Half-brother to 1m2f Italian Listed winner Elisa Again. Didn't need to improve on his first two promising efforts when winning at Chester (7f, good) six weeks ago. Should stay this trip but significantly better opposition means improvement needed.

Half-brother to 1m4f Listed-placed Camphor. Built on his good debut to win easily by 6L at Pontefract (1m, good to soft) two weeks ago. That didn't look a strong race (third beaten since off 76) but hard to knock the manner of his victory.

Took a big step forward on moderate debut to bolt up by 8½L at Gowran (1m, soft) two weeks ago. Sire a stamina influence and dam a half-sister to three winners between 1m4f-2m and should make a bold bid for yard seeking a hat-trick in this race.

Ran creditably in two Listed races over 1m the last twice, on both occasions looking outpaced late on. Trainer has won this race six times and as a half-brother to Leger second Sir Ron Priestley, the extra 2f should be right up his street.

Has a fantastic pedigree with his parents winning the French Derby and French Oaks (both 1m2½f) respectively. Stayed on well to win on handicap debut at Ayr (1m, good) under top-weight three weeks ago and worthy of his place in this line-up.

Dam half-sister to fair dual-purpose horse Bowdler's Magic. Relatively unfancied but a taking performance when staying on strongly to win at Newbury (1m, good) against some fair rivals and another who will appreciate the longer trip.

Narrowly denied when odds-on first time out but upped to 1m at Goodwood (good) shortly after he won impressively by 6L. Unexposed with Classic entries in 2020 but will need to improve again as others have shown better form thus far.

9/2

Unbeaten in two starts over 1m at Kempton (Polytrack) and Sandown (good), winning comfortably on both occasions. From a good German family with stamina on both sides and a leading yard who won this with a subsequent Group 1 filly in 2016.

Betting

Forecast

Mythical (2/1), Miss Yoda (9/2), Volkan Star (9/2), Tritonic (6/1), Max Vega (7/1), Subjectivist (14/1), Frankel's Storm (14/1), Berkshire Rocco (16/1), Tell Me All (16/1)

Verdict

A compelling renewal of this staying contest for juveniles. TRITONIC won well at Newbury in a traditionally-strong conditions race, shaping as though this extra 2f would only bring further improvement. Mythical also shaped like a strong stayer when bolting-up at Gowran recently and any cut in the ground will hold no fears whilst Frankel's Storm represents a yard with a good record in this race and is another who will be better the further she goes. A cracking race.
