Ran a cracker last time out in the Barberstown Castle Sapphire Stakes at the Curragh behind Ladies Church and Mooneista.

On that evidence, he’s in with a massive shout. His lifetime form suggests this is well within range, he is a useful horse, but his style of running will require luck in running.

Has bundles of ability, but he’ll need some luck to win.

Winner of the Palace House stakes last time out at Newmarket from Existent in second. He’s a good sprinter who often runs really well in this sort of race – but his trainer, Charlie Hills is in desperate form at the moment and he’s without a winner in over two weeks, which has to be of huge concern.

Winner of a G2 sprint in Meydan early this year. He then had a lay-off and ran in the King’s Stand stakes at Royal Ascot where he ran a solid 9th, possibly on the wrong side of the track.

He has been a bit in and out in his career, but his best form puts him in with a cracking shout here.

Raasel

Days: 27

Raasel is a sprinter well on the up. He’s progressed from handicap company into group company and he continues to run mightily well.

He won last time out in the Coral Charge (G3) and he was well on top at the finish. He had several of these in behind him there, and there’s no reason why that form should be reversed.

Top chance.

Weight: 9-4
OR: 106
Days: 27

Fourth last time out at Sandown in the Coral Charge behind a few of these. Existent has been largely progressive throughout his career, but he’s yet to win at this level.

He’s clearly a sprinter going the right way and he has age on his side to boot. He will have a chance if building on his effort last time out.

OR: 110
Days: 45

Ran a mighty race when third in the King’s Stand last time out at Royal Ascot when seemingly unfancied at 200/1. That was a monumental effort on balance with his prior form, but if he runs to the same level again here, that must put him bang there.

Huge claims if backing up his effort last time out.

J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Robert Cowell
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-4
OR: 105
Days: 36

Winner of a C3 conditions race two starts ago at Beverley. Last time out he was well outclassed in listed company in France when much better was expected.

He has good handicap form, but that simply isn’t enough in this company – Clarendon House looks sure to be outclassed again.

Days: 45

A winner of a French G3 two starts ago before running in the King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot. Ponntos looked well outclassed there at Ascot, and that was his first effort on British soil.

He will have to leave that well behind him should he be making an impact there.

Weight: 9-0
OR: 106
Days: 20

Ran to a solid level as a 2yo, but he’s largely frustrated this year. He was a well beaten eighth last time out at York in the City Walls stakes, and the market suggested that much better was expected.

He looks to be short of group company on the evidence we have, so this looks a tough ask.

Vertiginous ran to a good level last year as a two year old, but she’s looked out of sorts this year so far. She’s ran twice and she’s been well beaten twice.

She was last, last time out at Haydock in the Sandy Lane stakes (G2), and she didn’t seem to have many excuses. She’s likely to be outclassed again.

Easy to ignore.

Profitable colt, who’s going from strength to strength. He ran a cracker when 9/4f last time out when second to Raasel in the Coral Charge.

He’s clearly still improving and this level looks well within range, Mitbaahy looks sure to have a top chance here.
