Comment: Debut winner at Doncaster and kept his form really well, useful placed efforts at Newbury and Goodwood (2l third in Molecomb Stakes) last two runs; sets standard on those runs but best form at 5f.
Comment: 5/1, striking impression when making all in 6f Ascot maiden on debut 27 days ago, just holding on having travelled very strongly. Sure to improve a lot and very interesting with Ryan Moore on now.
Comment: 6/1 and blinkered/tongue tied, much improved when winning 12-runner maiden at Tipperary (5f, good to soft) 11 days ago. Open to further progress over 6f and shortlisted with Frankie Dettori booked.
Comment: Narrow winner of 6f maiden at Doncaster in July. Failed to land odds but good second of 3 in 7f nursery at Newcastle 14 days ago, no extra late on. Will benefit from drop back to 6f and respected.
Comment: Fairly useful colt. Won 7f nursery at Lingfield in July. 7/1, good fourth in nursery at Newmarket (7f, good to firm) 12 days ago. Visor on now but needs to find lot more if he's to figure here.
Several chances in this valuable juvenile event but at the forecast odds MUMS TIPPLE is awarded the vote. Richard Hannon's colt made a striking impression when scoring at Ascot on his debut and can show himself capable of considerably better here. The main form contenders are not proven at 6f but of those Raahy looks sure to adapt well while Fleeting Prince and Piece of Paradise can go close too.

Specific Place Hint: Of those forecasted with a better chance, Latin Five and Piece Of Paradise could be the most susceptible in a race in which competition for the lead looks plentiful: A proliferation of possible pace-forcers could set things up for those coming from further back: Show Me Show Me and Sword Beach are two who may benefit.
Individual Price Hint: Sword Beach traded at 10% or less of BSP, 25% or less of BSP and 50% or less of BSP on 3 of its last 4 starts: Sermon traded at 25% or less of BSP and 50% or less of BSP twice on 3 of its last 4 starts.
