Verdict

KUWAIT STATION was biting off far more than he could chew in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, but he was allowed to come home in his own time once his chance was gone and a return to the form of his debut victory at Ripon would make him very tough to beat. Axe Axelrod is the obvious danger after a close-up second on his Hamilton introduction, while Jordan's Chris is progressing, albeit very steadily.

Verdict

AXE AXELROD failed to live up to his market billing when runner-up on debut at Hamilton but that defeat was more owing to greenness than anything else. Likely to be sharper this time, the Street Sense colt should prove too strong for the penalised Kuwait Station, who is the clear main danger. Fuente's debut wasn't devoid of promise and he'll probably do better in time.

Lightly-raced maiden. Cheekpieces on for 1st time, 4¾ lengths sixth of 9 to Vallarta in handicap at this C&D (good to firm, 33/1) 14 days ago.

Verdict

Vallarta won nicely over this course and distance and a 3lb rise is far from insurmountable, but he does have to give plenty of weight to BRENDAN. Jim Goldie's gelding has been a regular at the track, finishing second here over 5f before running nicely over this trip a day later. He acquitted himself well from 6lb out of the handicap last time and could take some beating. Supaulette made a decent fist of things on her handicap debut at Wolverhampton and has claims if as effective on turf.

Verdict

Recent winning form is at a premium in this handicap and the fact that VALLARTA was successful over this C&D a fortnight ago makes him more appealing than most. A 3 lb rise for that looks fair and he is taken to follow up, perhaps at the chief expense of the lightly-raced Supaulette. The likes of Brendan, Duncan of Scotland and House of Cards should all be in there pitching for minor honours.

Verdict

JABBAROCKIE won with a bit up his sleeve at Haydock on Friday and Eric Alston's decision to turn him out quickly under a penalty could prove a shrewd move. Batten The Hatches has been competing in better races, though he remains 6lb higher than his last winning mark. Fool For You has claims if forgiven a poor run at Beverley, while Primo's Comet could be a factor if proving he's as effective on turf as the all-weather.

Verdict

BATTEN THE HATCHES hasn't made much of an impact so far this season but he nevertheless makes plenty of appeal off this reduced mark back in 0-85 company. The in-form Jabbarockie is an obvious threat following his recent Haydock victory and Fool For You will be a player if reproducing the form of her penultimate start. Conversely, Primo's Comet appears to be more of a force on the AW.

Fifth of 8 in handicap (18/1) at this C&D (good to firm) 14 days ago. Hard to make a case for.

Verdict

Plenty here with chances, including last-start course-and-distance second Royal Duchess and Jessie Allan, who scored over 6f here last time. Naples Bay was third behind Jessie Allan and certainly wasn't stopping so could take closer order, but preference is for ROBBEN RAINBOW. David Barron's charge wasn't winning out of turn at Catterick, having run well over this track and trip in both previous outings.

Verdict

VENTURA ROYAL took a step back in the right direction when third at Hamilton and, 2 lb lower now and with this drop back in trip a good move, she earns the vote. Robben Rainbow remains on a fair mark following his recent Catterick victory and may emerge as the main danger, though Jessie Allan, a winner over 6f here last time, and Ayr regular Royal Duchess merit respect, too.

12/1, good head second of 8 to Stardrifter in handicap at this C&D (good to firm) 14 days ago. Each-way claims once again.

Verdict

There was only a head between Stardrifter and I Am Dandy when they fought out a finish over course and distance a fortnight ago, but they may have to settle for minor honours behind MISCHIEF MANAGED. Tim Easterby's top weight has maintained an excellent level of consistency this campaign and remains on a handy mark. Reinforced took a step back in the right direction at Carlisle, and Ingleby Angel is another to consider on his debut for the Colin Teague yard.

Verdict

MISCHIEF MANAGED has done little wrong this year, putting in another good shift when runner-up on the AW last time, and he looks the most solid option. Reinforced stepped up on his inauspicious reappearance display when third at Carlisle and a reproduction of that should see him go well. I Am Dandy is taken to reverse recent C&D placings with Stardrifter and also play a part in the finish.

Temperamental sort. Course winner. Eighth of 9 in handicap at this course (10f, firm, 33/1) 15 days ago. 1 lb 'wrong' at the weights.

Verdict

COVIGLIA has already paid his way in 2018, with two neck defeats sandwiching wins at this venue and Wolverhampton. He will enjoy being reunited with Nathan Evans and can confirm last month's superiority over Lotara, although Jim Goldie's mare has improved since then, finishing fourth here before being touched off at Hamilton on Thursday. Corked was a length and a position ahead of Lucky Violet when fourth at Musselburgh, but the latter was only half a length behind Coviglia previously.

Verdict

LOTARA found just one too good off a 1 lb higher mark at Hamilton last week and is very much the one to beat on that evidence, for all that she remains winless on turf following 15 attempts. Coviglia has improved this season and looks sure to give another good account, while Crazy Tornado will be a danger to all if bouncing back, given that he's now 8 lb below his last winning mark.
