Had very little to spare in Newbury maiden (6f, good) last month but proved game and had several subsequent winners behind him; could go well.

The runner with the most experience, having raced five times; therefore possibly vulnerable to bigger improvers but has a solid record and won the Woodcote at Epsom (6f, good) most recently; 2-2 under William Buick.

Absent since his front-running fourth over 5f at Windsor in early April; returns in much deeper waters and holds weak claims on bare form.

Justified favouritism at Fairyhouse (6f, good) last time, building on his Curragh debut effort; however, he's well down this pack on bare form and needs to improve a good deal further.

Close third to Faisal Road at Yarmouth then had a straightforward task at Musselburgh (7f, good) where he made all for an easy success in weak race; goes into a much stronger field this time but may improve further.

Churchill colt who is related to numerous winners and cost 440,000gns as a yearling; finished 2l fourth to Dark Thirty at Newbury (6f) and should build on that promise; one to consider.

Well-bred colt who created a highly favourable impression with his emphatic success in Leopardstown maiden (7f, good) last month and looks a smart prospect; trainer has won this race six times, including in four of the last six years; strong credentials.

Stablemate of Finn's Charm; justified favouritism at Lingfield (7f, good) on second start, easily beating a subsequent winner; however, the suspicion is that others have greater potential; flashed her tail in both runs.

Won by only a whisker at Haydock (7f, soft) ten days ago but he's from a typically smart Juddmonte family and has plenty of potential judged on that pedigree; one of three once-raced contenders for the Gosden yard.

Debut winner at Yarmouth (6f, good to firm) one month ago, leading inside the final 1f and holding on to beat a couple of subsequent scorers, including Finn's Charm; should be capable of progress; not dismissed.

Showed some promise at Yarmouth but is held by Alzahir on that form and, judged on breeding, should be more interesting when sent over 1m+ later on.

Sea The Stars colt who nearly made a winning debut at Yarmouth (7f, good) where he started joint-favourite and went down by only a short head; the Gosden stable has won this contest three times, most recently in 2014; open to progress and enters calculations.

Comfortably made a successful debut at the Curragh (7f, good) in a maiden that Point Lonsdale won in 2021 before following up in this race; bought by new owners for a whopping £900,000 at the Goffs London Sale on Monday; very interesting prospect.

60,000gns foal, 60,000gns yearling; by Ulysses out of unraced sister to useful 6f-8.6f winner Supersta; sole newcomer in the field and this looks a tough introduction; best watched unless the market speaks positively.

Verdict

Alfred Munnings holds obvious claims but CRYPTO FORCE is an interesting alternative at bigger odds. The Foxes should improve.
