7/1

Harbour Watch colt sprang 50/1 shock in 7f Salisbury novice on debut last month, winning with a bit in hand. Third and fifth have won since so form appears decent but this is a big step up in class and more needed.

Won Wolverhampton 6f novice in June then fine fourth in 7f Listed Chesham Stakes three weeks later. Beaten a neck in Ascot 7f Listed event last month and is clearly useful. Jockey-trainer won this race 12 months ago.

Night Of Thunder colt who is 2-2 following 7f novice wins at Doncaster and Redcar. Could be more to come for red-hot yard and holds some good entries so should give the hat-trick bid a decent shot.

Easily accounted for two rivals in Carlisle heavy ground mile novice stakes last time to get off the mark at third attempt. Top trainer must rate her to take on this company so is respected but needs to produce much more to score.

Second representative for last year's winning yard. Won at Chester in June then good fourth in Deauville Group 3 on very testing ground last month. Stayed on to win C&D novice earlier this month and any rain wouldn't hard her chance in hotter race.

Betting

Forecast

Juan Elcano (5/4), Thunderous (11/8), Sun Power (15/8), Frankel's Storm (6/1), Pyledriver (7/1), Sesame Birah (16/1)

Verdict

The Frankel colt JUAN ELACANO brings the best form into the race courtesy of his fine second place in Group 2 company at HQ last time. A repetition of that run would probably be good enough to score here. There are plenty of dangers, including Sun Power, only narrowly beaten at Ascot last time in similar company and a rock solid yardstick, whille Thunderous looks the better of Mark Johnston's pair and is still unexposed. Likewise, Pyledriver is an unknown quantity and is respected, and Sesame Birrah cannot be ruled out, especially if the ground eases.
