6/4
Very useful juvenile, winning Windsor Castle and a Group 2 at Newmarket before form levelled off. Better than ever when making winning return in the Free Handicap (7f) and that puts him in the mix.

Flopped in the Coventry after taking debut win and now right back on the up with a brace of handicap wins at Newmarket over 6f this spring. Prospect of more to come and he's the one to beat.

Useful juvenile who picked up some nice prizes before a creditable fourth in the Cheveley Park at Newmarket. Left reappearance run behind when making winning AW debut despite interference last time.

9/1
Shaped well more than once as a juvenile and completed a simple task with the minimum of fuss on reappearance at Pontefract. Back in Group 3 company and was an excellent third at Ascot latest.

16/1
Built on debut promise to readily land 15-runner maiden at Newbury (6f) in September. Hasn't been seen to best effect both starts since and has a bigger performance in him, but this is a tough ask.

11/1
Novice and nursery winners over 6f in September. Well held in the mud on final 2-y-o start and far better than she could show behind Happy Romance on reappearance.

Fairly useful performer, won maiden at Le Touquet in 2020, then left Henry Spiller. Well held in listed race at Chantilly final outing and since left Mlle A. S. Crombez and returned to former trainer.

Forecasts

Tactical (6/4), Creative Force (9/4), Happy Romance (5/1), Spycatcher (9/1), Mishal Star (11/1), Whenthedealinsdone (16/1), Treena (125/1)

Verdict

CREATIVE FORCE looks a pattern-class performer having recorded a brace of handicap wins at Newmarket this spring and the 3 lb he receives from Tactical tilts the scales in his favour. Spycatcher advanced his form when third in a Group 3 last time and is perhaps best of the rest.
