ASADJUMEIRAH left his debut form well behind when third at Lingfield earlier in the month and can make it third time lucky with further improvement on the cards.
Eye of Heaven has flopped twice since making a successful debut, but could get his career back on track now returning to calmer waters.
Passthecourvoisier showed plenty to work on at Catterick and can’t be taken lightly, either.
A fillies’ novice that may revolve around the reopposing WARREN ROSE and Areehaa, with slight preference for the former having got the better of Sir Michael Stoute’s charge at Yarmouth 19 days ago.
Both are open to improvement, but Hugo Palmer’s filly is taken to defy the penalty. Iris Bud is a noteworthy newcomer and the market can guide expectations.
VALE OF KENT hasn’t won for over a year, but he has been given a chance by the handicapper, and a return to this type of scenario could see him bounce back to something like his best.
A natural front runner, he may prove a hard horse to peg back in this small field. Laser Show is still on an upward trajectory and can provide the main threat.
BURIDAN shaped as though on the way back to form when midfield at Goodwood in July, not getting the clearest run but staying on well once in the clear. Having dropped below his last winning mark, he now looks poised to strike.
Watchable is going through a good spell currently so he has to be of interest, with Woven another to consider.
Progressive three-year-olds CRY HAVOC and Fleeting Prince look the pair to focus on, with preference for the former, who was arguably unlucky not to win on her first attempt at this trip over course and distance three weeks ago.
He was beaten only by a track specialist on that occasion, and he looks well treated from just a 2lb higher mark. The thriving Aljari looks best of the older horses.
This test is probably on the sharp side for FRONT OF LINE, but there’s definite mileage in her from this sort of mark, and in a race lacking depth, she may well get away with it.
Jamie Spencer is an eye-catching booking on Seas of Elzaam and he is feared, with My Friend Stan completing the shortlist.
SEA SISTER continues to hold her form well and looks the most solid option back on the all-weather.
The return to this trip ought to suit and there should be more to come from her Mackelly was a good winner on the fibresand two weeks ago and remains unexposed over middle distances, so rates the main threat ahead of Bolt N Brown.
