Sunset Bay

J: Rob Hornby
T: Ed Walker
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-4
OR: 88
Days: 16

Sunset Bay appears to be going in the wrong direction. She has failed to even place in her last six outings, though – she has been tried consistently in good company.

She may be one to watch when lowered in grade, but until then – I expect we’ll see her struggle again.

Random Harvest

J: Saffie Osborne
T: Ed Walker
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-4
OR: 96
Days: 34

Ninth of eleven last time out in a Group 3 at Sandown, which was a backward step from her effort prior.

Before her Group 3 flop, Random Harvest looked very progressive in handicaps, and bettered herself further to finish a close second in the Listed Dick Hern Stakes.

If she can get back to anywhere near that form she may rate as an

interesting player.

Jamie Spencer

Romantic Rival

J: Jamie Spencer
T: George Boughey
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-4
OR: 100
Days: 16

Outran her odds of 150/1 last time out when a staying on third of eleven at Doncaster in the Group 3 Sceptre Stakes.

That was most definitely a career best and she must be respected off the back of that. If she continues to improve she could be a player.

Improvised

J: Daniel Tudhope
T: David O'Meara
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-4
OR: 94
Days: 28

Remains winless in over a year now, Improvised seems to have plateaued development wise, but she’s still a solid enough yardstick.

Her trainer David O’Meara seems to be struggling for winners at the moment too – so it may be wise to take a pass.

Mystic Wells

J: Daniel Muscutt
T: George Boughey
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 93
Days: 99

Mystic Wells is a solid enough yardstick, but today’s conditions will likely make this a difficult task. Her best form is at a mile and a quarter and further, dropping back to a mile today may cause an issue.

She is lowered in class though, and she’s a likeable filly who will give her best. Whether that is good enough, we’ll soon find out!

William Buick

Thundershower

J: William Buick
T: John & Thady Gosden
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 93
Days: 48

Thundershower has two wins sandwiched between two unplaced efforts. She was unplaced last time when upped in grade from novice company to listed level, and she certainly fell victim to the calibre of horse there.

She is unexposed, but she doesn’t look up to this level as yet.

David Probert

Whitebeam

J: David Probert
T: Harry & Roger Charlton
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 97
Days: 48

Well-bred daughter of Caravaggio who is looking for a four timer. Whitebeam finished a good enough third on debut before racking up a sequence in novice/handicap events.

She still looks like she’s improving and she may well go in again. Just note – her only try at the mile, she did win (but she fell in over the line) it looked her absolute optimum.

So she may be vulnerable to stronger stayers at the trip?

Arion

J: Tom Marquand
T: Hugo Palmer
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 91
Days: 19

Arion has been tried in good company on several occasions.

Though, it’s not unfair to think that connections may not have found her optimum trip yet, hence the chopping and changing trip wise.

Her best form is probably at a mile and a quarter, and I imagine she can be safely watched today off the back of a few tame efforts.

Ryan Moore

Crystal Caprice

J: Ryan Moore
T: Sir Michael Stoute
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 98
Days: 20

Unplaced in two fillies novice events, before capitalizing on her lowly mark of 69. Since then, she’s gone from strength to strength, and she’s now bidding for the four timer.

She won in good style at Ascot last time out, and there’s probably still improvement to come. In this field, in this heart, she looks the one to beat.

Jim Crowley

Zanbaq

J: Jim Crowley
T: Roger Varian
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 104
Days: 62

Zanbaq is clearly still going the right way. She won on debut before a third in a listed event on just her second start.

She then won another novice and ran a cracker in an ultra-competitive handicap at Royal Ascot.

She did run below par last time out though, her 5th on paper was disappointing – but she was repeatedly hampered and can be forgiven.

She is hugely dangerous.

Robert Havlin

Crenelle

J: Robert Havlin
T: John & Thady Gosden
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 96
Days: 48

Crenelle looks to be going the right way. She’s ran a good third in her last two starts, in handicap company and listed company respectively.

She was probably expected to finish better than third last time out, but she was pestered on the front end and still had some useful rivals behind.

She is well worth another go.
