There should be more to come from the Frankel colt BEN VRACKIE, who hammered a subsequent scorer at Lingfield before running creditably behind St Leger candidate Maid Up at Goodwood. He has the look of a future Group winner and could well defy a mark of 104 on his handicap debut. Second choice is fellow 3yo Austrian School, who has a consistent profile and is ahead of the assessor. There are several possible dangers among the 4yos, notably Walton Street and Just In Time. Last year's winner Time To Study is not currently in top form but he could bounce back today.[Steve Boow]

Frankel colt who has quickly developed into a useful sort, wide-margin winner at Lingfield (1m4f, AW) on third outing and runner-up to St Leger hope Maid Up in Group 3 at Goodwood (1m6f, good) latest; holds Group 2 entry; should progress further and commands respect on handicap debut.

Scored twice (1m4f/1m6f) in May and has proved largely consistent since, most recently a clear second at Goodwood (2m, good) ten days ago when he perhaps kicked for home sooner than ideal; due to go up 2lb in future and looks a solid contender.

Useful form upped to 2m (from 1m5f) the last twice, winning at Ascot then third in warm race at York; it was fast ground both times but he has also won on very soft going in France (for this stable); still unexposed as a stayer and enters the reckoning.

Decisive winner of competitive affair at York's Ebor festival (good to firm) three weeks ago, looking well suited by the step up to 1m4f; worth a crack at this longer trip and, having impressed last time, needs considering despite 11lb rise.

Completed a 1m4f hat-trick as a 3yo and has shown further improvement upped to staying trips this season, most recently scoring in emphatic style at Goodwood (on good ground; has won on soft); up 10lb for that win; now 2-2 over 1m6f and may not have stopped progressing yet.

Has looked largely progressive in his 1m4f races, winning three times; ran poorly when favourite at Pontefract latest but it possibly came too soon after his Newmarket success just five days earlier; this new trip is worth exploring and he remains of interest.

Back in better form the last twice, finishing fifth in good handicap at Newbury then seventh in the Ebor at York; had won the Ebor in 2017 and would be dangerous if returning to that career-best form.

Poached a big lead and never looked like being caught when scoring by 12l at Haydock (2m, good to firm) two starts back; unable to defy a penalty at Newbury (1m5f) the following week and now has an even higher mark to contend with.

Progressive as a 3yo and ran well in Listed company on reappearance; three subsequent efforts are less compelling, midfield in Glorious Goodwood handicap (1m6f) latest; withdrawn (not enter stalls) at Newbury later in August.

Defied this mark in last year's Northumberland Plate at Newcastle (AW); well held in the latest renewal of that contest, however, and can be opposed back on grass; 0-11 on turf.
