Cost just £1,500 at the Ascot sales last June (had been priced up at £75,000 as a yearling) and made no impact on belated debut here last month. Hard to make a case out for supporting the gelding.

Won on debut at Newbury and needed every yard of the 7f trip that day; wasn't so good when upped to a mile at Ascot last month and plenty to prove this time.

6,000 gns foal, he's a half-brother to 6f-1m2f winner Pasaka Bear and Ashazuri, a winner over the same distances. Not a stand out pedigree, the betting can guide.

Made no impact on debut and has switched yards since. Fitting of a hood is an ominous sign. Best watched.

Ran well on debut at Wolverhampton but didn't go forward when switched to turf at Leicester in May. Big improvement needed.

150,000 gns yearling that has the benefit of two previous starts; debut run was promising but raced too keenly at Windsor last time. The drop in trip might help here; worth a betting check.

Debuts for a new yard after two moderate efforts for Mark Tompkins last summer; big step forward needed on debut for new connections.

Well beaten in both starts last season and looks an unlikely winner here.

Is being kept busy and now having his third race since the middle of May; looks the type to do better in handicaps after this.

Caught the eye with early speed on debut at Goodwood but didn't get home that day. Races over the same trip but needs to settle better. The betting can guide as to how much the Camacho filly has thrived since.

1/2

130,000 yearling that has shown a good deal of promise in both previous starts; still learning but going the right way. Yard is flying and jockey booking could hardly be more positive; well worth considering.

Betting

Forecast

Tapisserie (1/2), Desert Land (3/1), Reynolds (3/1), Posted (7/2), Quick (8/1), Midas Spirit (14/1), Strict (20/1), Bear Force One (25/1), Rebecke (25/1), Make Haste Slowly (25/1), Corrida De Toros (33/1), Garrison Law (33/1), Pentimento (33/1), Closer Than Close (50/1), King of The Ring (66/1), Chizzi (66/1), Yet Another (100/1)

Verdict

A chance is taken on REYNOLDS building on what was a very promising debut at Newbury last month (readily took the measure of both Posted and Strict on that occasion). Set to encounter similar conditions over the same trip, the portents for a bold effort are strong. Tapisserie is an obvious danger with Ryan Moore now in the plate and the fillies allowance could be a vital tool when push comes to shove. Midas Spirit and Desert Land also looks worthy candidates and should be monitored in the betting.
