Why We Dream is readily excused her defeat at Royal Ascot three weeks ago and can make a race of this, but expensive colt ALGAFFAAL was a very creditable second on his debut and ought go one better today.[Chris Wilson]

Out of a half-sister to Kentucky Derby/Preakness winner Funny Cide and cost $450,000 as a yearling; made very promising debut when second of ten at Newcastle (7f, AW) last month and will be a very tough nut to crack if able to build on that performance here.

Well beaten on handicap debut at Royal Ascot three weeks ago but showed some fairly useful form when placed in three novice events (7f-1m) this spring; needs to prove she's effective on ground faster than good but has a significant role to play here.

Seven-race maiden; made pleasing seasonal debut when runner-up in Haydock handicap (1m, soft) in April and should be fine on today's faster ground, but her latest run was disappointing and she has a bit to find with a couple of today's rivals.

First foal; dam showed fairly useful form when placed over 7f/1m2f, half-sister to French Derby winner Blue Canari and a 1m Listed winner; nice pedigree; interesting to see how she fares on debut.

Bought for 5,500gns in February; fourth foal; half-brother to middle-distance Group 3 winner Star Storm and a useful middle-distance winner; dam a modest maiden but half-sister to a 7f 2yo Group 2 winner and out of a Guineas winner; will need to be useful to make a winning debut.

Has a decent pedigree but was too green to do herself justice when fifth of 13 on debut at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) six weeks ago; ought to be capable of better but significant progress needed to win here.
