Daredevil colt, cost $14,000 yearling. Won a Hamilton maiden on debut but hard to imagine that form is anything special and he faces a tough task up at Listed level on just his second start.
Mustajeeb colt, cost 27,000 gns as a Breeze-up purchase. Caused an upset when the outsider of three on debut at Musselburgh. Would need a giant step forward to play a part here though.
War Command colt, cost 5,000 gns yearling. Half-brother to six winners including Listed winning juvenile. Respectable debut effort in a maiden in France and won well at Brighton next time but lots more needed here.
Only narrowly denied on debut and made no mistake when winning at Beverley last month, despite still looking green. More progress on the cards here for a yard that do well with juveniles.
Only just touched off on debut and the form of his win next time out at Hamilton was franked by the runner-up (Taxiwala) winning well subsequently. Bred for further and more needed here but hard to knock what he's done so far.
Iffraaj colt related to some talented types over a bit further. Very impressive when beating a subsequent winner at Carlisle on debut and not one to underestimate here with further progress on the cards and Dettori up.
Placed on first two starts and while he didn't need to improve to win at Bath on third run, he was very impressive that day, winning by 8L. May want fast ground on that evidence though.
Got the better of re-opposing Taxiwala (has won by 5L subsequently) at Doncaster on debut but well beaten next time out at Chester and that race has taken a couple of knocks since from a form perspective. More needed.
Runner-up to a fellow classy Godolphin inmate on debut at Wolverhampton and still looked green when winning a 12 runner maiden at Leicester. Sure to have more to come here.
Mayson colt, cost £60,000 as a yearling. Dam a juvenile winner. Professional performance when winning on debut but that form hasn't worked out well since. Will need plenty more in this company.
Maiden winner at Naas in March but two subsequent efforts at that venue suggest he's going to struggle here. Needs to settle better.
Well beaten in a Listed race on debut and looked like the winner for a long way at Navan before folding late in the day. Stiff finish of this track would have to be a concern with that still fresh in the memory.
Good third in a decent race at York on debut and showed a good attitude to get up at Beverley next time. That looked a decent race for the grade and he can go well again here.
Starspangledbanner colt, cost 52,000 gns as a yearling. Form of his debut win at Salisbury has taken a few knocks and that makes him vulnerable here on just his second start, markedly up in class.
Runner-up in both of his first couple of starts behind Iva Reflection (debut) and then Glasvegas. Won a three-runner contest well enough next time but looks vulnerable with a more exposed profile than several.
Arrives here unbeaten in two starts. Form of his debut win at Nottingham franked and got the better of Fort Myers next time who ran well in the Coventry on Tuesday (fourth). That makes him a live player here.
Yard have had success at this meeting and this colt has won one of his three starts in France. Any softening of conditions would be in his favour but still has a bit to find on form. Wears first-time cheekpieces.
Made it two from two on AW at Kempton in April but well beaten at Chester next time out and beaten 2L in Listed company at Sandown last time. More exposed than some.
Distorted Humour filly, cost $200,000 as a yearling. Dam closely related to a US Grade 1 winner. Produced a smart debut at Belmont Park when winning with plenty in hand. Takes on the boys now but yard have enjoyed success in this race.
Karakontie filly, cost $365,000 as a two-year-old. Half-sister to two winners and dam a juvenile sprint winner. Very impressive on debut, winning with plenty in hand. Very different ground here but has to be respected for this yard.
Has been running okay in defeat in four starts for Archie Watson but hardly arrives here with the sort of profile needed for this race and others preferred.
