Placed in four of eight starts. Beaten 6l by Mo Reserve when second of 7 at 18-1 on his latest outing at Los Alamitos Racecourse over 1m last month. Sure to be in the thick of the action.

Salah historical data/form

Salah had Jefe behind him when runner-up at Los Alamitos but is more exposed than NOBLE PURSUIT, who stepped forward from his introduction to occupy the runner-up berth at Del Mar and can go one better. Mongolian Legend isn't out of it either.

K P Backtothewall historical data/form

GORKY PARK showed his appreciation for having his sights lowered when beating Beyond Precher to the runner-up position at Los Alamitos, and a repeat of that performance may be enough for him to go one better. Color War and Golden Victory can make him work the hardest.

Successful at 4f and 6f. Finished 11l behind Restless Rambler when last of 5 at 16-1 on his latest outing at Los Alamitos Racecourse over 5f last month. Subsequent gelding operation needs to have woken him up.

Toothless Wonder historical data/form

Alvaaro confirmed himself a smart prospect when making it third-time lucky but he won't have faced an opponent with the talent of SAVAGERY, who is back from a break and has kept excellent company in his time. So, too, has Principe Carlo and his confidence was boosted by a Del Mar success.

Matson historical data/form

SHOOTIN MONEY left an ordinary debut well behind him when going down by just a head over track and trip, and compensation awaits tonight. Itsthattime has shown glimmers of ability in better maiden claimers, although Three Footer appeals as a bigger danger.

Win Often historical data/form

Chieftess found only one too strong over a furlong further here, but she was beaten a long way and is passed over in favour of SECRET SQUARE. John Sadler's filly hasn't been disgraced in a couple of Del Mar maiden special weights and will find this easier. Nikkileaks completes the shortlist.

Tiger Dad historical data/form

ONE FLEW SOUTH has been so highly tried this season and has come up short in the Arkansas Derby and Santa Anita Sprint Championship the last twice. He drops out of Grade 1 company now, though, and it will be disappointing if he can't capitalise. Carnivorous and the returning You Must Chill can follow him home.

A six-month absence proved no barrier to success for ETERNAL ENDEAVOUR, with Leonard Powell's mare showing she has the dash for 6f with an impressive comeback victory. If anything, she is better over a route and can follow up at the chief expense of Catoca and Mongolian Empire.

A few of these are returning from breaks, with Drift Away and Bako Sweets of particular interest if sharp enough. Miss Flawless should be back in the winner's enclosure before too long, but SWIRLING has held her form well all year and that consistency earns her the vote.
