Days: 51

For William Haggas and the Queen, Desert Hero made the perfect start to live racing at the end of June when winning a novice race at Haydock.

Cutting through the soft ground well, he easily powered clear of his rivals to score an easy 2.75 length victory. The second has since came out and boosted the form by winning a novice since. The Sea The Stars Colt couldn’t have won much more easily and with the form working out since he looks the right favourite here.

With him winning on soft ground back in late June, he should have no worries about the current weather.

Lady Bullet

J: Kieran O'Neill
T: Alice Haynes
N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-0
OR: 93
Days: 64

Making her debut way back in April, Lady Bullet shaped well enough to win by half a length over 5 furlongs in maiden company.

Moved up in trip, she ran against her own sex in a novice race off the back of her debut win, she handily defied a penalty to win convincingly. Last seen in the Albany Stakes, she wasn’t disgraced against strong opposition and came home a respectable 6th place.

She moves up in trip again here and it looks like it should suit, however she’ll have to prove herself against the colts.

Andrea Atzeni

The Foxes

J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Andrew Balding
N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-3
OR: 88
Days: 21

A more highly tried sort in the field, The Foxes made his debut back in May over 6 furlongs at Newbury and shaped like a longer trip would suit him and bring out some improvement.

Moved into listed company for his second outing, despite being a maiden, he failed to get involved in deeper waters and only came home in 9th of the 13 runners. Last seen kept at 7 furlongs, he won a decent maiden event at Goodwood.

The form has yet to be really tested since but he shaped nicely enough to win and looks to be improving for his racing.

Louis Steward

Wahaaj

J: Louis Steward
T: Patrick Owens
N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-3
OR: 87
Days: 25

Arriving here a perfect two from two, Wahaaj looks like a promising enough type for Patrick Owens. Running in a maiden event at Nottingham over 6 furlongs, he handily brushed aside his opposition by 3.5 lengths.

The form hasn’t worked out well since but he has backed up his performance by winning a novice race under a penalty. Sent off a short price favourite he again looked smart in beating his rivals easily. But again the form hasn’t worked out particularly well.

It appears that he’s beaten some poor opposition easily so far so it’s hard to assess just how good he might be coming into this.

Richard Kingscote

Dornoch Castle

J: Richard Kingscote
T: Charlie & Mark Johnston
N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-3
OR: 92
Days: 25

Making his debut at Haydock over 7 furlongs back in June, Dornoch Castle made a fantastic first outing to leave seven rivals for dead easily to break his maiden at the first time of asking.

The 2nd came out and franked the form by winning next time out and Dornoch Castle took another step forward to win a novice race under a penalty very easily, justifying a starting price of 1/6.

Moved up into group company off the back of that, he failed to really fire in a better race and faded back into 8th of the 9 runners. His first two outings suggest he deserves a place in this company but he’ll have to leave behind his lacklustre effort last time out.

Pat Dobbs

Silver Knott

J: Pat Dobbs
T: Charlie Appleby
N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-3
OR: N/A
Days: 17

Sporting the all blue of Godolphin, Silver Knott was a fancied favourite to beat Chaldean on debut but was no match for the recent Acomb Stakes winner.

Only managing to come 4th on debut, he still shaped well enough and with plenty of promise at Newbury. Building upon that initial experience he managed to win a novice event last time out at Kempton at prohibitive odds with plenty in hand.

The form of that win has yet to be tested but he will certainly improve for getting his head in front for the first time.

Jason Watson

Defence Of Fort

J: Jason Watson
T: Peter Chapple-Hyam
N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-3
OR: N/A
Days: 42

Only seen once in his career, Defence Of Fort made a startlingly impression to win his debut at Ascot by a wide margin without much fuss.

Despite showing signs of inexperience and taking himself to the rail for guidance, he drew clear in fine fashion in the last furlong. The 2nd and 3rd have run well in defeat recently while the 4th has come out and won a maiden since.

He powered clear like a really promising type at Ascot last time out and will likely have even more to offer here. Not to be dismissed likely.
