There are some interesting newcomers in the field here, so market reference is strongly advised. With experience on his side, improved Goodwood second ASPIRE TOWER may be the one, ahead of Lingfield debut winner Knightshayes. [Mel Cullinan]

Appealing enough pedigree even if his dam's side does suggest he'll be better at further next year; with a good yard and well worth a market check.

Improved on debut form when staying on well for clear second at Goodwood (1m, good to soft); the winner there was showing improvement despite it being his eighth start and this colt sets a reasonable standard here.

2,000gns half-sister to 7f AW winner Rememberance Day (RPR 76); 33-1, she travelled well throughout and won most decisively on debut at Lingfield (7.5f, good to firm) last month; third won next time and the form is reasonable; leading contender on that form.

Closely related to winners Martlet (1m2f-1m4f including Listed; RPR 110) and Keswick (1m2f AW; 76), half-brother to 1m-8.4f winner Palmerston (86); dam 10.8f winner (90), out of Irish Oaks winner; hails from a good yard and the betting will be very informative.

Stable's newcomers tend to need the run; however, this well-bred Derby entry is introduced in an ordinary race and is very much worth a market check.
