2.40: CITY GAMBLER has a decent chance here, having run really well when a somewhat unlucky second on her first attempt at this trip at Leicester last time. She is now 3lb lower, with the distinct prospect of better to come. Byzantium may well improve now he tries this longer trip and this son of Shirley Heights may well be the main danger.

3.10:. Halloa will have her supporters after her good third in the Sweet Solera at Newmarket, as will well-regarded maiden winner Circle Of Gold, but both may succumb to HASTY WORDS. She showed good acceleration at Sandown and may not have been quite at her best at Newmarket afterwards.

3.40: Praetorian Gold, an easy winner here in June, cannot be passed over lightly, but ROGER ROSS is the one who stands out. Mark Flower has done really well with this colt at a mile, and there is little doubt that he will prove at least as good over this extra furlong. His second of 18 last time reads well enough as it is, added to which he did not get much luck in running.
