Slightly disappointing when sent off favourite for a Newmarket Listed contest last time out, but this yard's horses usually improve for the run and this trip should also be more to his liking; one to consider.

Improved on his first two runs for his second victory at Yarmouth last time out, when value for much more than the official winning distance. Every chance he can progress to prove competitive here on a sounder surface.

Debut winner at Kempton back in October over 1m. This is obviously much, much tougher but runs for respected connections and no reason he shouldn't go well.

Just a narrow victory to get off the mark at Newmarket in October, and needs to improve on that to get competitive in this though the longer trip may suit.

Comprehensive and unexpected winner at Newmarket last time out on turf debut, but needs to improve again to get on terms with the best of these over a longer trip.

Much more exposed than any of the rest of these and 57L defeat at Epsom last time out means he's tough to fancy in the same grade.

Steps up markedly in trip having gotten off the mark at Newmarket last time out over 7f, but could progress again to play a hand in this, especially given the extra distance should suit on pedigree.

Down the field on two starts in maidens and looks set for another minor role in this on all the available evidence.

A winner of two of his three races last year, but they were both on heavy ground so he has a bit to prove on a sounder surface in a much tougher race.

Betting

Forecast

Kew Gardens (8/11), Corelli (4/1), Thrave (6/1), Knight To Behold (7/1), King And Empire (14/1), Star Of Southwold (20/1), Wax And Wane (33/1), Technological (50/1), Thunderhooves (100/1)

Verdict

This looks likely to be between Kew Gardens and CORELLI. The first-named is entitled to improve on his third placed finish in a Listed contest last time out, especially given this yard's horses usually improve for the run. However John Gosden's charge was value for further than the winning distance when dominating a three horse race at Yarmouth last time out, and more than worth a chance at this level. Of the others, Knight To Behold could compete for a place.
