7/2

Looked like a nice prospect when winning a conditions race at the Meydan carnival and produced an even better effort when winning a Listed event last time out. Needs more again but improvement likely.

5/1

Got the better of Turgenev at Royal Ascot last time but that rival may have done a bit much too soon and he will struggle to confirm the form now far worse off at the weights.

3/1

Course winner of a maiden and landed a second career Listed event when winning at Newmarket last time out. That was a career best and respected here with first-time blinkers another potential source of improvement.

Won a novice race at Nottingham in April but hasn't been up to Listed class in two starts since. More on his plate here.

12/1

Arrives here unbeaten after three wins in novice company. Bare form needs improving on but step up in trip may yield improvement and interesting contender here; wears first-time tongue-tie.

66/1

Won races in Denmark prior to some promising efforts at Meydan this winter. Well beaten in the Swedish Derby last time out and while he's better than that performance, he looks up against it on UK debut.

6/1

Only a novice winner in seven starts but he's been a shade unlucky at times, particularly when sixth of 18 at Royal Ascot when meeting trouble in running multiple times. Behind Duke Of Hazzard last time and no obvious reason he'll reverse that form.

8/1

Hasn't won since his debut success at Naas but produced a career best when he was only narrowly denied at the Curragh last time out. May yet have more to give at this trip.

Lost his first race in the stewards' room but won his subsequent two starts at Newcastle in very easy fashion. More needed against these rivals but first-time blinkers may spark improvement.

Forecast

Duke Of Hazzard (3/1), Art Du Val (7/2), Turgenev (9/2), Biometric (5/1), Momkin (6/1), King Ottokar (6/1), Turjomaan (15/2), Old Glory (8/1), Fifth Position (10/1), I Could Do Better (12/1), Irish Trilogy (66/1)

Verdict
DUKE OF HAZZARD had some of these in behind last time out at Newmarket and he rates as the one to beat in first-time blinkers after that career best effort. Momkin is another to take out of that race while Turgenev is better than the performance at Newmarket. Art Du Val rates as an improver worth respecting.
  1. Duke Of Hazzard
  2. Momkin
  3. Art Du Val
