49-10OR:

Two modest efforts posted last year and likely he'll need to find a fair bit of improvement now he takes on younger rivals.

Looks the safer option of the stable's three runners (also send out Bird Of Wonder and Twilighting) and not much to find if building on his latest start when second at Chepstow last month. Runs from the same mark here.

Finished last of seven on debut at Kempton in March; big improvement needed here.

Won well on debut (the form doesn't look anything too special) but was then held in a Listed race last month. Dangerous to underestimate back in this sort of company and has to merit consideration.

Two modest efforts registered in France need to be bettered; probably best watched on British debut.

Kept decent company in three starts last season; more now needed and has been gelded since finishing mid division in a valuable sales race at Doncaster last September. Interesting if supported in the betting.

Well beaten on debut and while he might find the step back in trip more to his liking, he does have a lot to find.

52,000 gns yearling; the gelding has 6f and 7f winners in his pedigree, which suggests he'll more than likely be better with this debut run behind him, but still worth a betting check.

His dam won over this trip on turf and went on to win over a mile on the AW later in her career; the betting can guide but others make a tad more appeal at this stage.

Shown a good level of consistency so far and has coped well with this trip up to now. Interesting that he's kept to this level rather than tacking handicaps. Shortlisted on debut for his new yard.

Lost his action on debut and been well held twice sine; plenty to prove now.

Equiano filly out of a half-sister to decent sprinter Futoon; likely to need the experience but one to note with an eye on the future.

38-11OR:

Modest efforts posted so far and looks the third in line from the stable's trio of contenders. At least qualifies for a handicap mark after this.

Betting

Forecast

Far Above (8/13), Johnny Reb (4/1), Crantock Bay (5/1), Real Smooth (7/1), Great Midge (8/1), Great Suspense (25/1), Equipped (25/1), River Dawn (50/1), Twilighting (50/1), Dutch Story (50/1), Hour Of The Dawn (66/1), Hidden Dream (66/1), Bird of Wonder (100/1), Vallachy (100/1)

Verdict

REAL SMOOTH is open to further progress over this trip and, given that he comes into this on the back of his best effort to date, he looks worth persevering with this time. Far Above takes a drop in class and can give the selection plenty to think about, while Johnny Reb is a consistent type that can also force his way into the picture. Great Suspense and Crantock Bay complete the shortlist.
  1. Real Smooth
  2. Far Above
  3. Johnny Reb
