It would be surprising if there weren't much more to come from Mister Ambassador with his debut effort behind him and his well-bred stablemate Ben Vrackie also enters calculations. Orange Suit could prove vulnerable under a penalty and the pair to focus on may be Armed and MONOXIDE. The latter was keeping on well at Sandown last month and remains capable of better.[Paul Smith]

Expensive yearling who attracted a bit of support in the Wood Ditton on his debut in April; that not the run to judge him on (green and raced in the unfavoured far-side group) and interesting to see if his backers return.

16-1, showed a bit of ability when ninth of 19 in the Wood Ditton at Newmarket (1m, good) on debut; showed the benefit of that experience when second of 12, beaten a length, at Sandown last month when seeing out his race well; open to plenty of progress still and major contender.

Both runs have come over 1m, shaping nicely on debut at Windsor before another close-up effort at Leicester; ready for this extra yardage and more appealing than many.

Narrow winner of 6f maiden here on his debut in September; raced freely when fourth of seven, beaten 10l, in Newmarket novice on reappearance; still showed fair form there but could prove vulnerable under his penalty.

450,000gns yearling; by Frankel out of a Group 1 winner who has already produced the high-class Berkshire; one of two runners for John Gosden and jockey bookings suggest he's the second string.

Ran well over 1m here on debut and similar form when third upped to this trip at Doncaster 13 days ago; should continue to progress but yard also responsible for Orange Suit.

180,000gns yearling; closely related to Group 3 winner Perfect Tribute (RPR 108), Taqdeeq (88) and Mach One (80) and half-brother to 1m2f winner Perfect Delight; interesting on paper but fair standard to aim at.

66-1 for debut at Sandown but showed some promise and was sent off 2-1 favourite for Chepstow novice 17 days ago; found one too strong on that occasion and will need a bit more if he's to break his duck here.
