4/1

Disappointed on his return to turf and has looked far more effective on a synthetic surface so far. His previous Kempton second sets the standard and the stable won this last year.

5/2

70,000 gns son of Lope de Vega who took a nice step forward from his debut when winning over 7f here on his second start. Overcame trouble in the run and more likely at this trip. Holds a Derby entry.

Showed promise on debut and duly improved to win over a furlong shorter here last time. Form only looks moderate but he hit the line strongly and this extra distance will suit.

Did well to get as close as he did when his saddle slipped at Chester on his second start. That was a much better effort after showing little on debut but he's bred to improve as he goes up in trip. More required but place possibilities.

47,000 gns son of Pour Moi and half-brother to a 7f winner. Holds a Derby entry but was well beaten at long odds behind Fintas on debut and remains best watched.

Son of Dawn Approach who cost 135,000 gns as a foal. Powerful stable having a quiet season and is bred to need further in time. Worth a precautionary market check.

Gelded son of Dutch Art who cost 20,000 gns as a yearling and blew the start on debut before paying late for making up the lost ground. Needs to find sizeable improvement to be involved.

Scat Daddy colt whose sales price rose to €320,000 as a 2-y-o, and a half-brother to several winners out of a winning half-sister to Prix Morny winner Elusive City. Withdrawn at the start on vet's advice on previous intended debut when fancied.

Gelded son of Campanologist who cost €14,000 as a foal and 50,000 gns as a juvenile. Stable a bit quiet at present and probably one to watch on debut.

Gelded son of Camelot who fetched €80,000 as a yearling and is a half-brother to a Listed-placed performer in Italy. Always well behind on debut and hard to recommend. Stable also runs Il Capitano.

8/1

Well bred New Approach filly who was very promising on debut but didn't improve on it when third over 7f here. Did stumble at the start there so possible she could kick on again with extra distance likely to suit.

By Cape Cross out of a Singspiel mare so likely to need a bit further in time. Represents a powerful stable who can ready one on debut so worth a check in the betting.

Betting

Forecast

King Ademar (13/8), Fintas (5/2), Daafr (4/1), Mawahib (8/1), Balladeer (12/1), Il Capitano (14/1), Wanaasah (16/1), Young Merlin (33/1), Hydroplane (66/1), Irish Art (66/1), Gennaro (100/1), Pico Boulevard (100/1)

Verdict

Daafr has had five runs but his two on the AW are far superior so he could easily bounce back on this surface and has been tried at Group 2 level in his short career. FINTAS is only likely to improve as he moves up in trip and the manner of his breakthrough success was eye-catching in overcoming trouble and showing a change of gears. Balladeer also will be suited by this extra distance but this does require more while Gennaro shouldn't be dismissed and would be interesting if a big price. Mawahib has the form to be involved if finding as much improvement as is likely from her rivals while King Ademar looks the pick of the newcomers.
