Mayson colt that cost 11,000 gns as a foal, and made a perfectly acceptable debut when third over 6f here earlier in the month. Needs improvement but that's not impossible by any means.
Shooting To Win gelding that showed only minor promise on his Nottingham debut earlier in the month. Better ground here may suit, but plenty to find.
Havana Gold gelding that's twice gone close already, beaten by the minimum margin at Lingfield on debut and then by ½l at Newmarket last time. The one to beat on form, but slightly disconcerting to see the cheekpieces so soon.
Zebedee gelding that stuck to the task to finish fifth on his Thirsk debut a couple of weeks ago, looking very much in need of the experience. Bred for speed and this test should suit, so expect better today.
Dream Ahead colt that took a step forward on his latest effort, finishing fifth in a similar event at Newbury (7f). Drop back in trip ought not to bother him, likely there's more to come and is well drawn to attack.
Cost £5,000 as a 2yo; eighth foal and a half-brother to 4 winners including the useful Saint Jerome. Likely to want further on breeding and might need the experience on debut for a yard that have few first time out winners.
First foal, bred to be speedy but showed little on Windsor debut a couple of weeks ago, weakening quickly under pressure. In good hands but needs a big leap forward to get involved today.
Equiano filly that only beat a couple home on her Newbury debut, looking very much in need of time. Will improve but looks an unlikely winner here.
