Trip and track are ideal as he showed when winning the Great Voltigeur. The only tiny worry is the ground as he’s not raced on soft.

Highland Chief loves cut and was second in this year’s Great Voltigeur so can follow him home.


METHOD was fancied for the Group 1 Middle Park  only for his saddle to slip. He was an impressive Listed winner at Newbury before that and looks a cut above these rivals.

Atalis Bay won easily at Haydock and warrants this rise in class in conditions that should suit.

Royal Address loved the mud when winning in France and is respected.

2.05 YORK

CROWNTHORPE won this last year and ran his best race since when a close third at Haydock. He’s only 1lb higher and should be right there.

Hesslewood won well latest, likes this trip and looks a threat.

Ouzo has run well a couple of times this term without winning and looks on a fair mark.

Chance finished strongly at Sandown and has more to offer over this trip.


NAZUNA went close in the Group 2 Rockfel here last time and looks hard to beat dropping in grade. She stays well and Roger Varian is in good form.

Joseph O’Brien travellers are always respected and his Thinking Of You was unlucky not to strike at The Curragh 12 days ago. She will improve while Saffron Beach won her maiden over C&D and looks a nice prospect.

2.40 YORK

FAVORITE MOON loves a slog and will get it. He hammered his rivals last time and is an improving stayer.

Prince Alex relished this trip at Haydock and a 4lb rise in the weights is fair.

Strawberry Rock had loads in hand when winning on handicap debut at Ripon and can improve.

Zeeband just outfought Ispahan at Thirk and they are both on the upgrade too.


KHALOOSY has not matched his Britannia win at Royal Ascot since but that was so impressive and the stronger pace over 7f should be ideal. He handles cut and is lightly raced.

Pogo has a Group 1 third on his CV and wasn’t far away at York.

Zakouski has strong form in Dubai and has won over this trip. He’ll be a danger if handling slower ground. Happy Power looks the pick of the Balding pair.


MCFABULOUS ended last season on a high with a hot handicap win at Kempton. This trip suits and give in the ground is ideal.

Courtanbould looks a big price for a horse in hot form at lower levels. He had 12 lengths in hand when scoring at Fontwell.

Getaround looked a big improver at Perth latest and is another with a fitness edge.


PRETTY GORGEOUS can make it 2-1 over Shale. The tip got the better of the Galileo filly in the Debutante at The Curragh before Shale turned the tables there last time.

But Pretty Gorgeous met traffic problems that day before finishing strongly.

Isabella Giles beat Nazuna in the Rockfel here latest so see how she goes in the 2.25.

John Gosden’s Indigo Girl is capable of better and won her maiden in the mud.


KIPPS keeps hitting the frame and is worth an each-way tickle in another red-hot handicap. He is off the same mark as his Ascot third and likes this trip.

Surrey Pride battled to strike at Chester latest and is a threat.

Brilliant Light looked to be crying out for this trip when winning over 1m2f at Sandown.

Shandoz was impressive in landing a hat-trick at Ascot and could take another step forward. Doubling Dice is another on the upgrade.
