Brigand was third in an ordinary race at Pontefract and although well drawn here, he'll need to be ridden handier than on his debut to make the most of it. Alba Del Sole and Maypole would have been tempting but for wide draws and the suggestion is ARDEN PEARL, who did well to win at Windsor and it was always going to be tough at Newmarket.[Alistair Jones]

24,000euros yearling; not strong form when third at Pontefract (6f, soft) but did finish well after being held up and is entitled to come on for that; may need a more positive ride here from the inside stall.

No budding star but has got closer with each run and saw out the 6f well enough when a close third at Kempton; bang there with something similar, but not dropped lucky with the draw.

Outclassed in a valuable Newmarket sales race last time but did well to win a 6f Windsor maiden the time before given how wide she went; has to give weight away on AW debut but should be involved.

Half-brother to seven winners; travelled nicely before showing his inexperience when fourth of seven on soft ground at Goodwood (6f) but no improvement on that upped to 7f at Newmarket, albeit in what looked a strong race; remains to be seen whether he has the pace for 6f round here and draw not helped.

Big price when well held on Newbury debut, where he was green and under pressure quite early; should have learned plenty and different conditions here.

Nowhere over 1m on debut (AW) but was better dropped to 7f at Salisbury and given how keenly he raced then coming back to 6f could benefit; others have achieved plenty more though.

Won novice auction event over C&D, courtesy of a late bid from off the pace; didn't appear to get home over 7f at Newmarket but that a tough assignment anyway on nursery debut.
