is another fine advert for his trainer's skill with sprinters, his career on a similar upward trajectory to his half-brother Dakota Gold for the same connections, a different type to that horse in how he races, but not far off him now in terms of ability as he added the Goodwood version to the Scottish Stewards' Cup at Hamilton a fortnight earlier; held up, effort from halfway, headway over 1f out, stayed on to lead final 50 yds; he's versatile with regards ground and will remain of interest for other races like this.

hadn't been seen since the Guineas meeting, missing the Wokingham because of the softish ground, this run on even more testing ground than he'd have faced there suggesting a missed opportunity as he ran right up to best, deserving extra credit too given he raced in the smaller group of 7 on the far side; mid-field, progress over 2f out, led 1f out, edged left inside final 1f, headed final 50 yds; he's a lightly-raced 4-y-o and very much one to be interested in for other good handicaps.

was turned out again quickly having been placed over 5f here earlier in the week and shaped better than the bare result, either the combination of the ground/trip or making his move prematurely just finding him out after making a stylish move into contention; mid-field, smooth progress around halfway, led briefly over 1f out, weakened final 100 yds; he'll be more interesting than most in other similar events.

A more typical Stewards' Cup, bottom-weight Justanotherbottle with a BHA rating of 94 after 87 was good enough to get a run last year, the field finishing quite well bunched, the first 8 covered by just over 3 lengths, 3 of whom had made the first 5 in the Wokingham and every reason to think this will work out in other similar events later in the year; unlike in the consolation, the field split, stalls 1-7 going far side, the rest coming towards the stand side with the exception of Bielsa who came alone down the centre, the larger group at a small advantage, meaning the effort of Great Ambassador should be marked up.

COMMANCHE FALLS is another fine advert for his trainer's skill with sprinters, his career on a similar upward trajectory to his half-brother Dakota Gold for the same connections, a different type to that horse in how he races, but not far off him now in terms of ability as he added the Goodwood version to the Scottish Stewards' Cup at Hamilton a fortnight earlier; held up, effort from halfway, headway over 1f out, stayed on to lead final 50 yds; he's versatile with regards ground and will remain of interest for other races like this.

JUSTANOTHERBOTTLE (IRE) has twice run well in this in his youth, but he's not the force of old and failed to build on his last effort; close up, pushed along soon after halfway, weakened over 1f out.

MERAAS was easy to back with the ground perceived to have gone against him and he ran poorly; dived left leaving stalls, led group, headed halfway, weakened 2f out.

EJTILAAB (IRE) without his usual hood, was backed into favouritism on his first start since leaving Ian Williams but ran so poorly that he seemed to be amiss (returned post-race normal according to the vet); bumped start, soon behind, never travelling well, pulled up around halfway.
