Clitheroe catches the eye on debut as she is bred to be sharp – she is related to several winning sprinters – and cost £590,000 earlier this season. She evidently impressed at the breeze-up sales and can make an immediate impact here.
Alvediston, a 135,000 guineas purchase as a foal, has an appealing pedigree and represents leading connections, so catches the eye on debut. Alvediston is out of a useful mare who won on debut and placed at listed level, and he makes his first start at a time when the William Haggas yard is firing on all cylinders.
New Kingdom cost 800,000 guineas as a yearling and hails from an excellent family, so he is worth siding with on debut. New Kingdom is by leading sire Dubawi and out of Provenance, a mare who showed useful form and is a half-sister to the very smart Integral. Provenance’s dam, Echelon, was also a very smart performer so hopes are high that the expensively purchased New Kingdom can carry on the family honour. He is in excellent hands with Charlie Appleby.
Siyata had failed to meet expectations in maiden and novice company, pulling her chance away on a couple of occasions, but she proved a different proposition with patient tactics employed on her handicap debut at Ffos Las last month. Siyata, a daughter of the smart listed winner Caponata, is bred to be much better than a 71-rated handicapper and she looked a long way ahead of her mark at Ffos Las, winning with more in hand than the margin of half a length would suggest. She has gone up only 2 lb for that hands-and-heels success and can follow up here.

Delmona has been kept busy since winning on her debut at Bath in June, but she has thrived on her racing and holds strong claims here. She has not won since Bath but she was third in the Super Sprint, third in the Princess Margaret Stakes and runner-up in a listed contest at Deauville. She was beaten less than a length on all three of those outings, looking a straightforward type, and her form is the best on offer. She can gain a deserved success.
Super Cub has shown run-by-run improvement and opened his account at the third time of asking at Ripon last month. An opening handicap mark of 78 looks fair enough based on that ready success and Super Cub retains the potential to do much better. His pedigree suggests he ought to rate higher than this and, with Roger Varian, he is in the right hands to fulfil his potential.
Top Secret cashed in on a reduced mark when successful at Ascot last month and he followed that up with arguably a better effort in defeat at Newmarket last time. Top Secret caught the eye when runner-up at Newmarket as he finished powerfully, clocking a notably fast closing sectional, but was unable to overhaul one that had secured first run. That highlighted that he is operating at the top of his game and he should cope with this step up in trip.
Angels Roc remains a maiden after ten starts but he has been knocking on the door of late and has finished runner-up off this mark the last twice. Angels Roc was beaten only half a length at Epsom and wasn’t seen to best effect there having been short of room and forced to switch to deliver his challenge. He can gain a deserved success.
