Got off the mark on debut in Newbury maiden (11f) in April prior to a creditable third of 4 in Lingfield Derby Trial. Disappointed here (11f) next time but back on track having been gelded when fourth on handicap bow at Newmarket (10f) 3 weeks ago. This demands more now fitted with hood.

Useful gelding who ended last season with success in Pontefract listed event (1m, heavy) in October. Hit frame on 2 of 3 starts in Meydan since turn of the year but below par at Chelmsford (1m) when last seen in March (too free). Absent since and returns with stamina to prove.

3/1
Zelzal colt who was 2-3 as a juvenile and continued on his upward trajectory when defying a 6 lb lower mark on return/handicap debut at Doncaster (10.2f) in June. In excellent hands and he's one to keep firmly on side with more to come.

9/2
All the rage in the betting and quickly landed pair of 1¼m maiden/novice events earlier this year. Beaten only by another upwardly-mobile stablemate in 3-runner Ascot handicap (12f) 3 weeks ago and likely to have found that aiding his development.

325,000 gns Le Havre colt who landed back-to-back 7f novice events last summer and continued on upward curve to land 1m Esher Cup on return at Sandown in April. Solid sixth in Britannia at Royal Ascot has followed and he's respected up in trip.

Teofilo colt who landed back-to-back AW novice events earlier this year and posted a career-best effort when third behind re-opposing Wanees in Esher Cup on penultimate start. Not seen to best effect tackling this trip at Ascot in June and he's worth another chance having been gelded since.

Promising sort who landed second of 2 starts in France and good start for new yard when landing AW novice (12.2f) in April. Much improved when runner-up behind Missed The Cut in Golden Gates handicap at Royal Ascot and further progress not out of the question.

Twice placed at Kempton over the winter and further progress following a wind op this year, taking a Salisbury maiden and following up with a bit to spare on handicap bow at York (10.2f) 20 days ago. This understandably tougher but likely he has more to offer.

Well-related colt and upped his game to open his account in ready fashion at Bath (10f) in May. Had excuses in handicaps since, switch to patient tactics possibly not suiting at Newmarket (10f) 3 weeks ago. Mark has eased.

Fairly useful form at best as a 2-y-o and, having slipped in weights, he took a step forward to open his account on return at Carlisle (9f) 3 weeks ago, leading 2f out and driven clear. This will demand further progress, however.

Improved to land back-to-back AW handicaps in the spring and back to form to prove himself as effective on turf when second in 5-runner Nottingham handicap (8.3f) 13 days ago. Longer trip needs to unlock further progress now, though.

9/2
Very well-related individual who, having been gelded, showed much-improved form to make winning return/handicap debut at Sandown (9f) in June, well on top finish. That form has substance and he's the type to go on improving as stamina is drawn out. Respected.

Showed improved form on back of being gelded when off the mark in good style at Newmarket (1m) in June. Encouraging he built on that when second at Ascot (1m) subsequently and he's worth a crack over this longer trip (dam stayed 11f).

Forecasts

Migdam (3/1), Warren Point (9/2), Vee Sight (9/2), Wanees (7/1), Asaassi (15/2), Natural World (14/1), Whitefeathersfall (14/1), Asgoodassobergets (16/1), Blue Trail (18/1), Schmilsson (33/1), Royal Rift (33/1), Mr Professor (80/1), Court Of Session (80/1)

Verdict

MIGDAM was 2-3 as a juvenile and picked up where he left off to score on return/handicap debut at Doncaster in June, relishing the step up to 1¼m as he forged clear. A 6 lb higher mark shouldn't prevent another bold bid and he gets the vote. Warren Point may well settle better in this bigger field and is feared, along with last-time-out scorers Vee Sight and Asaassi.
