The Roger Charlton-trained SFUMATO improved for the fitting of a hood when going close at Salisbury and he looks the one to beat on that form. Darkroom Angel is another key player on the figures, while several others - notably Sword Exceed and Magicinthemaking - may leave their debut efforts behind. The newcomer The Night Before needs a check in the betting.[Steve Boow]

Stepped up on his two ordinary Newbury efforts when neck second behind potentially useful colt at Salisbury (6f, good to firm), evidently benefiting from the fitting of a hood; sets the standard on that form and may improve further in the retained headgear.

Cheveley Park entry looks optimistic judged on her Newbury debut effort (finished ninth of 15) but she's evidently held in some regard and looks open to improvement with the outing under her belt; title-chasing Jim Crowley again on board; one to note.

Never figured over 5f at Sandown on debut but benefited from step up to 6f when third in maiden auction at Salisbury (good); that's among the best form on offer and she may progress again kept to this trip.

Finished last of five in 5f novice event here (RPR 62) on debut in May, weakening after setting the pace, but this Godolphin colt is open to improvement with the experience under his belt; market support should be noted on return to action.

Stable has low strike-rate with 2yos but this filly represents powerful owners and attracted support on Nottingham debut; she showed just modest form (finished 8l fifth) but it's hard to rule out improvement.

Not beaten far at Newmarket (6f) on debut, albeit in an ordinary maiden for the track; faded late over 7f next time and may appreciate this drop back in trip for the time being.

Didn't fare too badly on debut (sixth of 12) and built on that effort when front-running fourth at Windsor upped to 6f; more is needed but that further improvement looks possible.

After veering left leaving the stalls she hinted at ability in 5f maiden here on debut, keeping on for fifth of seven, but needs to improve a good deal on the bare form.
