Looked a useful prospect when comfortably seeing off a next-time-out scorer at Newcastle (6f) on debut, then narrowly touched off at Newmarket under a penalty. Deserves a crack at this.

Won 6-runner minor event at Newmarket (6f, good, 22/1) on debut before a disappointing third bidding to defy a penalty at Wolverhampton recently. Others preferred.

Confirmed debut promise when comfortably off the mark at Chepstow and should have more to offer, so he's not totally ruled out for all he has plenty to find.

Shaped well at Beverley on debut, then managed to overcome a wide draw to land a novice there 8 days ago, so he could take another step forward in this much tougher scenario.

Looks way out of his depth having only been placed in a couple of maidens to date.

Dual Haydock winner who upped his game when runner-up in Superlative Stakes at Newmarket and Vintage Stakes (second) at Goodwood. Sets a clear standard.

Chased home subsequent Group 2 winner Supremacy at Windsor prior to going one better in a big-field Redcar novice (6f). Not disgraced at Chester last time but looks more exposed than some.

Scored easily in a small-field event at Sandown and, following a good effort in the Queen Mary, landed the Super Sprint in good style at Newbury last time. Excellent claims once again.

Built on initial promise when comfortably off the mark at Hamilton in June but below that level in better company since and looks up against it again here.

Promising sort who was off the mark at the second attempt when staying on well at Hamilton 19 days ago. Open to further progress, so not completely out of it.

Knew more and built on debut when third in novice at Lingfield 6 days ago but would need a more marked step forward if he was to make any sort of impression here.

Readily landed odds in 5f Doncaster novice and back on track when third in a nursery at goodwood 3 weeks ago. Looks exposed now, though, and needs to find more.

Bright start to career when scoring at Lingfield (AW) before struggling at a higher level the last twice. This is a bit more realistic but he's still vulnerable.

Built on a promising start at Pontefract when scoring at Hamilton, then fared best of those held up when fourth to Happy Romance at Newbury last month. Not sure to reverse that form.

Left debut well behind when landing a 5f minor event at Beverley last month. Backed it up in a better race at Chester but he's not good enough to feature in this.

Close relation to Major Jumbo who showed a cracking attitude when landing a 5-runner event narrowly from Significantly (ran well in listed race next time) in June. Should progress, so big player.

Belatedly off the mark faced with a straightforward task at Bath 2 weeks ago but he's an ungenuine sort with plenty to find, so doesn't make much appeal.

Has improved with each run to date but will likely come up way short in this company.

Forecast

Devious Company (11/8), Happy Romance (4/1), Tinochio (6/1), Uncle Jumbo (7/1), Line Of Departure (10/1), Painless Potter (14/1), Billian (16/1), Fools Rush In (16/1), Talbot (25/1), Adaay Dream (28/1), Out The Hat (33/1), Rebel At Dawn (40/1), Bhubezi (40/1), Kraken Power (40/1), Power Station (66/1), Vedute (66/1), Apres Dark (66/1), Imperial Fora (100/1), Tom's Reign Beau (125/1), Brazen Prince (150/1), Bilandy (150/1), Mehmo (250/1)

Verdict

UNCLE JUMBO battled away to see off another talented rival when making a winning start at Doncaster in June and has clearly been saved for a tilt at this, so a chance is taken on him to improve past Devious Company, who has achieved more in form terms to this point. Newbury Super Sprint winner Happy Romance is another obvious player.

  1. UNCLE JUMBO
  2. DEVIOUS COMPANY (IRE)
  3. HAPPY ROMANCE (IRE)
