1
Jocket Silks 1. FIRST CONTACT (IRE)
J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
5
9-10
1m Listed winner in France as a 3-y-o and ended his 2019 campaign with a 2-length second in a Redcar listed (7f, soft). Will require a career best to defy top weight on his reappearance.

2
Jocket Silks 2. HABUB (USA)
J: Cieren Fallon
T: Owen Burrows
5
9-10
Smart AW performer but well below that level on his sole previous outing on turf. Blinkered first time on first start since March. Owner has a few more obvious contenders than this one.

3
Jocket Silks 3. BLOWN BY WIND
J: Joe Fanning
T: Mark Johnston
4
9-9
Another from his yard who has returned in top form, registering a smart effort to land 7f Newmarket handicap 10 days ago. Raised 4 lb so will need to up his game again.

4
Jocket Silks 4. GIFTED MASTER (IRE)
J: Gabriele Malune
T: Hugo Palmer
7
9-9
2018 Steward's Cup winner. Lingfield AW second over 7f last autumn shows he's still capable of smart form but this stiffer test at the trip may stretch him on reappearance.

5
Jocket Silks 5. DAARIK (IRE)
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John Gosden
4
9-9
Well held on turf debut in spring 2018 but most progressive on AW since, making light of absence on Newcastle's Tapeta 10 days ago. Whether he's as effective on turf a bigger issue than 7 lb rise.

6
Jocket Silks 6. SILENT ATTACK
J: Tom Marquand
T: Tony Carroll
7
9-7
Done well on AW since joining this yard last autumn, winning then second in 1m Lingfield handicaps at the beginning of the year. Just as good on the turf for his previous connections.

7
Jocket Silks 7. FLAMING SPEAR (IRE)
J: Joey Haynes
T: Dean Ivory
8
9-5
Landed a valuable pot over this trip at Goodwood in 2018 but out of sorts in 4 outings last year so returns from 6 months off with something to prove.

8
Jocket Silks 8. MUTAMAASIK
J: Dane O'Neill
T: Roger Varian
4
9-5
Second on debut and unbeaten in 4 starts since, concluding with 7f handicap success at Doncaster's St Leger meeting. Jim Crowley looks elsewhere but there's surely more to come from this 4-y-o.

9
Jocket Silks 9. GLEN SHIEL
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Archie Watson
6
9-5
Has registered some very useful efforts on AW for this yard since dropping in trip, winning over 7f at Newcastle in January and fine second there (6f) on return from a break 14 days ago.

10
Jocket Silks 10. HEY JONESY (IRE)
J: Tom Eaves
T: Kevin Ryan
5
9-4
Sixteen runs since his only win in 2017. Well beaten in big-field handicaps on final 3 outings last year, including C&D, so not hard to look elsewhere despite his yard's decent record in this contest.

11
Jocket Silks 11. GREENSIDE
J: Marco Ghiani
T: Henry Candy
9
9-4
Ran as well as he's ever done when back from a break to finish second in Challenge Cup over C&D last autumn. Up 5 lb but has a good record fresh so no surprise if he has a part to play.

12
Jocket Silks 12. KAESO
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Nigel Tinkler
6
9-4
Fine standard-bearer for yard in good turf handicaps in first half of 2019, including close second in International over C&D. Behind Daarik on AW return but that could have put him spot on for this.

13
Jocket Silks 13. ALEXANDER JAMES (IRE)
J: Luke Morris
T: Gay Kelleway
4
9-3
Soft-ground 9f listed winner in France after leaving Iain Jardine. Drops in trip on first outing for new trainer Gay Kelleway. Also equipped with a first-time tongue tie.

14
Jocket Silks 14. STRAIGHT RIGHT (FR)
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Andrew Balding
6
9-3
Back to winning ways Kempton handicap in January. Looked unlucky at Newcastle next time and latest Wolverhampton run worth forgiving after blowing the start. Yet to win on turf but yard going well.

15
Jocket Silks 15. MOTAKHAYYEL
J: Jim Crowley
T: Richard Hannon
4
9-3
Useful effort to win over 1m Newmarket last July. Possibly unsuited by softer ground when well held over 1m here final start. Remains unexposed. Crowley seemingly prefers him to owner's other runners.

16
Jocket Silks 16. LETHAL LUNCH
J: Adam Kirby
T: Clive Cox
5
9-3
Pair of 7f AW handicap wins late last summer and ended 2019 with a good second over 6f at Kempton. Handicap mark has edged up and needs to show he's as effective back on turf now. Tongue tie added.

17
Jocket Silks 17. DOCUMENTING
J: Rossa Ryan
T: Kevin Frost
7
9-2
Smart on AW (second in Wolverhampton listed in March) but down the field in International over C&D on sole turf start last year and hard to be sure what level he's capable of on the grass.

18
Jocket Silks 18. SHELIR (IRE)
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: David O'Meara
4
9-2
Lost way after 7f listed win in Ireland for Dermot Weld. Joined yard with good record with new recruits and he shaped as if needing run on 1m Newmarket return 9 days ago. Could fare better now.

19
Jocket Silks 19. JACK'S POINT
J: Martin Dwyer
T: William Muir
4
9-1
Landed just the second success of his career when seeing off 11 rivals at Newmarket 12 days ago, although he was seen to maximum effect up against the favoured rail. Others preferred.

20
Jocket Silks 20. KEYSER SOZE (IRE)
J: Ryan Moore
T: Richard Spencer
6
9-1
Creditable second in 7f Lingfield handicap in March. Has yet to make an impact in 4 previous attempts in big-field handicaps here but the booking of Ryan Moore takes the eye. Can start slowly.

21
Jocket Silks 21. WAR GLORY (IRE)
J: Sean Levey
T: Richard Hannon
7
9-1
Very good AW record and thrived last autumn, readily defying BHA mark of 102 in Lingfield handicap. Wasn't himself in listed company when last seen and lower turf mark is justified.

22
Jocket Silks 22. CLIFFS OF CAPRI
J: Dougie Costello
T: Jamie Osborne
6
9-1
Bounced back to form and caused a shock (in blinkers) when successful at Meydan (1m) in February and continued the good work back in Britain when second to Jack's Point at Newmarket 12 days ago.

23
Jocket Silks 23. FIRMAMENT
J: James Doyle
T: David O'Meara
8
9-1
Back to winning ways in York handicap under James Doyle a year ago. Typically plenty of creditable efforts in defeat since (including at Newcastle 2 weeks ago) and has Doyle back on board.

24
Jocket Silks 24. EBURY
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Martyn Meade
4
9-1
Low-mileage colt who landed 1m classified event here last September. Shaped well when second at Newmarket on final start but shade disappointing when only sixth on reappearance there 9 days ago.

Analyst's Verdict

Hamdan Al Maktoum holds a strong hand in this curtain raiser which returns to the Royal meeting after a six-year absence. MUTAMAASIK was most progressive when winning all 4 starts after his debut last year and gets the nod despite Jim Crowley seemingly preferring Motakhayyel. Daarik is another in blue and white silks who could have big say, while Shelir is one who could go well at longer odds.
