Promising third to Barging Thru on Chelmsford debut and showed bright speed when turning the tables on that same rival, albeit in receipt of weight, at Redcar (5f, good) 17 days ago; will need to leave that bare form well behind to get heavily involved here.

Better with each start, making all with a bit to spare at Naas (5f, soft) 32 days ago; this definitely demands more but he looks capable of better again.

Bred to be useful and looked just that when edging out the reopposing Korker to make winning debut at York's Dante meeting (5f, good to soft) in May, impressing with the way he travelled before knuckling down well; should improve; trainer has had three 2yo winners at this meeting, albeit with the last one in 2007.

No Nay Never colt who had little trouble making a winning debut at Dundalk (5f, AW; tongue tied) in April, showing a good attitude to win going away; runner-up won at Fairyhouse recently; smart prospect for yard which has won this twice since 2015.

Well-held third on fast-ground Windsor debut but much improved on a soft surface since, winning easily at Catterick before second to Ebro River (Navello in third) in National Stakes at Sandown; needs to show he's as effective back under what are likely to be a much quicker conditions.

Big improvement on debut when winning at Ripon (5f) in April; couple of good runner-up efforts over 5f/6f at Pontefract (good to firm/soft) since without obviously looking Royal Ascot material.

Showed useful form when readily completing a spring hat-trick in the Lily Agnes at Chester (5f, good to soft) in May; no obvious excuses when third (Little Earl second) in the National Stakes at Sandown three weeks ago unless the soft ground was against him; his second win came on good to firm.

101
Made an encouraging winning start to his career at Bath (5f, good) last month; the second and third haven't done a great deal for the form since but he was comfortably on top at the finish and is open to improvement for a yard which has been no stranger to juvenile success at this meeting in recent years.

Made it 2-2 when seeing off Saturday's York winner Bosh in a 5f Salisbury novice (good to soft) 19 days ago; debut win came on good to firm; uncomplicated front-running type who probably has more to give.

Cost 150,000gns at Craven breeze-up in April; knew his job and made all on C&D debut (soft) six weeks ago; the second and third in that race have suffered short-priced reversals since but he did it nicely enough and should have more to offer.

Blinkers (retained here) when comfortably justifying favouritism in 5f turf maiden at Belmont (firm) on debut in May, making all; stable has had two wins and a second from seven runners in this race; also sports a tongue-tie; merits plenty of respect.

Close second to Project Dante on debut at York's Dante meeting and duly went one better at Carlisle 16 days later (both 5f on good to soft); open to improvement but a fair chunk will be required to come out on top here.

Sire won this race in these silks in 2016; half-brother to a 5f 2yo Listed winner; sent off at only 5-1 for his debut in a useful Beverley conditions event (5f, soft) 19 days ago but he was very green, slowly away then hanging his chance away after making brief headway; connections clearly haven't lost the faith but he's impossible to make a case for.

Made £210,000 at the breeze-ups and showed why on his third start with a cosy defeat of Harmony Rose (14th at 80-1 in the Queen Mary on Wednesday) at Tipperary (5f, yielding) 16 days ago; could be more to come.

May not have beaten much at Hamilton (5f, good to firm) last week but this £110,000 breeze-up purchase impressed with way he quickened from off the pace to win easily; no surprise were he up to making his presence felt.

Made a winning start over 4.5f on the dirt at Keeneland in April from a stablemate who has been successful twice at Belmont since; blinkers and tongue-tie now on; one of two likely major contenders for his yard.

RACING POST TIP

circle_v2
silk
Cadamosto
In what looks an open renewal of this Group 2, the suggestion is CADAMOSTO, who came away nicely on his Dundalk debut in April and can provide Aidan O'Brien with a third win in this since 2015. Wesley Ward is another who has twice tasted success in this in recent years so his pair Lucci (second on the list) and Nakatomi, who both won on debut in the USA, merit plenty of respect. This a big jump in class for Perfect Power but he was impressive at Hamilton last week and is one who could go well at likely bigger odds.
