WILD EDRIC got off the mark at Wolverhampton two starts ago and he was not disgraced in a competitive race last time out. Dubai Discovery is from a top-class North American family, given that her dam is an unraced half-sister to the Grade 1 winner Frosted, and it would be no surprise to see her go well. Others to note are Absolute Dream, Axel Jacklin and Zip.

NIGHT OF GLORY put in some encouraging efforts at this track when last seen back in May and he may improve for the application of a pair of blinkers for the first time. Project Bluebook was sent off favourite for a similar event over two miles here last time out and can be given another chance. Baydar and Suegioo are others who merit places on the shortlist.

SHAILENE finished fourth behind the likes of Magic Wand and Forever Together in the Cheshire Oaks at this track back in May. She was an impressive winner at Chelmsford two starts ago and her defeats either side of that have been at the hands of some high-class rivals. Blakeney Point ran well in the Ebor last time out and is an obvious threat to the selection, while Hochfeld is the pick of the remainder.

ROCKIN ROY seemed to benefit from making all of the running at Beverley on his nursery debut, when holding on gamely in the closing stages, and a 6lb rise on a track which should play to his strengths shouldn't be enough to stop Archie Watson's colt. Deputise returns to the scene of his second career success two starts ago and is respected along with Blyton, who went down by a head at Wolverhampton when last seen.
