Smart gelding. 12/1, tailed-off last of 8 to Matterhorn in Maktoum Challenge Round 3 at Meydan (9.9f), possibly amiss. Off 6 months and questions to answer now.
Smart colt. 7¼ lengths sixth of 7 to Trueshan in listed race at Haydock (11.8f, good, 8/1) 57 days ago. Dangerous to discount as he drops in grade.
Smart gelding. 13/2, 3 lengths fourth of 6 to Le Don De Vie in listed race at Windsor (11.4f, heavy) 14 days ago, slowly away. Shouldn't be far away on his best efforts.
Smart gelding. 18/10, good head second of 8 to Ashrun in Prix de Reux at Deauville (12.4f, good). Certainly has the form to get involved if sharp enough after over a year off.
Useful mare. 33/1, seventeenth of 21 in handicap at York (13.8f, good to soft) 21 days ago, slowly away.
Sextant (13/8), Walton Street (5/2), El Misk (11/2), Desert Fire (13/2), Shailene (7/1), Celtic Art (8/1)
SEXTANT has less to prove than some of his rivals and he is taken to win a trappy little conditions event . His best form gives him decent claims and he's proven his recent well-being unlike others. El Misk hasn't had much racing this year but he is a useful colt who can't be dismissed in a race like this. Walton Street brings the best form into the race but a 13-month absence is off-putting.
