Has won twice on AW but hasn't looked anything like as effective on turf and perhaps not a surprise given his pedigree. Faster ground may help here but others preferred.

Gained his second win on ninth career start at Doncaster last time when stepped up in trip. May need to improve again to defy a 7lb higher mark here but the booking of Moore is a positive to his chance.

Ran some promising races as a juvenile and returned in good form to win at Beverley in May. Creditable effort in defeat at Catterick last time and still unexposed.

Some promise in her debut when green here last year and returned with an improved effort when a 7L third here on the Rowley course. Form of her most recent run franked since by the runner-up and she could be on a good mark on handicap debut here.

Returned to form with a game success at Catterick last time out. 4lb rise for that looks fair and sire's progeny have progressed well as three-year-olds to date.

Forecast

Neverbeen To Paris (2/1), Rococo (11/4), Dr Richard Kimble (11/4), Arthenia (11/2), Silver Crescent (7/1), Aiya (12/1)

Verdict

ROCOCO looks like an exciting prospect and she ran well enough last time out at Beverley to suggest there's more to come this year. Neverbeen To Paris produced a creditable effort in defeat last time after a win on return at Beverley and can't be ruled out. The booking of Ryan Moore on Dr Richard Kimble looks significant and it would be no surprise to see the gelding in the shape up after an impressive win last time.
