Not disgraced on handicap debut at Lingfield last time out when running to a similar level he did during novice races.

Lived up to his name when an unlucky loser at Haydock last time out. Step up in trip unlikely to be an issue and interesting to see this top jockey taking the ride for the first time.

Off the mark at Nottingham last time out and up 4lb as a result. Should be capable of operating off this mark and sounder surface unlikely to be an issue.

Turf debut for this winner at Wolverhampton two starts back. 4lb higher now and also has his stamina to prove over this longer trip.

Only win so far came over this trip, but that was on heavy ground. Needs to prove himself on a much faster surface, and 3lb above that previous winning mark.

Off the mark on handicap/stable debut at Beverley last time out and up 4lb. Shaped as if he should stay this far, and he's one for the shortlist.

Hasn't shown much in three starts in novice company so far, and 7lb claimer keeps the ride here. An interesting prospect off this opening mark.

Betting

Forecast

Eyecatcher (6/5), Dagueneau (7/2), Elysees (5/1), Kittileo (7/1), Mythological (14/1), Master Grey (18/1), Duration (33/1), Masters Apprentice (33/1)

Verdict

EYECATCHER was exactly that when running very well in second at Haydock last time out, and with blinkers added for the first time and Ryan Moore booked for the ride, this son of Camelot can get off the mark at the sixth attempt off just a 2lb higher mark with the longer trip likely to suit. Dangers include last time out winners Dagueneau , who shouldn't have an issue with this sounder surface, and Jane Chapple-Hyam''s Mythological.
