Days: 13

Got off the mark on his third attempt last time out at Bath, he did win well but the calibre of race doesn't look up to scratch.

He is a winner and he does have a speedy pedigree, but on form he has it all to do to get involved here.

Fast son of Ardad, Crispy Cat's National Stakes form will have been advertised with Maria Branwell in the Queen Mary yesterday, it'll be interesting to see how she goes...

But the form looks like some of the strongest on offer and Crispy Cat has looked rather precocious to date.

Good chance and at fair odds.

The Ridler

1/3 so far, and he was arguably unlucky in running last time out. He was a winner prior to that at Ripon, but he didn't stamp his mark completely and he certainly didn't leave a *group horse* impression.

He needs to improve, as the level of form he's shown to date doesn't suggest he can get involved here.

The Antarctic

Age: 2
Weight: 9-3
OR: N/A
Days: 32

The Antarctic is a full brother to Battaash, and The Antarctic himself has shown a good degree of precociousness thus far.

He has won 2/2 and he's battled hard to do so. This ground should be more his bag. A few of the horses he beat last time out went in yesterday's Windsor Castle, so it might be worth seeing how they run.

Top chance.

Last on debut at Musselburgh, but left that well behind next time out at York in a good looking race. He was coltish on debut and I think it's reasonable to draw a line through it.

On the face of his York novice, he's ran to a decent level, but he must improve again.

Sioux Nation colt, who won impressively over C&D on his first start. He beat previous winner Whistle And Flute there, and the pair pulled nicely clear.

Bakeel looks full of speed and he surely has a cracking each way chance in this.

Another Sioux Nation colt, Brave Nation won on debut at Doncaster, by 6L in impressive fashion. The form of the race hasn't worked out amazingly well, but he could only beat what's in front of him.

He will need to step forward again, but you can't knock the visual impression he left.

Ran very well to beat Yahsat in a listed race at York last time. Lots of fillies in behind, will have gone in yesterday's Queen Mary so it's worth glancing to see how the form stacked up. She's done nothing wrong to date, and she will get a handy allowance here...

Dangerous.

Days: 20

Only 5th of 6 on debut but left that well behind at Brighton when making all and putting experience to good use. He only won by half a length, but he was probably value for the distance.

He'll need to improve as his form doesn't lay up with some of these.

Well bred colt. He ran in the key novice race to date, at Ascot with; Noble Style, Redemption Time and Royal Scotsman. The form is working out very well and it looked an above average novice.

He then confirmed his promise when winning next time out at York, in very good style by 7L. Must have a top chance on form.

My First Rodeo

T: John Ryan
N/A

Weight: 9-3
OR: N/A

Unraced son of Kodiac, it's rare a horse come here without a race first, and he's priced accordingly. His pedigree is ok but it's not eye-popping, he's without any experience and he's against group horses on debut.

Phenomenally hard to recommend.
