16/1

Won his first two starts of this campaign on soft ground but hasn't been as effective up in class since from his revised mark. Probably did too much too soon at Doncaster last time and it's still early days so he's not one to rule out.

Consistent sort who has won two of his last three starts. Form of his most recent success not done any favours by runner-up and stablemate since. 7lb rise for his win could prove harsh but booking of Moore is a plus.

Looked like a smart prospect as a juvenile but things haven't worked out for him this campaign up in class. Handicap mark is on the slide and not ruled out back in trip given this is easier than some of his recent tests.

Has run with credit on each of his six starts. Won at Sandown and backed that up with a fine effort in defeat at Royal Ascot. That looked like a decent contest and while 6lb higher for that, there's no reason he won't go well again.

Runner-up to Corgi at Sandown (1lb better off at the weights here) and built on that with a win at Salisbury last month. Third has come out and won since from that contest and he's versatile from a tactics perspective.

Well beaten on his only start as a juvenile but he's returned in good form this year, typically for this yard, progressing with each start. Nothing wrong with a 5lb rise for his latest win and every chance he's still improving.

Only moderate form as a juvenile but returned with a win at Wolverhampton this year. Bounced back from a couple of below par efforts with a better effort over C&D last time out in a four-runner race but this is more competitive and he's 1lb higher.

Improved from debut to win a Salisbury maiden last month. Not disgraced in a novice event at Doncaster without setting the world alight and may do better on handicap debut here for a yard in good form and a jockey that rides this course well.

Runner-up in a maiden here last month but well beaten on handicap debut at Newbury last time out. Yard have been below their usual standard this campaign and others preferred.

Improved from her debut to run well on next two starts and she's the type to improve for the step up in trip on handicap debut here. Worth a market check.

Betting

Forecast

Corgi (5/2), Infrastructure (7/2), Making Miracles (4/1), Polish (8/1), Drill (8/1), Desert Wind (8/1), Baileys Excelerate (10/1), Lynwood Gold (14/1), Proschema (16/1), Soto Sizzler (20/1), Bartholomeu Dias (25/1), Miss Latin (33/1)

Verdict

CORGI ran a huge race in the King George V Stakes Handicap at Royal Ascot and while he's been given a 6lb rise for his latest outing, that's deserved and there's more to come. Mark Johnston has a fine record in this race and Baileys Excelerate is better than he showed last time when finishing behind the selection. Miss Latin makes her handicap debut here and is worth a market check while Polish represents connections in flying form at present.
