A weekly list of horses to follow:

IMPERIAL BAILIWICK: stepped up on all her previous form when finishing a good third to Great Deeds in Royal Ascot's Windsor Castle Stakes on Friday, just a head behind the second Bid For Blue. She can win further races over the minimum trip when dropped slightly in class. (M Usher)

IZZA: was thrown in at the deep end on Thursday when making her debut as the only filly in the Chesham Stakes at the Royal meeting, but did well to finish 9 1/2 lengths fourth to State Performer and well clear of the also- rans. Improvement looks sure to follow on this promising start. (C Brittain)

KITHANGA: not the stable jockey's choice in a Newmarket maiden on Friday evening, but came out best of the trainer's four-runner team. Made steady headway before staying on well into second behind odds-on Imaginary. The 10-furlong trip there will probably prove to be a minimum. (L Cumani).

MONASTIC FLIGHT: had no luck on his seasonal debut at Edinburgh last Monday, where he was hampered by a rival unseating its rider before finishing sixth to Lawnswood Junior. He was backed as if better things were expected and can be given another chance. (B Rothwell)

SANS ECOCIDE: outpaced until running on inside the final furlong on debut at Newmarket on Friday. Signs of ability, but will need at least seven furlongs. (N Wright).
