WHITEBEAM landed a Haydock handicap after back-to-back wins at Newbury including over this trip. She has scope to improve and can show it.

Crystal Caprice has won both her handicap starts and had plenty in the tank at Ascot last time. She is another with much more to offer and is the biggest threat.

Romantic Rival held her own in a Doncaster Group 3 16 days ago and stays well. She comes from behind and has Jamie Spencer on board.

Crenelle went close in a Haydock Listed and the first-time cheekpieces could help her get home but more is needed.

Zanbaq has had a break since her Ascot fifth and is better than that.


SEA SILK ROAD drops in class after a solid run in France and went close in the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot on her only try at this trip. She should have too much class.

Eternal Pearl looks the main threat after she landed a Deauville Group 3 last month. She saw out this trip well and was a Listed winner on the July course here in July. There’s more to come.

We haven’t seen much of Royal Scandal but she looked a good prospect when scoring a Kempton.

This is tougher but that was just her third run and she has place claims.

Poptronic was outclassed in the Yorkshire Oaks but won in this grade at Newcastle. She needs to prove her staying power for this trip but has a chance.

Peripatetic will have to improve after winning a Goodwood handicap over this trip latest.


COMMISSIONING has run just once but was impressive when scoring on the July course.

She picked up well and ran right through the line. This is much tougher but she looks up to the test.

Olivia Maralda clocked a personal best when a close second in the Group 2 Debutante at The Curragh last month. That showed her liking for this trip and she won’t be far away.

Leitzel hasn’t had a lot to beat but she’s done it nicely and has place claims in this higher level.

Rage Of Bamby won easily at Leicester after a Newbury debut success and is another with more to come.

Sydneyarms Chelsea won a French Group 3 last time so is no mug.


MUTASAABEQ didn’t handle Goodwood last time after going close in this grade at Ascot.

This looks a good chance and the first-time blinkers can help him knuckle down.

Tempus has landed back-to-back Group 3s and was impressive in France last time. He looks a threat over his best trip.

Potapova ran her best race of the season when winning the Atalanta at Sandown last month.

She goes up in class slightly here but is another with a major chance.

Pogo is probably just better over 7f but is having a cracking season, while Oscula is consistent and won a Group 3 the last time William Buick was on board.



AL DASIM can score on debut for the excellent George Boughey.

He was an easy maiden winner at Windsor before a fair effort in a Deauville Listed last time.

Dropping into a handicap can do the trick over a trip that suits.

Rogue Spirit didn’t seem to stay 6f in a hot York handicap latest and will be happier over this distance. He was a good third in the Newbury Super Sprint so has pace.

Raven’s Up scored nicely at Ripon and deserves a crack at this stronger grade. Her yard is in form and her young rider takes off 3lb.

Queen of Uplands struck on the Lingfield sand but likes turf too and can run well.


CROUPIER came with a late surge to strike at Windsor and can repeat the feat. He’s best over this trip and comes from a yard ending the season strongly.

Delorean won on handicap debut over course and distance and a 4lb rise is fair.

He has more to come after just four runs.

Foden finished well when winning over a bit shorter at Beverley so should get home.

He’s creeping up the weights but looks a threat.

Vintage Choice was well backed before running poorly here last time and is worth another look with a 5lb claimer taking over.

Moon Watch is also respected on handicap debut for the Gosdens.


SPEYCASTER was doing his best work at the finish when fourth here latest and will have learned from that experience.

Trainer Ralph Beckett is in form and the first-time blinkers can help after he wandered around last time.

Baltic Bird has had a break since finding the Queen’s Vase too much at Royal Ascot.

He drops into handicap company here and can run well for the Gosdens.

Flamborough stayed on over 1m4f when second at Kempton and could go from the front under Franny Norton and hold on for a place.

Sea King is capable of better for staying supremo Sir Mark Prescott.
