Weighed In
Age: 2|  Weight: 9-6  |  J: A Mullen |  T: M Walford|  D

6,000 guineas Coach House gelding looks to have been very bough following a shock 20/1 win on debut in a decent York maiden. Very much sets the standard here but has to defy his winner's penalty.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-0  |  J: Jason Hart |  T: Miss Gay Kelleway

14,000 guineas Acclamation colt didn't show a huge amount on debut at Yarmouth when well beaten and seems likely to benefit from a litle more time. Hard to fancy.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-0  |  J: B A Curtis |  T: K R Burke|  BF

£10,000 Power colt whose dam was quick enough to win over 5f as a juvenile. Fair second on debut at Leicester in May over 5f and again found one too good when favourite at Hamilton last time. Step up in trip may help the cause.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-13  |  J: Connor Beasley |  T: M Dods

Nicely bred Canford Cliffs colt who was bumped early on at Carlisle on debut in May and never recovered. Has been given a little time and may know more about his job now. Yard excel with sprinting types.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-13  |  J: D Tudhope |  T: Roger Fell|  OR: 68

Good runner-up on debut at Chelmsford over 5f before outclassed at HQ next time. Third in Beverley claimer where claimed for £8000. Showed speed to lead at Ripon on first start for current yard last time, keeping on to finish third.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-12  |  J: Harry Russell |  T: B Smart

Cheap £800 Fountain Of Youth gelding who has shown little aptitude in two starts so far, including when last of nine in a Redcar seller last time. Very hard to fancy.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-11  |  J: P Hanagan |  T: R A Fahey

£20,000 Gutaifan filly who is half-sister to a few speedy performers. Represents top yard and wouldn't need to be a world beater to figure on her racecourse debut.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-10  |  J: T Eaves |  T: K A Ryan

From first crop of smart Free Eagle who has already produced three individual winners. Half-sister to two winners at up to 7f so has interesting pedigree and may not be far away if ready to roll.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-9  |  J: Faye McManoman |  T: N Tinkler

Yard enjoying a fine spell this summer. 12,000 guineas Mukhadram filly out of dam who won at 7f as a juvenile. Worth a market check given fine stable form at present.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-9  |  J: R P Downey |  T: D O'Meara

Represents last year's winning stable but ran far too freely on debut at Pontefract last week before fading fast, finishing last of seven. Needs to settle to have any hope of figuring here.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-8  |  J: P J McDonald |  T: Micky Hammond

Exceeded expectations when 66/1 second on debut at Ripon last month but failed to build on that when only fifth on return visit there two weeks later. Has some ability but might be one more for sprint nurseries later in the term.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-7  |  J: Paula Muir |  T: L A Mullaney

€4,000 Free Eagle filly whois a half-sister to winner over 1m3f. Pedigree suggests middle-distances will be her trip so will do very well to figure here on her racecourse debut.


Captain Moorhouse
Weight: 9-2|  Age: 2
T: D H Brown  J: P Mulrennan


Magical Max (5/4), Spring Bloom (3/1), What A Business (9/2), Sweet Joanna (10/1), Captain Moorhouse (10/1), Inductive (20/1), Azure World (20/1), Just Jean (22/1), Imperial Eagle (28/1), Hands Down (50/1), Mr Bowjangles (50/1), Schumli (66/1), Jakodobro (100/1)

Of those with previous form York winner MAGICAL MAX stands out having beaten some promising types on debut. Spring Bloom is best of the rest with form but doesn't look anything special thus far, so newcomers Azure World and Sweet Joanna, who both represent good yards and ar bred to like this trip, look potential dangers if they are ready to perform on debut. Any market move for another newcomer, Hands Down, would also be well worth noting.

  2. Sweet Joanna
