33/1

200-1 but showed marked improvement on his debut when 7¼L third over C&D (good to firm) recently. Now has something to build on and, while a win today would be a bit of a surprise, you wouldn't rule him out of the frame again.

Went close at 66-1 in a Lingfield novice event (6f, good to firm) last month, and was not far off that level in a Windsor maiden when dropped to 5f last time, when free to post and hanging during the race. Has claims, if he can settle better.

11/4

Beaten just 1¼L in a six-runner Yarmouth maiden (6f, good to firm) last month, and produced a marginally better effort at Newmarket (good) latest. Entitled to be considered, but probably needs to kick on again to break his duck.

25-1, missed the break and never able to threaten on debut at Carlisle (5f, good to firm) last month. However, penny was beginning to drop towards the end there and he is interesting returning over 6f. Considered.

33-1, green and held on debut at Newmarket (6f, good) recently. Can come on for that experience, but will surely have to wait for other days.

Improved for her debut when beaten less than 4L at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) last month. Will need a fair bit more than that to compete here, but interesting jockey booking and worth noting in the market.

28-11OR:

7-1, but beaten almost 8L on debut over C&D in June. Should know more about the game this time, so perhaps she can show some improvement. Stable quiet at present.

9/4

Not beaten far on either of her first two runs at Bath (5f/5½f, firm). Below that level in a reasonably good Newmarket maiden (6f) last time. This is less taxing and with 5lb also claimed, she looks likely to play a big part.

Betting

Forecast

Strict Tempo (9/4), Sky Patrol (11/4), Thierry (6/1), Keyhaven (6/1), Halle's Harbour (8/1), Dandy Lad (8/1), Celsius (20/1), Toro Dorado (33/1), Coach Party (33/1)

Verdict

DANDY LAD has shown sufficient so far to suggest that he can probably win this, with the assistance of Ryan Moore from the saddle, although he will need to be more relaxed about things than he was last time. Strict Tempo should be thereabouts and Sky Patrol should not be far away, with Halle's Harbour a possible improver given that the champion jockey is now booked to partner him.
