Step up to 6f may help after four fair efforts over shoter. Bit disappointing latest when favourite at Goodwood 5f and only fourth of 8 but may bounce back over extra furlong.
Homebred Monsieur Bond gelding whose dam is from a decent sprinting family. Yard in fair form at present but not known for debutant juvenile winners so may prove better for this initial racecourse experience.
Represents last year's winning yard and in-form jockey-trainer combo have impressive 26% strike rate with juveniles. 16000 guineas Havana Gold gelding makes his debut here and wouldn't need to be a world beater to figure prominently.
Stable companion of Audio. £22,000 colt by Dandy Man out of dam who won in listed company over a mile as a juvenile. In touch until weakened 2 out on debut at Windsor 6f and should come on for the run.
Yard in fine form at present but this £15,000 Anjaal colt ran poorly on debut at Chepstow last week when tailed off last of five. Interesting that he is turned out again so quickly and it might be worth watching out for a market move.
23,000 guineas Due Dilligence colt who is half-brother to five winners including stable's own decent Mullionheir. Yard has just 8% strike rate at this track and may need a run or two to reach his peak unless market suggests otherwise.
£10,000 Cable Bay colt out of a maiden dam. Yard having fairly quite time of things of late but have terrific 42% strike rate here with their juveniles, so on that alone has to enter calculations.
£28,000 Elzaam yearling ran a fair race on debut at Salisbury where stayed on steadily after missing break and running green first half of contest. Will know more now and improved display quite likely.
Clodovil filly has finished last in each of her two races so far over 5f and hard to see the extra furlong making a significant difference on that evidence.
Home bred Fast Company filly who looked backward on debut at Windsor in May when ninth of 12 over minimum trip. May need more time.
Helmet filly makes her racecourse bow for up-and-coming yard and interesting that good jockey booked for this initial outing. Worth a glance to see if there is any market move for her.
Helmet filly out of a dam who was of little account. Doesn't make a great deal of appeal on paper and was beaten out of sight when a long last of eight on debut at Windsor last month.
£19,900 Dandy Man filly who made a promising mid-race move on debut at Goodwood last month before fading fast to finish fourth of six. Surely better for experience but surprising if there aren't a few too good for her once again.
