Outsider in two starts to date, most recently when 100/1 eighth of 14 at Windsor (1m, good to firm). Well beaten that day and remains readily opposable.
Equiano colt and is the first foal out of an unraced mare. Pedigree doesn't make much appeal and this looks a tough ask on debut.
No improvement from debut when 18L seventh at Chelmsford (7f, standard) at the start of the month. Likely to be out of his depth and likely outsider.
Showed a high level of form to be sent off well fancied for the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot. Well beaten 17th that day and was demoted to second after hanging badly at Windsor last time. Remains the one to beat.
Homebred by Nathaniel out of 6f winning mare. Half-Brother to admirable Group 2-winning sprinter Take Cover and looks to have a speedy pedigree. This trip may irk his stamina and looks a long-term prospect.
Bombed out on debut for new yard, finishing 84L last of seven in 1m2f Leicester novice two days ago. Plenty to prove now and place claims at best tin weak contest.
Attractive pedigree but flopped on two starts to date. Most recent 16L third at York (7f, good to firm) offers little appeal and best watched on stable debut.
100/1 for both starts in her career and has been down the field in both, including when 16L ninth of ten at Windsor (1m, good to firm) in early July. This is an incredibly tough ask.
Well-bred Lope De Vega filly who is a half sister to useful handicapper/Group 3 winner GM Hopkins. Showed some promise on debut at Chelmsford (1m, standard) and likely to offer some opposition to the favourite. Trip?
Mishbehaved in the preliminaries and looked green when well beaten ninth on debut at Chelmsford (7f, standard). Out of her depth in this.
Unlikely to have improved on her debut run when 9L third in 7f Chester novice on latest start. That form looks ordinary but enough to merit each-way consideration.
