Shaped up well in two starts so far and stayed this trip well at Ayr last month. Previously handled the Tapeta at Newcastle on debut but was well adrift of the winner that day. More needed but looks an interesting one for later handicaps.

Not made much progress so far but interesting he's being kept to race of this nature now he's already had the mandatory three runs for a handicap mark. His dam is a sister to Gold Cup winner Papineau so a step in trip will suit before long.

Cost 100,000 gns and is a half-brother to five winners, so pedigree makes for positive reading. His debut run created hope for a bright future but he only really got going near the finish so might just have need a bit more experience.

Slow on the uptake on debut at Newmarket but benefited sufficiently to post a much more accomplished effort at Chelmsford earlier this month. The colt edged ahead of Imperial Square near the finish that day and is a good bet to uphold the form.

Cost 150,000 gns but only eighth of twelve on debut at Newmarket in the first week of this month. He's bred to get a bit further than a mile but can only have benefited from that initial run. More to do this time.

100,000 gns yearling; he's the first foal of a sister to Michelangelo, who was placed in the 2012 St Leger. Highly respected yard but this trip could be a the bare minimum for this Siyouni colt.

Showed inexperience on debut when seventh of nine at Doncaster back in June; not seen out since then; but this son of Speciosa (won the 1,000 Guineas for this yard) could still have a bright future. One to monitor from here on.

Debut run was nothing special but improved to make a good race of it at Chelmsford last time out. Headed by Buwardy in the final strides that day but has a likelable enough attitude to give it another go this time. Dangerous to rule out.

Failed to get competitive in either of his previous starts and very hard to see him being good enough after those modest efforts.

Nicely-bred type who cost 90,000 gns as a yearling; the filly's debut run at Kempton has produced a winner already but there are holes to be picked in her latest start. Possible heavy ground was her undoing that day but she's got a lot to prove now.

Betting

Forecast

Buwardy (3/1), Fly Falcon (4/1), Arij (4/1), French Asset (11/2), Imperial Square (6/1), Visibility (12/1), Heliaebel (16/1), Grouseman (20/1), Ambassador (22/1), Showing (66/1), Anno Lucis (80/1), Nashy (N/A)

Verdict

BUWARDY finished with a show of strength at Chelmsford earlier this month and edged out Imperial Square in a lunge for the line. That experience will have brought the pair on a good deal but it would come as no surprise to see the same result if these two are up there to fight out the finish again this evening. Grouseman has a likeable pedigree and merits an interest having been given plenty of time to get over her debut run, while French Asset, who runs for a top yard, is another with a high-class pedigree who would be dangerous to omit form the equation.
