14:30 – Alzahir

The selection was gambled on his racecourse debut at Yarmouth as if defeat was out of the question. That was undone by a very slow gallop in the early stages, but ALZAHIR rattled home and three strides past the line was powering to the front. It’s been a poor week for Italian jockey Frankie Dettori, but he could get one on the scoresheet here.

15:05 – Dubawi Legend

Had some rock-solid juvenile form last season, but returned with a very tame effort by his standards in the 2000 Guineas. DUBAWI LEGEND has long been the apple of his trainer’s eye (Hugo Palmer), and has his sights lowered somewhat as a confidence booster. The fast ground over the long sprint distance looks ideal.

15:40 – Hurricane Lane

Top rated, and yes he’s going to be short odds, but HURRICANE LANE will take some beating. Another added bonus is he has a fantastic record when fresh, and looks the cornerstone of many accumulators on Saturday afternoon.

16:20 – Emaraaty Ana (each-way)

EMARAATY ANA is completely overlooked in the market after two below par efforts over in Dubai. But we shouldn’t underestimate the natural ability that he showed last season, when winning up at the top level. The yard don’t normally walk away from this meeting empty-handed, and will be expecting him to way outrun his odds.

17:00 – Tabdeed

Cost a fortune for new connections from the horses in training sales, and so far has run well without looking as if he’s going to go all the way to the top level. TABDEED is back in handicap company, which will see him in a much more comfortable rhythm and looks fairly weighted on the mark of 102. He’s drawn in the middle, and can be another Royal Ascot winner for the trainer-jockey combination of Archie Watson and Hollie Doyle.

17:35 – Phantom Flight

PHANTOM FLIGHT has been put forward by his young fledgling trainer, James Horton, as his best horse, and has a fancy pedigree to go with that lofty reputation. He was always in command when winning last time, travelling very strongly into the contest which will help in the hustle and bustle of a race like this. Fast ground also looks a positive for this smooth moving machine.

    18:10 – Timour (each-way)

    TIMOUR is the only runner throughout the meeting for the multiple French champion trainer A.Fabre. He also takes a massive hike up in distance, and that confidence about staying well should not be underestimated when coming from this quarter. We have a lot of the old favourites taking each other on, and he is flying in under the radar completely unexposed at the distance.
