4/11

Created good impression when bolting up on debut at Chelmsford in November beating a couple of subsequent winners. Not seen since though and has clearly had issues. Has to give weight away but represents top trainer and has to be on the shortlist.

7/1

Built on promising third on debut at Woverhampton in May with gutsy win over extended mile in soft groud at Beverley last time. Going the right way and yard is in form so should be in the thick of it once again.

American bred Hallucinate colt; half brother to two winners. In-form yard not known for novice winners with poor 5% overall stirke rate so may be best watched on debut.

Garswood colt out of dam who won over 5f as a juvenile. Doesn't jump out on pedigree for this debut run and may need a litle more time unless market suggests otherwise.

Seas The Stars colt who is full brother to Group 2 winner Mutakaayef and half-brother to Group 1 winner Veracious and other good winners. Yard continues in great form but hasn't looked anything out of the ordinary in two runs so far.

So You Think half-brother to three fair winners. Dropped away tamely on debut over 1m2f buyt better last time at a mile when at Windsor. Probably one to keep an eye on when handicapped later in the campaign.

Dark Angel colt who showed promise on recent Ffos Las debut over extended 7f, staying on having been outpaced 2f out to be beaten less than 5 lengths. Will know more but this looks a decent event.

Sepoy filly cost just 1,500 guineas but is related to five winners. Makes racecourse debut under star French rider, but declaration of a hood suggests she may be best watched on this initial outing.

85,000 guineas Teofilo filly who should have learned something from modest debut at Goodwood in June over 7f when well beaten after weakening 2 out. Probably needs more time before fulfilling potential.

Daughter of Delegator out of Group-placed dam, but hasn't showed too much in two starts so far after looking green on both occasions. Hard to enthuse over.

Very well bred Dubawi filly out of a 1m2f Listed winner. Looks the part on paper and in-form yard capable of readying one on debut. Betting should give some clues to expectations.

400,000 Guineas Kodiac filly who is half-sister to Group 1 winner Barney Roy. Hood aplied for this first appearance is a slight worry but fine yard know the time of day and top jockey on board. Interesting candidate.

Improved on quiet 7f debut at Doncaster last month with third over a mile at Chelmsford last time. Should win a race or two but this looks a very tough task.

Forecast

Dubai Warrior (4/11), Muhaarar's Nephew (7/1), Khabeerah (10/1), Qatar Queen (10/1), Rapture (11/1), Knockacullion (12/1), Sea Wings (20/1), Young General (50/1), Aspiring Diva (50/1), Chamomile (66/1), Melburnian (66/1), Kasuku (66/1), So Strictly (66/1), Pentimento (80/1)

Verdict

A fascinating mile contest which revolves to a great extent around the unbeaten Dubai Warrior, who looked a smart prospect when winning on debut last November but hasn't been seen since. The two newcomer fillies, Qatar Queen (a half-sister to Barney Roy), and Khabeerah, a well bred daughter of Dubawi, both look the part on paper and the market should prove informative, but with fitness on his side and having shown a good attitude to win at Beverely last time, MUHARAAR'S NEPHEW is a marginal preference.
