Clodovil half-brother to juvenile 7f winner Ride The Monkey. Shaped well when 3½L third of 12 to Bond's Boy in a 6f Redcar novice last month, and sure to improve for this stiffer test.

First foal of an unraced mare, and twice sold cheaply. Gelded and fitted with blinkers for racecourse bow, which doesn't augur well.

Much better effort to date when 4¾L sixth of 18 to Escape Proof in a 7f novice at Leicester last time, travelling well close up before fading. May well progress again, so not a forlorn hope.

By Gutaifan out of an unraced mare, so not easy to weigh up, but trainer's newcomers tend to need experience, and he's probably best watched with that in mind.

Promise on Carlisle debut, and may well have won with a clearer run when just failing to get up in a soft-ground 6f novice at Hamilton last time. Sets a solid standard.

Has shown a modicum of ability despite being beaten a fair way on both starts so far, and is the sort to progress down the line., but needs this for a handicap mark, and others preferred accordingly.

Related to winners, and shaped better than the bare result when 8¾L fourth of eight to Nat Love in a 7f maiden at Epsom on last month's debut. Plenty to find on form, but sure to do better.

Ran better than finishing position suggests when seventh of 11 to Melody King in a better class novice than this over C&D nine days ago, and should come on enough to be competitive, assuming this doesn't come too soon.

Out of useful juvenile Jamesbo's Girl, and runs in same colours as her, so perhaps unwise to focus on £800 sale earlier this year. Yard 3-15 with 2-y-o newcomers since May, and one of the more interesting newcomers.

7/1

Homebred half-brother to 2-y-o 6f winner Topflight Princess and 7f winner Camber. Shaped well when 2½ lengths sixth of 10 to Plymouth Rock in a similar event over C&D on debut, and yard's 2-y-o's invariably improve for initial experience.

War Command gelding, half-brother to 7f-1¼m winner Miss Lillie and 7f winner El Chapo out of a half-sister to smart 6f/7f winner Morache Music. Appeal on paper, but yard's newcomers invariably need experience.

Kodiac filly from a good family, and cost €60,000 as a yearling, although that price halved when re-sold at the Breeze-Ups. Yard's juveniles haven't made much of a splash in recent years.

Betting

Forecast

Hartswood (11/8), Challet (5/2), Top Flight Cool (7/1), Kuwaity (11/1), Starbo (11/1), Philosophical (12/1), King's Charisma (16/1), Quercus (28/1), Clifftop Heaven (33/1), Fansurper (40/1), War Defender (50/1), Class Clown (50/1), Fiannoglaigh (66/1)

Verdict

HARTSWOOD is hard to oppose after just failing to get up at Hamilton last time, and a repeat of that form will likely be enough to win an ordinary event such as this. Top Flight Cool showed plenty starting out over C&D and should improve enough to get involved, while Starbo is one of the more interesting newcomers despite seeming to garner no interest at the sales.
