Roger Fell has seemingly found the ideal trip for the nine-race maiden Ad Libitum, and he's massively respected after a good run at Ripon last week, but the chief threat lurks from the upped-in-trip handicap debutant GARDEN OASIS. Admittedly he's been a slow burner in novice events, but he's bred to appreciate this trip and shaped like a stayer at Wolverhampton (8.6f) last month when finishing a close-up fourth to Adjutant (second-placed Epaulement a subsequent winner).[Mark Rowntree]

Excelebration colt who cost 100,000gns as a yearling and whose dam is an unraced half-sister to the 1m2f Group 3 winner Poet; needs to improve upon his novice form (6f-8.6f), but did shape as if he'd stay further than the 8.6f trip of his seasonal return at Wolverhampton (fourth) last month.

Nine-race maiden who ran an RPR career best at Ripon last week (1m2f, good), only caught close home and beaten a neck; turned out quickly seeking to capitalise on same mark (due to go up 3lb) with his trainer appearing to have identified his strongest trip; respected.

Won on first attempt at 1m2f at Redcar in May (good to firm), but the runner-up turned that form around decisively next time at Hamilton (1m1f); blinkers applied as he seeks to regroup, but does look to be the pick of the Mark Johnston-trained pair.

Has raced handily on each of his last three starts and seemingly didn't see out the trip (1m2f) at Ripon last month; possibly stronger with that run under his belt and now fitted with cheekpieces, but needs to show much more in order to figure prominently.

Both wins have come at Brighton (1m, good to soft) and yet to experience racing on fast ground in eight starts; more needed over a new trip on the strength of his 2018 efforts, but does drop marginally in grade.

Consistent form as a juvenile after winning on debut at Ayr in June 2017 (6f, good); evidently stays 1m and by a Derby winner so should get further, but never involved on his first attempt at this trip at Doncaster in April (soft).

Has undertaken the bulk of his racing over sprint trips on the AW (5f-6f), but has also won on turf at Sandown in June 2017 (5f, good); can be difficult to settle over those much shorter distances so comes with risks attached now tackling 1m2f.

Edging down the weights, but that's because she's not kept the same kind of form that she displayed when regularly placed last backend (7f-8.6f); hopes of even threatening to break the maiden tag rest squarely on the new trip/first-time visor combination.
