This year’s Coral Charge features a very interesting clash between the progressive 5f performers MITBAAHY and Raasel. It could be very close but Mitbaahy’s success in the Scurry Stakes over C&D tips the scales narrowly in his favour. Third choice is Method, who is unexposed at this distance. Equilateral is far more exposed but he warrants respect on the figures.

Back at 1m, OUZO looks interesting on only his third start for Jamie Osborne. He ran very well on his debut for the yard behind a progressive rival over C&D and it’s best to forgive his 7f defeat at Royal Ascot. Sinjaari, who ran respectably in the Royal Hunt Cup, is feared most ahead of unexposed 3yo Checkandchallenge and in-form 5yo Lion Tower. Tahitian Prince has possibilities if he takes well to new headgear.
As an improving and unbeaten filly who has the best chance on ratings, HEREDIA (nap) is hard to oppose. Her biggest threats (in order of preference) may be Fast Attack, who ties in closely with the selection on one piece of 2yo form, and Grande Dame, who is open to further progress back down in class.
This year’s Eclipse could turn tactical with no habitual front-runners in the field, though Alenquer and Mishriff have been successful at up to 1m4f and seem the most likely candidates to make the pace. Alenquer is progressive and Mishriff is high class on his day but Bay Bridge, who was impressive in this season’s Brigadier Gerard here, may well prove best of the older horses. However, the talented 3yos VADENI and Native Trail are taken to fill the first two places, in that order. Vadeni is a hugely promising 1m2f colt having been stellar in the French Derby last time, while Native Trail also brings Classic form and a strong profile.

This competitive handicap can go to the unexposed CHAIRMAN who takes on stronger opposition than when scoring at Salisbury and Bath but still has untapped potential. The other 3yos Aldhaja and Le Forban are also open to improvement, while Aqwaam has not shown his full hand yet and could be dangerous now that he tackles handicaps. Course winners Sweet Reward and Balgair should be thereabouts but the biggest danger may come from Electrical Storm who was so impressive at York after a long absence.
A typically interesting 3yo handicap, with several runners looking open to further improvement. First choice is PICUAL, who has a very useful pedigree and should still be well treated off her new mark. Forward Flight, a similar type, is second choice ahead of I Am The Sea and Land Of Eagles.

Lovely Mana is thriving and has to be respected despite a sharp rise in the weights, but at the other end of the age scale JUST GLAMOROUS is just preferred. The selection ran a cracker over C&D last time and a reproduction of that effort should see him go close, at the least. Third on the list is Mine’s A Double with King Of Stars and Shamlaan also considered.
