This is an open contest, but it could be worth siding with CACHET. She was a wide-margin winner at Newmarket on debut and has since run with credit when fifth in the Albany Stakes, she was also third in the Empress Fillies’ Stakes. She should be suited by the step up to 7 furlongs and is likely to launch a bold bid.
DESERT DREAMER is clear at the top of Timeform’s ratings having finished an excellent runner-up in the Group 2 Duchess of Cambridge Stakes at Newmarket’s July meeting. Desert Dreamer had previously chased home System in the Empress Fillies’ Stakes, but she raised her game last time, chasing home Albany Stakes winner Sandrine.
There’s little doubt that is the best form on offer and Desert Dreamer actually shaped a shade better than the result having been forced to wait for a gap. She can gain a deserved victory.
FANTASTIC FOX shaped with plenty of promise when third behind Snow Lantern and Derab in a strong maiden at Newbury in April and he had no problem making the most of a good opportunity at Hamilton.
He failed to get home when upped in trip in a hot handicap at Royal Ascot, but he had a legitimate excuse there and will be seen to better effect back at a mile. He has more to offer over this sort of trip and can bounce back.
MATTHEW FLINDERS put up his best effort yet on his first attempt at seven furlongs, chasing home the classy Safe Voyage in a listed contest at Chester. He will have to compete off a 10lbs higher mark in future, so he makes obvious appeal from a handicapping perspective.
The good form of trainer Ed Walker and rider Oisin Murphy is a further positive for Matthew Flinders, who has long appealed as the type to bag a valuable handicap.
ADAYAR had looked like a colt of some potential when shaping best in a strong running of Sandown’s Classic Trial and he confirmed that impression with a decisive success in the Derby.
Adayar scored by 4-and-a-half lengths at Epsom, storming clear inside the final furlong. He relished the extra emphasis on stamina in the Derby and, having won on testing ground as a juvenile, will not be inconvenienced if the going deteriorates.
CAMELOT TALES looked like a good prospect when swooping from last to first at Ayr three weeks ago. He posted an impressive closing sectional, passing the bulk of the field within the final 100 yards, and he scored with more in hand than the winning margin of half a length would suggest. A 2lbs rise in the weights should not stop this unexposed type from following up.
CRACK REGIMENT was a narrow winner at Newcastle last time, but he did well to win given that nothing else made an impact from off the pace. Crack Regiment travelled with zest and quickened to lead inside the final 50 yards.
He would have won by further than a head had his jockey, Ben Curtis, not dislocated a shoulder which hampered his ability to ride proper finish, so he looks up to defying a 5lb rise in the weights.
