410-0OR: 77
7/2

Has been unlucky to bump into better rivals in two weakly contested novice events. Should find an opening soon and an official rating of 77 suggests he ought to be good enough to land a standard maiden around here..

132-rated hurdler made the frame in a Polytrack bumper on his first start for this yard. Produced an improved effort over hurdles last time and worth a look in the market on Flat debut.

Bought out of Ed Walker's yard for 56,000 gns last autumn having run to a consistent level over various trips. Tackles 1m4f for the first time and there is stamina in the pedigree. An official mark of 80 sets the standard.

Had shown some promise in bumpers but only seventh of eight on Flat debut over this trip and she may have too much to find.

Tailed off in two bumpers at odds of 100/1. May appreciate the shorter trip but highly doubtful she is good enough.

Half-brother to five winners but he has hardly beaten a rival so far and this is an above average maiden for the track.

3/1

Has been entered for races such as the Derby and Royal Lodge so he is clearly held in some regard. Just denied by a fitter rival last time and that winner is now rated 77. Any improvement for the run and the extra 2f will make him hard to beat.

Beautifully bred son of Dansili out of an Oaks placed half-sister to Galileo and Sea The Stars among others. Looked green on both starts last year and the market should tell us if he has wintered well enough to take this.

Nathaniel colt who has been noted for signs of temperament rather than the ability that will be required to grab a race such as this.

Champs Elysees half-brother to Guineas winner Galileo Gold. Caught the eye on his Goodwood debut but failed to back that up next time. With hindsight the debut form was not strong, but on the plus side the yard have been in good form.

Phoenix Reach half-sister to decent middle-distance performer Lorelina. Has shown signs of greenness on both starts as well as the need for a trip such as this. Should not be long in winning but there are others in this who have achieved more.

Forecast

Palladium (11/8), Emirates Empire (3/1), Allieyf (7/2), Armed (10/1), Message (11/1), And The New (12/1), Luck Of Clover (25/1), Nathanielhawthorne (50/1), Sorbet (50/1), Samson's Reach (50/1), Blue Beirut (66/1), Western Dixie (100/1)

Verdict

This looks a decent race for it's type at this venue and the winner will have to run to a mark of around 80 to win it. Armed is already officially rated at that level and connections will be hopeful he can make an early return on their investment and provide his trainer with a first winner. He is giving away a fitness advantage to Allieyf and EMIRATES EMPIRE who have both shown enough to win a race of this nature. The selection is held in high regard at home judged on previous entries and he was just foiled by a fitter rival last time. The longer trip and slightly slower surface here promise to see him improve further and the stable won this in 2016 with a similar sort.
