Off the mark on second start at Windsor (1m, good to firm) this month, despite wandering around a bit in the closing stages. Should be more to come from this Camelot colt.

Dubawi colt, full-brother to Alnashama, dam a 1,000 Guineas winner. Conditions winner at Sandown (7f, good) last season. Not disgraced back there in 1m2f Group 3 last month. That run sets the standard.

Didn't justify market expectations in a maiden at Newmarket in the autumn over 1m2f (good to firm). Should prove capable in time, yard going well.

39-2OR:
Dansili colt who was too green to do himself justice on sole start as a juvenile. Improved on reappearance at Yarmouth (1m, good to firm) last month in finishing third. May prove capable of getting involved on AW bow.

39-2OR:
Shamardal colt cost 80,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to multiple winners. Market will reveal more but Queally a good booking for debut run.

Kodiac colt cost €77,000 as a foal, then made 120,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to 6f-1m winner Chapeau Bleu, wears hood on debut outing.

39-2OR:
Improved on second start when 1L third behind Employer at Windsor (1m, good to firm) this month. Gets De Sousa back on board here and no reason not to build on that run.

39-2OR:
Speightstown colt who fetched 70,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to three winners over middle distances. Hasn't shown enough in two starts over similar trips to warrant selection here.

39-2OR:
Exceed and Excel colt outran odds of 33/1 on debut at Nottingham (1m½f, soft) in November when finishing a head second. Five further winners have come out of the race since. Yard yet to really fire this term, but needs respecting.

39-2OR:
Animal Kingdom colt who cost 60,000 gns as a juvenile and a half-brother to three winners in the USA. Better run at Yarmouth (1m, good to firm) last month on second start, though will need improving on that to score here.
Watch last raceLast run
Oasis Dream colt cost 180,000 gns yearling. Dam a two-year-old 7f winner, half-sister to high-class winner up to 2m Hartnell. Market check required on first start.

39-2OR:
Colt by Teofilo, in trouble from the halfway stage in Newbury debut (1m, good to soft) last month. Should prove much better than that in time.

39-2OR:
Pivotal colt is a half-brother to 1m winner Still Life and 6f winner Zilza, not the most likely newcomer in this line-up.

38-11OR:
Intello filly who cost 9,000gns as a yearling, readily held off in outings on the AW at Lingfield and Wolverhampton this spring, goes up in trip now but not hard to bypass.

Betting

Forecast

Tinos (SP), Drill (SP), Wafy (SP), Madam Dragonfly (SP), Rapier (SP), Courtside (SP), Qawamees (SP), Employer (SP), Bawaasil (SP), Mutafani (SP), Yvanlend (SP), Team Decision (SP), Player's Luck (SP), Glenglade (SP), Guarantor (SP), Take It Down Under (SP)

Verdict

WAFY has his sights lowered dramatically after appearing in a Sandown Group 3 last month on seasonal bow. A winner at two, the Dubawi colt shaped well enough in that soft-ground contest and should take some stopping if adapting to the Polytrack here. Employer got off the mark last time out at Windsor, despite getting a bit lonely in front near the end, there should be more to come from him. The form of Qawamees runner-up finish on debut at Nottingham last backend has worked out and he completes the shortlist alongside Mutafani, who was only 1L behind Employer last time.
