The most interesting contender is Sir Michael Stoute’s well-bred colt KODIAC SIGN (nap), who has shown clear promise in all of his three runs and looks on a fair mark for his handicap debut. He gets the vote, ahead of Chris Wall’s generally progressive filly Castana Dia, who was beaten less than 2l at Newmarket last month and looks interesting on her step back up to 7f. Third choice is Manhattanville, who had a tough draw at Chester last time and has claims if he can get back near his best.

The strength of PRINCEVILLE‘s close second over 6f here won’t get tested any sooner than later on this week, judged on the entries for several of those horses to finish around him. He remains one to be very interested in as things stand, however, all the more so now dropped to the trip his brother Yalta won a Group 3 over at 2. Al Dasim and Mia Paradis have been given time since their respective last-time seconds, and round off the shortlist in that order.
An open race in which the vote goes to STAR OF ST LOUIS, who hit a personal best with his breakthrough win over C&D last week and could be a major force again under a penalty back in a classified event. Jack D’Or turned things around with an eyecatching third at Bath and he’s feared most, though Seven For A Pound looks interesting on his second at Nottingham last month and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he made a bold bid. Others to consider are Aletoile and the lightly raced 3yos Kelapa and Rumourmonger.

That eyecatching Tipperary debut from Winforglory already sets the form standard, and with the likelihood of more to come once less green he’s easily preferred of those to have raced. Jane Chapple-Hyam enjoyed her first debut winner of the season with a confidently backed favourite at Doncaster last week, however, and any similar move for ARIKA would add significantly to the appeal of one who already looks a likely type on paper.
Noya finished close up behind a subsequent winner at Newbury last time and she’s respected off an unchanged mark but preference is for dual winner SPANGLED MAC, who escapes a penalty for his handicap debut win at Kempton. Boadicea Belle ran respectably back on turf at Newmarket last month but she has some work to do against two less exposed rivals.

No shortage of course form past and present. Torious (second best) was just a short-head away from making it 2-2 over C&D last time, while Lincoln Red might be sitting on a 4-6 record over C&D granted greater luck. However, a chance is taken on WRATH OF HECTOR, whose best ever turf RPR was recorded in victory on his sole previous course visit (C&D) and for whom Hollie Doyle is a noteworthy booking. Heer’s Sadie rounds off the shortlist.
Top of the list is Roger Varian’s unexposed filly LOVE TROPHY POWER, who landed the odds under a positive ride in a novice event last month and is open to more progress now dropped to 5f on her handicap debut. Most of the others have something to prove but Meganseigthteen made a promising start for her new yard when a well-backed third at Windsor and could pose a serious threat if she can back that up.
