39-3OR: 106

Unbeaten in his first two juvenile starts (winner of the 7f Listed Flying Scotsman Stakes at Doncaster), he was unable to lay a glove on the likes of Too Darn Hot and Anthony Van Dyck in the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes; tongue-tie on for 3yo debut.

A winner on his first three juvenile starts, including when going away at the finish in the 7f Group 2 Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood (good); not so effective thereafter; finished 12th of 19 (40/1) to Magna Grecia in the 2000 Guineas.

39-0OR: 100CD

Kingman colt; promising in novice company to date, winning two of his three starts (7f-1m) - drew well clear with Land Of Legends at Yarmouth (1m); similarly to his stablemate Lord North he steps up in grade, but could well prove capable.

39-0OR: D

Dubawi colt; half-brother to the 1m2f winner Chronicles; 2-2 in 1m novice contests (Redcar and Newcastle); difficult to draw anything conclusive other than to simply state that he proved his well-being at Newcastle; stablemate of King Of Comedy.

39-0OR: D

Kingman colt (cost €650,000 as a yearling); didn't hit the racecourse until this season, but is swiftly making up for lost time; hacked up at short odds at Nottingham (1m+ novice) after a most promising Newbury debut third; stiffer task.

Footstepsinthesand colt (cost 180,000gns as a yearling); has plenty of experience and is a course winner (7f, good); runner-up in Newmarket Listed races (1m1f-1m2f) on both starts this season, bustling up the exciting UAE Jewel latest.

Betting

Forecast

King Of Comedy (3/1), Sangarius (3/1), Walkinthesand (9/2), Dark Vision (8/1), Bell Rock (8/1), Lord North (9/1), Roseman (12/1), Raakib Alhawa (12/1)

Verdict

Sangarius wears a tongue-tie for his first start since finishing fourth to the brilliant Too Darn Hot in Newmarket's Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes, and merits respect now stepping up in trip. Walkinthesand has already proved conclusively that he has trained on for Richard Hannon with a pair of solid second-placed efforts in Newmarket Listed contests (Fielden Stakes/Newmarket Stakes), giving the supporters of UAE Jewel a scare latest. However, in an open race where the majority will find ample winning opportunities as the Flat season progresses, the soundest advice is to take a chance on the ultra-progressive KING OF COMEDY finding the required improvement.
