3.05: EGOLI has had knee problems and her odds drifted badly before her debut here two weeks ago (7f). But she won easily and this well-connected filly has a plenty of potential. Stablemate Apache Star must be a danger. She is capable of delivering a strong late challenge and is pursuing a hat-trick. Dragonada was beaten five lengths into second place by Dust Dancer at Salisbury last time, but the latter has since won a Group Three contest at Deauville.
3.40: Moon Strike is in terrific shape but it would be unwise to take too short a price now that this seven-year-old has been raised a further 7lb by the handicapper. Soviet Leader represents a stable that has hit top form lately. YOUDONTSAY failed to figure at Epsom last time and this stiffer track should suit the mare. She could run well at big odds.
4.10: REGAL CASTLE steps up to 1m 6f for the first time and this son of Caerleon and Oaks and St Leger heroine Sun Princess should certainly appreciate it. He is 4lb higher for winning over 1m 4f at Pontefract last time but today's distance should help to defy the handicapper. Dick Hern's stable has a high strike-rate at present and this colt's absence from the track of almost three months should not matter.
4.45: The claims of Song Of Freedom are hard to ignore. This colt's only defeat in his three latest runs came when he stumbled three furlongs out at Ascot. PATRIOT GAMES disappointed at Glorious Goodwood but ran very well here in July when second to Trojan Risk and just gets the vote.Reuse content
