6/4
Useful colt who improved again to defy a penalty on return in a Nottingham conditions' event (5f) in April. Backed that up with a solid second in a York listed event and he's a live player once more.

All the way winner of a C&D maiden in September and ran creditably when fourth in Grp 2 Mill Reef next time. Well held final start but should come on for return. Blinkers/tongue strap applied.

Much improved in cheekpieces when winning 5f handicaps at Wolverhampton/over C&D this spring. Efforts have been a shade underwhelming since, last of 4 at Leicester (6f) recently.

Precocious juvenile who landed Group 3 Molecombe Stakes prior to a good fifth in Flying Childers. Below form final start and he needs to show benefit of Naas return to feature here. Tongue strap on.

11/2
Building up a good record for this yard, making it 3 wins from 5 starts in first-time cheekpieces at Goodwood (5f) in April, staying on well. Likeable type who may have more to offer still.

Maiden winner at 5.7f in Ireland for Joseph O'Brien last summer. Consistent rather than progressive in trio of starts for new yard at this level and likely she's vulnerable to a few.

13/2
Mehmas filly who landed 6f novice/nursery events last summer. Far from disgraced in listed events so far this term, fourth of 7 at Newbury (6f) in May but she does have work to do on these terms.

7/1
Ended last year on the up on AW, landing back-to-back maiden/minor events at Dundalk (readily). Added to tally when taking 3-runner minor event at Fairyhouse on return and she's an interesting runner.

28/1
Fairly useful filly who has twice tasted success in AW handicaps since the turn of the year. More miss than hit since stepping up in grade though, and likely set to struggle in this field.

Forecasts

Atalis Bay (6/4), Warrior Brave (11/2), Mishal Star (13/2), Queens Carriage (7/1), Steel Bull (17/2), First Edition (10/1), Nelson Gay (14/1), Silent Queen (28/1), Dense Star (28/1)

Verdict

ATALIS BAY was a 3-time winner as a 2-y-o and has made an excellent start to this campaign, making a winning return at Nottingham before beaten only by current King's Stand second-favourite Winter Power at York, and this looks a good opportunity for him to resume winning ways. The progressive Warrior Brave may emerge as the biggest threat ahead of Queens Carriage, who is also on the upgrade.
