13:15 Vesela

The market will be revealing, but Khalid Abdullah unleashes a couple of Frankel newcomers in VESELA and Quilted and it would come as no surprise were either to achieve a useful rating at the first attempt. Marginal preference is for the Ralph Beckett filly, with Wootton Creek, who started at odds-on for his debut at Chelmsford in June, perhaps the pick of those with experience.

13:50 Cobh

COBH looked a good prospect when making a winning debut in heavy ground at Haydock in July and found only subsequent Champagne Stakes winner Chindit too good in a listed event at Ascot later that month. Cobh didn’t need to improve to win a similar event at Salisbury last time, beating another subsequent listed winner, so his form stacks up, and he makes the most appeal on an open renewal of the Royal Lodge.

14:25 Miss Amulet

The unbeaten Dandalla has been popular in the betting in the lead up to this, but the form of last month’s Lowther Stakes at York, where MISS AMULET won from Sacred and Umm Kulthum, looks the best on offer. That was Miss Amulet’s first start at six furlongs, and she seemed to relish it, taking her form to another level and always holding off the challenge of the strong-travelling Sacred. There doesn’t appear to be many chinks in her armour and another bold bid is expected.

15:00 Method

A fascinating race featuring some of the most exciting two-year-olds in training, but METHOD could hardly have created a more striking impact on his two starts and there’s substance to go with style, both in the form book and on the clock. Minzaal looked a colt of serious potential when taking the Gimcrack at York, while Lucky Vega’s success in the Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh is the best form on offer.

15:35 Tempus

Another Cambridgeshire where the ‘Group horse in a handicap’ premise likely very much rings true in the form of TEMPUS. He’s improved in fine style this year, winning a good handicap at Ascot very easily three weeks ago, and he looks smart at least. His draw and step up in trip are both positives and he’s hard to get away from in what is admittedly another competitive renewal. His owner’s Derevo, who has been unlucky not to win so far this season, looks a big threat, as do Good Birthday and Ilaraab.

16:10 Meu Amor

MEU AMOR sales price rose considerably at the breeze-ups and was a promising third having attracted support and raced in a different group to the front pair in a Doncaster nursery last time. It wouldn’t be a great surprise were this progressive filly to progress again resume winning ways. That said, there’s plenty of competition, notably from Renaissance Rose and recent Goodwood scorer Neptune’s Wonder.

16:40 Ghalyoon

GHALYOON has turned in two excellent runs since his return from a breathing operation so Marcus Tregoning’s low-mileage five-year-old is taken to gain a deserved victory here and thwart the hat-trick bid of Documenting who remains feasibly weighted on the peak of his all-weather form. Improving Cry Havoc is not without interest on her turf debut and she can fare best of the three-year-old quartet in an open closing handicap.
