There is a slight doubt about COTE D'AZUR back on turf, but he did run well at Yarmouth two starts ago despite racing awkwardly, and if this progressive type is in the same form as when winning at Chelmsford on Tuesday he'll take a bit of beating under a penalty. Fellow Newmarket raider Shufoog, representing last year's winning trainer William Haggas, is open to improvement on just her fourth start and is feared most, ahead of Al Nasser Alwashik and Catastrophe.[Ben Hutton]

Awkward under pressure when second at Yarmouth (1m1f, good to firm) last month and slight concern AW may suit better, but that form has worked out well and this progressive sort has since won readily at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) on Tuesday; strong claims under 6lb penalty if in same form today.

Built on promise shown in maidens when a staying-on, close third off this mark on handicap debut at Thirsk (1m, good) last week; today's extra yardage likely to suit and very much respected; unraced on fast ground.

Soundly beaten when last of four at Chester (10.3f, good to soft) latest but the ground provides an excuse and before that he won at Haydock (10.4f, good); drop back in trip not certain to suit but still respected now back on a sound surface (has run creditably on good to firm).

Didn't threaten on his five starts in Ireland for Brian McMahon, but there was a hint of promise when keeping on for third at Leopardstown (1m, good to firm) two starts ago and his new trainer does extremely well with recruits from other yards; market can be informative on stable debut.

In excellent hands and looked to be going the right way in his first two handicaps (AW), but a lesser effort followed in May and he was well beaten on last month's turf debut; something to prove, especially on grass.

Finished very strongly when dead-heating for close third at Beverley (8.4f, good to soft) 20 days ago, and has since been bought out of Ralph Beckett's yard for 18,000gns; today's extra yardage a plus and every chance he'll again be thereabouts; has run well on good, unraced on faster.

Having taken a keen hold he was well beaten on recent reappearance at Carlisle (1m, good to soft) and has to prove he's trained on; however, that may have got the freshness out of him and he's of interest for his in-form yard off the same mark as when beaten a head on his sole nursery start at Pontefract (1m, good to soft) last October; fair effort only run on fast ground.
