16/1

Casamento colt who cost £16,000 as a yearling. Showed promise with debut third at Hamilton (5f, good to soft) in May though much less promising at Thirsk over 6f in June. AW bow off a break and could have something to offer.

100/1

Slade Power colt, beaten close to 12L over C&D on debut last month and since failed to beat a rival home over 5f on soft ground at Beverley. Big step up needed.

12,000 gns two-year-old, Camacho colt. Half-brother to winner up to 7f Worth Choice. Bred to get further, market informative.

Improving in four starts, beaten 4L on recent handicap bow over 5½f at Bath. First-time blinkers tried now in bid to get off the mark back on the AW.

4/1

Defied odds of 100-1 when second on debut over 6f here in July (beaten 4½L), hasn't built on that in three starts since but matched it back on AW at Lingfield last time.

6/1

Irish raider, hasn't come close than 3¼L second in C&D novice in August in his six-race career to date. More exposed than a few of these but could relish being back here.

11/1

Ran well in C&D novice in August and beaten just over 3L on handicap bow at Lingfield on handicap bow since. Eased 2lb and first-time cheekpieces applied here with scope for better.

Dream Ahead filly, third of nine in maiden at Chantilly (6f, good,) 35 days ago and entitled to have designs on the prize on British debut.

Betting

Forecast

Be Ahead (11/10), Lilkian (4/1), On Tick (6/1), Rushcutters Bay (9/1), Dynamighty (11/1), Castlehill Retreat (16/1), Dark Phoenix (25/1), Love Not Money (50/1), Knock Knock (100/1), Tattletime (100/1)

Verdict
French import BE AHEAD boasts the best form from her three starts and could make a wining debut in this country for a trainer in good form at the moment. On Tick has run well at this venue before and could do so again while newcomers Dark Phoenix and Tattletime are worth a betting check in what isn't a deep race.
