Minor promise only so far and she's eligible for far weaker races than this.

Verdict

DOUBLE REFLECTION stayed on well to score over this trip at Leicester and would be a danger to all if allowed to dominate from the front again. Floria Tosca is worth a market check now moving into handicaps and is expected to show up well off an opening perch of 73. The pair that beat Gravina at Chepstow have registered four victories between them since, so Alan King's filly is another to consider.

Verdict

GRAVINA kept on well for third in a race that is working out on handicap debut at Chepstow last month, and with Ryan Moore an eye-catching booking, she looks the way to go. Floria Tosca is just the type to go on progressing, while Double Reflection bids to follow up her Leicester win.

Verdict

PENNYWHISTLE lost little in defeat when a length third on her introduction at Kempton and she is expected to build on that performance with the run now behind her. Embrace The Moment should be all the wiser for the experience gained on debut when fourth at Newbury and she is entitled to take closer order, while Blissful Beauty also has a solid chance having been touched off at Deauville earlier in the month.

Verdict

PENNYWHISTLE caught the eye in no uncertain terms under a hands-and-heels ride starting out at Kempton a fortnight ago and she looks just the type to step up markedly on that. Blissful Beauty will probably give her most to think about.

Solid start for new yard when runner-up at Leicester (1m) in May. Beverley display 13 days ago was rather flat however, and she's eligible for lesser races than this.

Verdict

GEORGE VILLIERS returned a beaten favourite over 1m2f here last time but better is expected now he drops back to a distance known to suit. John Gosden's charge finished a neck second over a stiff mile at Sandown on his penultimate outing and this 3lb higher mark is unlikely to prevent him mounting a bold bid. Miss Mumtaz, Illusional and Ateem also need to bounce back from lacklustre recent efforts in a contest lacking depth.

Verdict

GEORGE VILLIERS possibly didn't relish the step up to 10f, certainly at this stage of his career, when disappointing on his most recent outing. Yet, his return second over this sort of trip at Sandown was a solid display and he is worth another chance. Illusional could emerge next best of the trio in opposition.

Verdict

SCOTTISH JIG left behind a moderate debut effort at Kempton when striking over this trip at Newbury and she is expected to follow up under a penalty. Anaakeed should be all the wiser for the experience gained when fifth at Yarmouth on debut and has place possibilities, likewise Godolphin representative Arabian Gift, who didn't convince over 1m2f at Doncaster last time and could benefit from this drop back in distance.

Verdict

This should be an informative contest, but SCOTTISH JIG was impressive on last month's Newbury return and she is probably up to conceding weight all round. Arabian Gift still holds a Group 1 entry despite her Doncaster flop, while Rawdaa and Ummalnar are interesting newcomers.

Most progressive in 2017, winning 4 times, though he is yet to click this season.

Verdict

Mirza showed there is plenty of life left in his 11-year-old legs when backing up his Listed second at Naas with a solid Group 3 third in the Coral Charge at Sandown last time. Rae Guest's veteran lowers his sights somewhat for this assignment and is capable of going well on these terms. A Momentofmadness could be a potential pace rival for the lead here, though, and perhaps this may be set up to suit HADDAF, who makes some appeal on his Scurry victory last month.

Verdict

A MOMENTOFMADNESS should be suited by this sort of scenario. He has a good record in small-field events and may take some pegging back if allowed to dominate. Veteran Mirza is feared most.

Improving fast, completing the hat-trick in good style at Carlisle last week. Looks well treated under a penalty.

Verdict

DIZZY G completed a hat-trick when going in over this trip at Carlisle last time and there is every chance she can defy a penalty and extend her winning sequence. Poet's Vanity is hurtling down the handicap and was far from disgraced at Haydock last time. Ryan Moore has been booked and she has the requisite ability to figure now eased in grade. Lady Dancealot, who found Listed company too hot at Salisbury, is another lowering her sights to consider.

Verdict

DIZZY G is improving fast and the manner in which she completed the hat-trick at Carlisle last week suggests she's well-in under a penalty. Restless Rose looks another improving filly, while Poet's Vanity took a step back in the right direction at Haydock 2 weeks ago.

Struggling for form and firmly up against it from out of the weights.

Verdict

ZAFARANAH was thwarted by a nose over this trip at Doncaster last time and is 2lb ahead of the handicapper while turned out on her old rating. Her main danger may be Roger Varian representative Golden Slam, who landed a 6f novice race at Lingfield in 2016 and was returning from a subsequent absence when fifth at Chelmsford 71 days ago. Richard Hannon's grade-dropper Himself could also finish on the premises.

Verdict

GLENN COCO is leniently treated based on AW form and shaped as if capable of taking advantage when a smooth-travelling fifth over further at this course last time, so he could get back to winning ways over a more suitable trip for a stable that's bang in form. Zafaranah is respected on the back of her recent second and Golden Slam is the potential big improver in the field.
