This 2 year old son of Kingman is an imposing type physically, and shaped as if he had lots of promise when making a winning start to his career. This came in a 7f maiden at Sandown in July, where he lead 2f out and ended up winning cosily by 3 lengths.

Looks the sort to impress next time out so could well go on to bigger and better things. Steps up in grade and looks the worthy favourite. One to follow in future runs too.

Showed promise on debut when keeping on well in a maiden at Goodwood and then followed up with two wins since.

An easy winner at Newbury over 6f and proceeded to take a big step forward when following up in a Group 3 at Goodwood, beating the likes of Rocket Rodney and Walbank.

Coped well with the drop to 5f so trip will not be an issue.

Looks a very smart filly and has a big chance here. Needs to be considered and can put it up to the favourite.

Has been a consistent top-class horse for trainer, Alan King and put up one of the best performances in recent times when completing a 5-timer with an astonishing run in the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle, carrying 10-8.

He ran fairly well last time out, when finishing third to Kyprios in the Goodwood Cup on ground that does not really suit him.

He will get much better conditions here (a softer going) and looks the one they all have to beat.

Has shown signs of steady progression when improving his form for new yard, since leaving Roger Varian.

Was victorious when landing a 21-runner 6f York handicap in May going off at a big price of 18/1 that day.

Can draw lines through his last couple of outings and may have more to offer moving forwards. One to be interested in.

A race that has many newcomers and this El Kabeir colt was foaled in January of 2020. Dam unraced sister to smart 7f/1m winner Golden Goal and the market can be a guide for this debutant.

Quite possibly one of the picks of the newcomers and may have a chance for a yard who does well with their 2 year olds.

Chanced.

Has placed on two of his first three starts so far and is a well-bred colt from the ever impressive Shadwell Stud.

He continued his progress when runner-up in a minor event at Wolverhampton last month, going off as a 13/8 favourite that day.

His opening mark looks reasonable and has a great chance now switching to nursery company. Respected.

This 3 year old daughter of Dubawi looked a talented filly when winning on debut at Newcastle in May.

She comfortably scored again with a second win in her third career start in a minor event at Kempton last month.

Goes handicapping and you would think there is more to come from what will be a stiffer test for her. Highly respected nonetheless.
