debut for Charlie Fellowes, but has been off a while and has joined a yard going through a quiet spell. Immortal Romance and Gesala Brave need to improve, but I Was Only Joking would not have to be anything other than average to land this on debut.
