29-2OR:
14/1

Ran only a fair race on debut here last time out, but showed signs of greenness there, and this stable often does well with its juvenile runners.

11/4

Ran better than the form figure suggests on debut, especially as he was keen in the early stages. Has had wind surgery since with the tongue strap applied, and should go well.

29-2OR:
9/2

Signs of progression up to this step up his second start last time out, but that level of form still leaves him with a bit to find here, and further improvement is required.

29-2OR:
2/1

Back up narrowly in trip to this distance having gone close at Brighton last time out. Sticks in novice company here on return to AW, and showed he handles this surface when third two starts back; leading claims.

Mastercraftsman gelding who cost 38,000gns as a yearling. Related to a few winners but bred for a bit further than this in time.

Dragon Pulse newcomer who cost 3,000gns as a yearling. Has been gelded for this debut and yard hardly known for their juveniles.

Didn't improve in the way the form figures seem to suggest between her two starts to date, and much better required today.

28-11OR:
16/1

Couldn't improve on debut effort when down the field at Leicester on her second start last time out. Hampered at one point there but even taking that into consideration, first-time blinkers need to have a considerable effect.

28-11OR:
10/1

Didn't enjoy the best of runs round on debut at Kempton last time out, but still needs to find plenty of improvement on that form to play a part here.

Foxwedge filly who cost 20,000gns as a yearling. Her dam's first foal and probably best watched unless there's plenty of money for her.

Betting

Forecast

Revich (2/1), Prince of Rome (11/4), Quiet Endeavour (9/2), Muthhila (10/1), Sylvia's Mother (10/1), Aegean Mist (11/1), Be Proud (14/1), Dolly Dupree (16/1), Royal Guild (28/1), Salmon Fishing (40/1)

Verdict

More experienced than any of the rest of these, this could be REVICH's chance to get off the mark. He ran his best race to date when second at Brighton last time out, and in a race that lacks a standout contender based on what they've achieved to date, he looks the one to beat with the return to the AW unlikely to be an issue. Richard Hughes' Prince Of Rome and recent C&D sixth Be Proud looks the likeliest dangers to the selection.
