Declaration of War colt who looked badly in need of the experience when down the pack at Windsor on May debut. Likely to need more time yet.

Much his best effort to date when third in a soft-ground novice at Goodwood in May. May have needed the run after a break last time, and claims if back to peak form now.

Havana Gold gelding who was much improved from his first effort when 2¼L fifth of 10 to Hasanoanda in 1m novice at Wetherby last time. Respected, for all drop in trip may not be ideal.

Half-brother to three winners, and didn't shape badly when 10¾L third of 9 to Margub in similar event at Chelmsford last month. Had to race wide there, and may well do better, although does have to.

Teofilo half-brother to 2-y-o 1m winner Baashiq. Well clear of the others when sixth of 12 over 7f at Chelmsford last month, and type to improve a good deal for that introduction. Tongue tie he wore on debut retained.

Bred for speed, but didn't show much on his racecourse bow at Kempton over 7f in June, and easy enough to put a line through his chances again.

Frankel half-brother to smart sprint handicapper Hoof It. Hinted at ability on first start at Windsor, but well beaten at Thirsk last time, and blinkers reached for now.

Half-brother to Oaks winner Dancing Rain, and cost 500,000 gns as a yearling; disappointed on first two starts, but much better signs when close second under an inexperienced rider at Kempton latest, and looks ready to deliver now.

Gelded son of Sixties Icon who is a full-brother to 1¼m winner Mulsanne Chase. Makes belated debut for yard in red-hot form, so folly to ignore, and market should prove useful.

Exceed And Excel half-sister to useful winners Oh Goodness Me (1m), Eradicate (1¼m-1½m) and Colima (1m½f). Yard can ready a newcomer, so worth a market check on initial appearance.

Quite an expensive purchase at €130,000, but showed more temperament than ability when unseating her rider here on debut. Hard to have confidence after that display.

Betting

Forecast

Muraahin (2/1), Blue Willow (9/2), Sharg (11/2), Calendimaggio (6/1), Young Bernie (8/1), Lily Of Year (14/1), Distant Applause (16/1), Rise Hall (20/1), Deliverance (20/1), Boston T Party (66/1), Billy Bot (66/1), Purple Paddy (200/1)

Verdict

SHARG was a huge eye-catcher at Kempton last time under an inexperienced claimer, and while he showed a tendency to hang off the bend there, he makes plenty of appeal with Ryan Moore taking over the steering now. Muraahin shaped pretty well at Chelmsford on his debut, and ought to improve, so needs consideration, along with Calendimaggio, who may have been rusty when below his best last time.
