Promising last year and he showed useful form when a close second in Newcastle Listed race (1m, AW) on his reappearance; looked out of his depth in the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket (1m, good to firm; 80-1) next time, finishing behind Naval Crown and Mutasaabeq; will need a big career best if he's to emulate Molatham who won this race for the Varian yard 12 months ago.

Classy as sprinting 2yo and looked well suited by 7f when narrowly beating Naval Crown in the Free Handicap at Newmarket (good) on reappearance; dropping back in trip seemed against him last time (finished behind Creative Force when favourite) but he could get back on track today with his stamina tested more fully; won the Windsor Castle at this meeting last year; probably handles soft ground and shaped well on good to firm on debut; respected.

Sprang a 150-1 shock in the Coventry (good) at this meeting last year and good second in the Morny (soft) next time, but his form in two races this season has been of a much lower standard; seemed beaten fair and square in Listed race at Sandown last time and he makes limited appeal for now.

Didn't do himself justice in the Coventry last June but he is unbeaten otherwise, taking his form to a new level when beating Spycatcher by a comfortable 3l in 6f Listed race at Newbury last time; handles good to firm and good to soft ground, and he shapes as if this step up to 7f will suit; likeable, progressive and one of the most persuasive.

Best effort when chasing home star 3yo Poetic Flare in Listed race at Leopardstown (7f, good) in April; hung left under pressure when a beaten favourite over 1m (should be suited by that trip and beyond) next time; may not be fully exposed yet but he needs to up his game.

Improved significantly to win his last three starts in Britain as a 2yo, notably when quickening well in the Royal Lodge at Newmarket (1m); tailed off in Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf at Keeneland in November; has raced only on good/good to firm ground; no easy task under penalty after a layoff.

Highly tried since an impressive debut success at Haydock (6f, good to soft) last summer, never the slightest threat when sixth of 11 in Group 3 at Newbury (7f, good; 10-1; just over 4l behind Mehmento) on reappearance; Richard Fahey has won the Jersey twice in the last five years, but others in this line-up have more pressing claims.

Has improved markedly this season, winning Listed event at Nottingham (6f, soft) and running a blinder in the face of a stiffer task when a close fourth in Group 2 Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock (6f, heavy; 6-1); returning to 7f will probably be fine but her prospects may hinge on rain (unplaced on good to firm ground on her first two starts).

Looked well above average when winning 7f maiden at the Curragh last October and 1m handicap at Naas in May, both on soft ground; finished last of ten in the Group 3 Craven at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) in between; still open to progress after just four starts; rain would probably aid his cause.

Front-runner who was beaten a neck by Tactical in the Free Handicap at Newmarket (7f, good; gave the winner 1lb) in April before finding a bit more improvement when fourth in the 2,000 Guineas on the same course (1m, good to firm); a repeat of that form would put him firmly in the picture here; hasn't been at his best on two outings on soft/heavy ground.

Useful performer; creditable efforts with no obvious excuses in Group 3 event here (6f, good to firm) and Listed race at Newbury (6f, good to soft) last two starts; has 3l to find with Creative Force from Newbury and was beaten on his two attempts at 7f last year; needs a leap forward.

Thrice-raced filly; impressive winner of only 2yo start and shaped well when third of 17 in Group 3 at Newbury (7f, good; 50-1) in April; possibly failed to stay when sixth of 11 in 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) seven weeks ago; low mileage and retains potential back at 7f.

Well-bred colt who has improved steadily, 2l second of six to Bellosa in Listed event at Newmarket (7f, good) five weeks ago; also shaped well on good to firm and soft last year; represents powerful connections and may be open to a bit more improvement but others have achieved more.

French-trained son of Iffraaj; showed a surge of improvement on his fourth start to win Group 3 Prix Djebel at Deauville (7f, good; 11-1) in April, coming from last to first; penalised for that win and needs to find more, but that's not out of the question; raced only on good and heavy when on turf.

Superbly bred colt, by Invincible Spirit out of the Guineas heroine Ghanaati; scored a commanding win in a conditions race at Newmarket (7f, good) in April but came up short when only 6-1 for 2,000 Guineas there (1m, good to firm) next time, left behind after racing freely; dropping back down in distance could suit him well; winner on heavy ground on his only start last season; high on the list with potential still untapped.

Yet to race on ground firmer than good; front-runner; went very close in the Group 3 Greenham at Newbury (7f, good; turf debut) in April and gained a deserved success in four-runner Listed race at Epsom (7f, good to soft; 11-8) 15 days ago, making all; today's competition is much stronger.

Front-running filly who has made the perfect start to her career, landing a gamble in maiden at Newmarket (good to firm) in April and following up in decisive style in Listed race on the same course (good; beat Fundamental by 2l) the following month, both over 7f; faces sterner opposition but she may not have reached her ceiling yet and deserves serious consideration.

Storm Damage

J: Andrea Atzeni

108
Has an appealing pedigree (dam second in a Guineas) and he looked well above average when making a winning debut in 13-runner novice at Kempton (7f, AW) 17 days ago, surging to the front 1f out and storming clear under hands and heels; takes a steep rise in grade but open to any amount of improvement and needs taking seriously.

RACING POST TIP

circle_v2
silk
Creative Force
Seven of the last nine Jersey Stakes winners had contested a Guineas of some description and Mutasaabeq, who raced freely at Newmarket when well fancied, and Naval Crown, who finished three places ahead of him at 50-1, are likely contenders in an open renewal. But the vote goes to the highly progressive CREATIVE FORCE, who seems versatile in terms of the ground and could still have some untapped potential over this longer distance. Khartoum, Tactical and Vadream are others to consider, while the exciting, once-raced Storm Damage could be anything and needs taking very seriously too.
