17/2

Multiple bumper/hurdles winner who showed very useful form in latter sphere. Just a respectable effort when third of 5 to Ironclad in a 1¼m maiden at Beverley on Flat debut; Should do better, and has claims despite conceding plenty of weight.

100/1

Finished fourth of seven on belated debut at Thirsk in May, but probably flattered by his proximity there, and beaten a long way at Doncaster last month. Makes minimal appeal once more.

6/4

Brother to Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Awtaad. Expensive to follow to date, but plenty of solid form to his name, and will benefit from the drop to 1¼m after being outstayed over further at Haydock last time.

33/1

Out of a half-sister to smart dual-purpose performer Penhill, but his sales price fell markedly last year, and the fitting of a hood for this belated debut means he's best watched.

39-4OR:
4/5

Made an encouraging debut when a keeping-on second at Newmarket (1¼m) in May, and caught close home after looking likely to win at Lingfield last time. Should make a bold bid to shed his maiden tag at the third attempt.

50/1

Rip Van Winkle half-sister to 6f winner Gallena out of Athasi Stakes winner Emily Blake. Gets weight all round, and needs a market check, but facing no easy task on racecourse debut.

Betting

Forecast

Harrovian (4/5), Alhaazm (6/4), Beyond The Clouds (17/2), Gazton (33/1), Sible Hedingham (50/1), Nineteenrbo'malley (100/1)

Verdict

HARROVIAN has gone close on both starts to date, and looks sure to pick up a maiden before being stepped up in trip. He gets the nod over the frustrating Alhaazm, for all the latter had excuses on testing ground last time. Beyond The Clouds is much the best of the rest, and could be a threat to the aforementioned pair based on his hurdles form.
  1. Harrovian
  2. Alhaazm
