Made the perfect start to his career when winning at Haydock over 6f last month maintaining the record of his family (dam won Queen Mary). Looked a very useful sort on that occasion and should improve for this extra distance.

Took three attempts to get off the mark but appeared suited by the firmer surface than before at Ripon (6f). Put his experience to good use to beat a field of newcomers but this will be far harder; trainer has had juvenile winners at this meeting.

Respected given his connections but has a fair task at this level on the form that he's shown so far. Failed to progress from his debut at the Curragh last time (6f) when not knocked about but still has plenty to do at this level.

Raced only over 5f so far and looked each time as though needed further to fulfil his potential. Tongue-tie goes on for the first-time but he has a lot to do competing at this level for the first time.

Young trainer does well with his juveniles and he looks to have a useful sort on his hands here after he made an impressive winning debut at Carlisle (6f). Likely to continue his upward progression but takes a big step up in class here.

French challenger from the yard that won the Albany last year and he's shown useful form so far at up to 6f winning both his starts. His last run looks a strong piece of form (two next time out winners behind) and respected up in trip.

Promising second on his debut at Yarmouth (6f) to Legends Of War (expensive breeze-up purchase) when starting favourite. Showed his inexperience on that occasion and will know more this time around; open to improvement.

One of three fillies in the race for the trainer having improved to win on her third start putting her experience to good use but improving on her first two runs to an extent. That was her first try at 7f but she will need more again here.

Improved on her debut second at Newmarket to win on the AW at Kempton landing the odds in the style of a useful contender. There looked to be more to come that day and she'll need to come on again; first try at 7f.

Sets the standard here having created a real impression on her debut run at Goodwood winning by 6L looking very professional for a newcomer. Travelled well and quickened clear in a very good time; trainer has a good record in this race.

Winner of two of her three starts and already has a decision over Beyond Reason from their debut runs at Newmarket. Two starts since haven't quite matched that level but no doubt she's a useful filly who form part of a powerful team for the trainer.

Betting

Forecast

Natalie's Joy (5/4), Beyond Reason (5/1), Arthur Kitt (13/2), On A Session (9/1), Nate The Great (11/1), Cardini (14/1), San Donato (14/1), Aussie View (18/1), Duke Of Hazzard (25/1), New Winds (25/1), Azor Ahai (50/1)

Verdict

The fillies finished 1-2 in this last year (Derby winner Masar back in third) and they look to have a good chance of landing this again via the Mark Johnston trained NATALIE'S JOY who made a lasting impression on her debut at Goodwood leaving a good field trailing in her wake. Beyond Reason may well be able to reverse the Newmarket form with New Winds to give the ladies another 1-2 having blitzed her field on the AW last time. Arthur Kitt will need to improve to take a hand but given his smart pedigree he can’t be left out of this although the best of the boys may well be San Donato who ran into a very smart type at Yarmouth on debut. Cardini and Nate The Great are also worthy of respect.
