2/1

Shown plenty in two previous starts (both 6f at Thirsk); debut run was highly promising when he just failed, before he won with a bit up his sleeve earlier this month. Wide draw isn't ideal and yet to race over 5f so risk attached this time.

A Lethal Force gelding out of a Green Desert mare, he's a half-brother to Enjazaat, who won over 6f as a juvenile, and Coolagh Magic, who is effective over this trip but is better on the AW than on turf. Will probably be a lot sharper for the run.

Yard has enjoyed a good spell but this Lawman filly was well beaten on debut and the outing lacked sufficient sparkle to give her the benefit of the doubt this time. Others readily preferred.

16/1

Modest efforts posted in her first couple of starts but was more accomplished when third of four at Catterick last time. The filly was beaten a neck and short head; she kept on well near the finish. The wide draw and larger field concerns here.

9/2

Third of five on debut but couldn't muster an extra effort when asked to dig deep near the finish. The runner up from that race was ahead of She's Easyontheeye at Catterick 13 days ago, which leaves this colt with a bit to find.

6/4

A cheap purchase but ran with promise on debut at Newbury last month; was well backed that day but lacked a change of gear when it really mattered. Sure to have come on for the experience though and one to bear in mind from the best of the draw.

50/1

Finished last of four on debut at Catterick and has a good bit to find with She's Easyontheeye on a literal reading of that form; others more appealing despite the handy stalls position.

33/1

7,000 gns yearling who is a half-sister to 5f winner Time And Place, as well as Belle Travers, whose successes came between 7f and 1m2f; her dam did win over 6f as a two-year-old but the yard's record with debutantes leaves a lot to be desired.

40/1

Possibly the most likely winner from the yard's three intended runners at this stage as the Monsieur Bond filly showed a good deal of improvement when dropped back to 5f last time out. The form is poor though and she still needs to improve.

10/1

Wasn't given too hard a time on her debut at Thirsk in May and been given time to get over the run; the betting can guide as to where she stands with stablemate Wade's Magic.

Betting

Forecast

Carmel (6/4), Harry Love (2/1), Kayewhykelly (10/3), Never In Red (9/2), Vintage Times (10/1), Arriba Arriba (10/1), She's Easyontheeye (16/1), Wade's Magic (25/1), Violette Szabo (33/1), Not Another Word (40/1), Sweet Embrace (50/1), Bertie's Princess (66/1)

Verdict

The draw has been unkind to Harry Love but it's very possible he's a step ahead of this lot and might be worth a saver. However, CARMEL showed good speed on her debut at Newbury and is much better berthed to take advantage of any early pace. Kayewhykelly has a chance at the weights if those drawn high aren't put at a disadvantage and, along with Arriba Arriba, merits a betting check. Support for Wade's Magic would also be interesting to note as he makes his debut at a modest level.
