9/4

1m4f Ascot Listed winner first time out found Group Two's at Royal Ascot and Newmarket's July meeting beyond him before shade disappointing back to Listed class latest. Better than that and capable at this level but penalty toughens his task.

11/4

1m5f Group Three and 1m6f Listed winner last season has just run twice this season both in May and after not staying 2m things seemed to go amiss at Newbury. Long absence since and probably had problem but form is the best in the book.

25/1

Beaten out of sight into third latest behind outstanding pair of Group One winners after a break. Yet to win in pattern company (five attempts) or this season (four starts) so form far from compelling.

Won once so far which was her debut for Ralph Beckett. Fourth and third in Group Three's for this yard in first two starts over 1m2f before combination of 1m6f trip and Group Two class found her out latest. This trip and class more suitable.

11/8

Landed fourth handicap of a fine season and first over this trip when winning at Newbury seven days ago. Won with a bit in hand there and more than deserving of a second crack at pattern level and rated 9lb better than when last attempting.

Betting

Forecast

Communique (11/8), Barsanti (9/4), Raheen House (11/4), Maid To Remember (16/1), Cribbs Causeway (25/1)

Verdict

Improving three-year-old COMMUNIQUE will find any chinks in the armoury of his four rivals and he ought to be up to this level now based on his very strong handicap form. Raheen House is the class act in the field but has a bit to prove after a long absence and two sub-par runs this season. Barsanti was below his best latest but is a proven commodity at this level.
  1. Communique
  2. Raheen House
