Racked up two on the bounce, culminating in a G3 win at Newmarket in the Criterion in cracking style. He’s ran twice since, finishing 3rd and 5th.

His third behind Sandrine and Kinross looks solid, but his most recent fifth would be cause for concern. Is he now paying for a largely fruitful summer?

Al Suhail spent the majority of last summer running to a high level, consistently. Last season culminated in a group two win at Newmarket.

However, he was hugely disappointing at Meydan when odds on favourite, finishing 13th of 16 runners.

He’s not made the track since, so he’ll have to be in rude health to take this. Without the benefit of any recent action, he’s probably hard to fancy.

Winner of a G3 at the Curragh by 5L in September last year, he then ran on Champions Day at Ascot in the British Champions Sprint (G1) when he was 3/1f, but he could only manage fourth.

He’s another we’ve not seen since so it’s hard to have full confidence in a horse we’ve not seen for just under a year.

Avoidable.

Looks to be progressing still. Brad The Brief took his form to a new level last time out when winning the Greenland Stakes (G2) in good style from the very useful Mooneista and G1 winner A Case Of You in second and third respectively.

That’s probably some of the best form on show here.He doesn’t have the sexiest profile but he’s on an upward curve and dangerous to write off.

Second to Sandrine last time out in the Lennox at Glorious Goodwood with Pogo and Sacred in behind too.

This looks a key piece of form in context to today, and Kinross ran a very solid race there, he was probably very unlucky not to win too. He should be able to reverse that form and he has the beating of several others in here.

Hugely dangerous.

5th last time out in the Lennox which looks a key piece of form for this. She had been running really well prior to that 5th, but there could be a case to be made that she lacks consistency. She is hard to predict, but she has the right form and bundles of ability.

Hard to dismiss entirely.

Winner last time out at Newbury in the Hungerford stakes (G2). He had some very useful horses in behind there so that looks a good showing on the formbook.

The seven furlongs looks like it suits him to a tee, and if he’s no worse for wear from his success just last week, he could take some stopping in his current mood.

Something of an Ascot specialist. He won at the Royal meeting before finishing 4th on his next two starts. Last time out he was fourth in a French G1 behind Highfield Princess, Minzaal, and Garrus when running on all the way to the line.

That piece of G1 form against quality horses represents a solid run, and this extra furlong should suit today on the evidence of the Prix Maurice De Gheest form.

Top chance.

Sandrine

Weight: 9-0

Days: 25

Sandrine looked like one of the leading 2yo fillies last year. She then ran a 5th in the 2000 Guineas and continued at the mile trip twice more.

With no success connections dropped her another furlong to the 7F trip last time out at Glorious Goodwood where she won the Lennox stakes in game fashion, from Kinross in second.

That looks the key piece of form and she’s comparatively unexposed at today’s trip. She must have a massive chance.

Winner of the 7F G2 Ballycorus Stakes two starts ago at Leopardstown. Dr Zempf then ran third behind Pearls Galore and Order Of Australia at the Curragh on his most recent start. He clearly suits the 7F trip, and he’s relatively unexposed in contrast with a lot of today’s rivals.

Hugely interesting contender.
