39-3OR: 98
12/1

Caused a 33-1 shock on his sole juvenile run over on the Rowley Mile over 7f; not disgraced on his return trying Listed level, 1m, Sandown (looked in need of the experience). Outclassed at Group 1 level on his latest start, still not settling fully.

10/1

Twice a winner as a juvenile his best performance coming when taking a 1m Listed contest at Deauville. Creditable efforts in several Group events this year doing best of those ridden prominently in the Jersey Stakes; respected but looks exposed.

7/2

Three solid efforts last year as a 2yo at 7f with a win in a Newbury novice his best effort. Stepped up a gear on that form when second in the Craven Stakes followed by respectable efforts ion 2000 Guineas/Jersey Stakes; one to consider.

39-3OR: 103
10/1

Dual handicap winner this year producing much improved efforts over 7f before being drawn on the wrong side in the Britannia over 1m. Still has potential; trainer prefers this engagement rather than a York handicap on Saturday, not to be overlooked.

11/8

Dual juvenile winner who has steadily improved this year nearly landing the Britannia last time under a positive/confident Dettori ride (may have not be used efficiently). Positive tactics could once again be on the agenda here back up in class.

3/1

The higher rated of the two runners from this yard he's not won this season (won both 2yo starts over 6f); produced some very creditable efforts though. Last two starts have been his best work; finished a smart fourth last time; leading player.

Betting

Forecast

Turgenev (11/8), Urban Icon (3/1), Momkin (7/2), Duke Of Hazzard (10/1), Motafaawit (10/1), Bell Rock (12/1)

Verdict

An interesting contest where all of the sextet can be given some sort of chance but it’s one of the two Hannon runners that gets the vote with URBAN ICON having performed best of those (narrowly) to have run in the Jersey Stakes last time. Behind him at Royal Ascot were Duke Of Hazzard who is now tried in first-time blinkers and Momkin who also trailed in his wake in the 2000 Guineas although his second in the Craven, if repeated would give him a shot here. Turgenev would have caused bookmaking pandemonium if he had held on in the Britannia, another front running effort looks on the cards in a grade he should be comfortable in. The other Hannon runner Motafaawit should not be ignored.
