Tommy Taylor should be winning soon but his debut second over 7f at Haydock was on heavy ground and it won't be as much of a stamina test today, which his pedigree suggests he might need. Preference is for USED TO BE, who very much shaped when second over 6f at Doncaster last month as if this extra furlong would suit. Mutahaady shouldn't be far away, while there are a couple of interesting newcomers in Honourable and Star Archer, with the latter particularly feared for Hugo Palmer.[Ben Hutton]

First foal; dam didn't show much but is a half-sister to 1m Group 1 winner Mutual Trust, out of a 1m2f Listed winner; trainer having good year with his 2yos and saddled winning newcomer at Newbury last Friday (sent off at 16-1); very much respected on debut.

Having shown signs of inexperience he kept on well for a close second at 9-2 on debut at Haydock (7f, heavy) three weeks ago; should be winning soon but there's stamina in his pedigree and there's just a worry, on today's forecast fast ground, that this may not be enough of a test.

Left debut (here) behind when staying on strongly for second at Doncaster (6f, good) latest; good chance today's extra furlong will prompt further improvement and he's an appealing candidate.

Midfield on debut over 5f in May and improved when a near-3l third at Brighton (7f, good) latest; this well-bred sort is open to further progress for this top yard and he's respected.

First foal; dam 1m4f winner (RPR 82) and a half-sister to 1m Group 1 winner Virtual and 6f 2yo Group 2 winner Iceman; in good hands and could have big say on debut, especially if strong in the betting.

First foal; dam 1m4f-1m6f winner (RPR 92) and half-sister to St Leger winner Bollin Eric and 6f Group 3 winner Bollin Joanne; trainer rarely has first-time-out 2yo winners and this one likely to need further.

In good hands and dam had a peak RPR of 95 (7f-1m4f winner); has to show quite a lot more than on his first two starts though (7f/6f).

Pedigree suggests this step up in trip will suit but plenty of improvement needed having been soundly beaten on his first two starts (both 6f).
