8/1

Showed immediate promise when winning here over 6f on his debut as a two-year-old (bred for much longer trips). Ran well enough on his return to action after 9 months off over this distance; remains with potential.

Newcomer who cost 180,000 guineas as a yearling and is closely related to three winners including the smart winner at up to 7f Perfect Tribute. Market may well provide the best guide to this one's chance.

Has two starts under his belt so far and he's produced promising efforts both times. Best of the newcomers on his debut he ran to a similar level next time with both those efforts coming over 1m; likely to do better over this trip.

Given a stiff task on his debut his pedigree makes a fair amount appeal and he's sure to step forward from the level he showed on his initial outing (needed this run). Looks the sort to do better in the long term and may need some time (had wind op).

Frankel colt (450,000 guineas yearling) who is a half-brother to several winners including the very smart Berkshire. Dan was a winner at up to 1m2f; looks a very smart pedigree and sure to take a hand in this.

Offered something to work on from his debut (still very green) and ran to a similar level on his next start also over 1m2f. Looks a stayer in the making and another couple of furlongs may be needed to show him at his best.

€100,000 yearling by Lope De Vega and a half-brother to 7f winner Glorious Star. Unlikely to be able to match some of these on debut and best watched for now.

Just the one run to his name so far when the stable's second string (but still well backed) at Newmarket over 1m. Looked green and inexperienced though but will have learnt and come on from that experience; should do better here.

7/2

Stepped up in trip by 2f from his debut last time and showed improved form looking as though this trip really suited him despite still showing some keenness. Bound to come on again and looks one for the shortlist.

39-2OR:
125/1

One of two runners for the yard in this and clearly not much was expected on his debut over this trip when starting at 100/1. Didn't shape with an awful lot of promise and needs more time and destined for handicaps down the line.

38-11OR:

Both runs at Goodwood over this trip have shown a glimmer of promise but hard to recommend in this company. Of far more interest once she has a mark for handicaps.

Half-sister to three winners including the smart 7f winner Parfait and presented with a decent test on her debut. May well need this run starting out with a few very decent and promising types in opposition.

Betting

Forecast

Mister Ambassador (2/1), Armed (11/4), Monoxide (7/2), Daisy Chain (6/1), Orange Suit (8/1), Ben Vrackie (12/1), Astromachia (25/1), Dazzling Rock (25/1), Al Kherb (33/1), Skill Set (33/1), Lyn's Secret (100/1), Tin Fandango (125/1), Ensign Ewart (150/1)

Verdict

There are quite a few in this that have made promising starts to their careers and it looks a decent novice event that will produce winners. MONOXIDE is taken to build on his two starts so far and make it third time lucky having shown improved form at Sandown last time. Armed will be suited by this trip and looks another improver along with Orange Suit (the only winner in the field) and Daisy Chain. Dazzling Rock may yet need further than this but should be respected along with what look to be on pedigree a useful set of newcomers headed by Ben Vrackie and Al Kherb.
