Cuban Mistress is a tough filly whose latest second in the Listed Dragon Stakes at Sandown makes her the second best of these on paper. The form of that race was franked when third-placed Eddie’s Boy won the Super Sprint at Newbury in impressive style. She was doing all her best work when hitting the final climb at Sandown, and looks ready for a step up in trip, so can reward each-way support at a big price.

Marnie James refound some form on the all-weather last winter for his current yard, and now slips back into Class 4 company having done most of his turf racing in recent times at a couple of grades higher.
His record over 5f on turf in Class 4 handicaps reads 2311 with his wins coming off marks of 82 and 86. He’s now slipped to 80, and while well held at Doncaster last month, that was his first start since early February and was clearly needed.
Zanbaq is favourite after being beaten by Heredia in the Sandringham at Royal Ascot. Herdia finished behind Oscula in the Coral Distaff at Sandown when an odds-on favourite, and it may be that Zanbaq will meet a similar fate. Oscula needs others to underperform if she’s to win, but with Zanbaq very short, and Novemba and Jumbly having a bit to prove, her consistency should see her in the frame at least.

Gale Force Maya should have this race set up for her by the front-running Aberama Gold in the middle stall. That gelding has been back to form in a visor on his last two starts, going down narrowly in a pair of 6f handicaps at Ayr, and Gale Force Maya should be able to track him throughout from her draw in stall 6, before launching a decisive challenge inside the last.
I napped Chiefofchiefs in the Buckingham Palace at Royal Ascot on the basis of his hugely unlucky run in the Victoria Cup, and he was again the eyecatcher, finishing fourth having had to switch across the entire width of the track. He’s ahead of his mark on that evidence, and just needs the rub of the green to prove it.
Best of the speed comes from King Zain in stall 21, and that makes outsider Top Secret of some interest at huge odds from stall 22. Top Secret has disappointed the last two times, but has run twice over course and distance on quick ground and won both times, so he looks overpriced at 40/1 with the strong possibility that he will bounce back under a change of rider, and from what would appear to be the best of the draw.

Westover boosted the Derby form, and looked a proper racehorse when storming away with the Irish equivalent at the Curragh, and he makes most appeal in an intriguing King George, largely because there are question marks over all of his market rivals.
