9/2

Both wins have come at Haydock in June/July, latest over 7f, and best not to judge her too harshly on a poor run on nursery debut at Goodwood, when she looked ill-at-ease on the track. Needs to improve to defy current mark, though.

Solid efforts when runner-up at Newbury and Goodwood in May/June, and out of his depth at Royal Ascot. Disappointing trying this trip at Salisbury last time, though, and needs to bounce back.

Built on earlier efforts when winning at Epsom last month, and improved further when third of 17 to More Than This in 7f nursery at Goodwood, staying on well. Should continue to run well.

Third in novices over 6f here and at Haydock to date, but not obviously progressive, and failed to fire when switched to nurseries at Doncaster last time. Others appear stronger again.

Some promise in qualifying runs, and improved a little when a close-up fourth of 5 at Ascot on his nursery debut. That form potentially muddling, and he needs to step up again to be competitive.

Greenback Boogie (5/4), Eyelool (11/4), Pogo (3/1), Cupboard Love (9/2), Pirate (13/2), Swiss Peak (10/1), Rollicking (11/1)

Verdict

EYELOOL has become more professional by the run, and while this is much tougher than the race he won at Epsom last time, he's expected to rise to the occasion. Greenback Boogie ran well in a strong nursery at Goodwood, and looks the most obvious danger, although Pogo would be interesting if getting back to the form of his debut when second to Advertise at Newbury.
