This 2 year old son of Oasis Dream looks a fairly promising colt.

He finished third of 12 in a maiden at this C&D on his last run, and looks the type to progress further in future appearances.He is one of a few horses in this that have racecourse experience, that should count for a lot so he has to be of interest.

In the mix here and could show major improvement. Big player.

Weight: 9-5
OR: 114
Days: 203

Godolphin play a strong looking hand in this race as all three of their runners occupy the first three places in the market.

Siskany is a very smart gelded son of Dubawi, who has last been seen in Dubai and Saudi Arabia.

He was a three-time winner last year and added a Meydan listed race to his record in January.

Another good run saw him finish third of 14 other rivals in a high-quality handicap in Saudi in February.

He has not been seen since but has ran well fresh in the past, which will not be an issue. Sure to be fighting it out at the end, highly respected back on UK soil.

Richard Hannon

Days: 50

Trainer, Richard Hannon runs two in this race and when looking at the price, it suggests this is his ‘less fancied’ runner, but form shows he could be open to major progress here.

He shaped very well on debut, when third at Newmarket just over 7 weeks ago.

He ended up pulling clear with a couple of decent looking experienced rivals, including this year’s Gimcrack winner, Noble Style. This looks a difficult task on second run but could improve massively.

At a bigger price he for sure looks one to consider if looking elsewhere from the short priced favourite.

OR: 103
Days: 51

Yet another race where Godolphin have a few runners, and this 3 year old son of Dubawi has won three of his four career starts so far.

He quickly notched up a pair of 1¼m maiden/novice events earlier this year.

Bounced back after a penultimate second placed effort at Ascot, by winning a Goodwood handicap in impressive fashion last time out.

Raised 8lb for that win, but could be victorious again here.

Has looked somewhat of a Group level performer, so a major contender for team Appleby. Worthy favourite.

A Sea The Stars colt who finished sixth on debut at Ffos Las, 16/1 that day and looks to be a horse who is bred for steady improvement in races to come.

This is an open looking affair, so has to be respected for a trainer in very good form.

Should come on from debut run and will be a horse to keep an eye on, especially for next season as a 3 year old.

Roger Varian

Days: 19

Showed pleasing signs at the start of the summer, winning a maiden at Brighton and a Newmarket handicap both of which were ran over a mile.

Last few runs have not been as good, but there have been excuses for those, especially at Ripon last time out.

Steps up to 1m4f for the first time which should suit him as he is bred to appreciate the longer distance.

His sister won over this trip, so he needs to find more but certainly not discounted in this company.
