The standout form contenders are the Newmarket raiders RULING DYNASTY and Sobegrand. Admittedly they are perhaps not straightforward, as the former has been gelded since his debut effort and the latter has the cheekpieces retained, but the other runners have plenty to find. Despite a six-month absence, Ruling Dynasty may come out on top.

Most of the handicap newcomers are interesting. First choice is ROYAL CAY whose form has substance and who should be suited going beyond 6f for the first time. Lady Manyara, who likewise looks favourably treated, is next on the shortlist. Good Gracious and Violeta are also respected, though with being closely matched on Haydock running 53 days ago they are rather hard to split. Honeymooner may improve for the switch to AW on this second nursery attempt.
Chasing Love has the best form, though sets just an ordinary standard, and Victoria Falls is open to improvement. They may put their experience to good use but nicely bred newcomer BREWING, who is related to plenty of winners for his connections, starts off in a winnable race and will be all the more interesting if the market speaks in his favour. Gun Salute, the other debutant, completes the shortlist.
Back down in class OAHU holds leading form claims and may be able to open his account at the fifth attempt. Jack Of Clubs, who looks open to progress, is feared most ahead of Global Effort and Vixey. Market confidence behind interesting newcomer Dream Mission should be heeded.
Preference is for THUNDER STAR who, judged on breeding, looks open to improvement back on an artificial surface. The AW debutants Zuffolo (second choice) and Castan are solid contenders granted a continuation of their turf consistency, while New Hope Bullet remains of interest.
Judged on their sound recent C&D form, VINDOBALA (nap) and Sandret are particularly solid contenders, in that order of preference. Thrave, who won here last October, is third choice ahead of Rampage then Timbukone.

The drop to 0-55 level may enable MINHAAJ to regain the winning thread on only her third start for Brian Ellison. Second choice is Paddy K, who caught the eye at Yarmouth on the same day that the selection ran respectably at this venue. Khulu and Chester Le Streak complete the shortlist.
Babe Alicious comes here in good form but she is not invincible off her current mark now back at this track for the first time since 2020. SEE MY BABY JIVE ran her best race for a long time when overhauled at the very last moment over C&D 11 days ago and there is surely something for her on this surface.
