Ryan Moore

Hoo Ya Mal

J: Ryan Moore
T: George Boughey
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-3
OR: 116
Days: 54

Ran a massive race when second in the Derby at odds of 150/1. It looks like the mile and a half is his optimum trip on that evidence, and he’s now with George Boughey who’s in good form and he has top pilot Ryan Moore on board.

On his Derby form, he’ll be hard to keep out of the frame.

Masekela

J: Jason Watson
T: Andrew Balding
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-3
OR: 108
Days: 21

Ran to a good level as a 2yo, and he improved for the extra distance in the Derby, running a very solid fourth. His run last time out was not great though, Masekela was far too keen and pulled his chance away in the early stages of the race.

He’s hard to keep a lid on, but he’s clearly lots of ability.

Winless since his debut win at Leicester, but he’s been running to a relatively useful level.

His 4th last time out at Royal Ascot in the Hampton Court reads well, he’s up in trip here and that looks like it could suit. He has a chance, but he’ll have to improve a good few lbs.

A winner last time out at Navan when winning by 2L from Shajak in second. The field were strung out nicely that day so that’s a positive, but the level of form he’s bringing into this is a long way off what’s required to win.

He’s well bred, he could just be a slow burner?

Two from two so far in his career, and he won with authority last time out at Newbury. However, he only has novice form to his name, and that’s a long way off what’s needed to win here as plenty of these have very useful group form.

Plenty of untapped potential but this looks a big ask on just his third start.

A short head winner of the Bahrain Trophy last time out at Newmarket from Al Qareem in second. Prior to that, he ran a super race at Royal Ascot behind Secret State (won yesterday).

He’s clearly going the right way and he toughed it out well last time out. He’s improving all the time whilst running to a very high level.

Impossible to rule out.

William Buick

New London

N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-3
OR: 109
Days: 20

Progressive. New London won a competitive handicap last time out at Newmarket, and went clear to win by three lengths. His superiority was plain to see last time out and he was clearly off a very handy mark.

He is a very well bred horse who goes for top connections, if he’s improved again, he may well be up to this. Fascinating contender.

Progressive Awtaad gelding who’s done well in handicap company so far this season. His last two starts have been in group company, and he’s not disgraced himself by any means.

He was only just beaten by Deauville Legend last time out and he went down fighting. Tough as nails and progressive, that’s a nice blend of qualities to have.

Hard to ignore.

Won the Glasgow Stakes last time out in relentless fashion from the front, beating Groundbreaker into second with the field strung out like washing behind him.

He’s obviously going the right way and he looks to have a touch of class. He hated the track in the Derby, and if you throw that out, he’s an unbeaten colt. Good chance.

Grand Alliance ran a cracker last time out behind the useful Changingoftheguard at Royal Ascot in the King Edward VII Stakes.

He was beaten by a short head, but one stride after the line he was in front. He’s been ultra-consistent and progressive thus far, and this trip looks like his optimum.

Good chance.
