J: Cieren Fallon
T: William Haggas
3
9-5

J: Harry Bentley
T: Saeed bin Suroor
3
9-3
Made successful debut at Sandown (7f) last summer and struck again in Dubai (9.5f) at the start of the year. Has been gelded after 2 heavy defeats subsequently and needs to improve now handicapping.

J: Frankie Dettori
T: John Gosden
3
9-3
Made a winning debut in 1m novice event at Chelmsford in December and enhanced his reputation in defeat in the Classic Trial at Kempton (10f) on return, travelling well for a long way. More to come.

J: Oisin Murphy
T: Alan King
3

J: James Doyle
T: Charlie Appleby
3
8-12

J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
3
8-12
Progressing well, following up his November Newmarket success in handicap over this trip back there on his return on 1000 Guineas day, bursting to the front over 2f out. Big shout under penalty.

J: Hollie Doyle
T: Archie Watson

Did well last summer, winning 3 times at up to 8.3f. Well held upped to 10.2f final start though, and faces no easy task on return.

10
Jocket Silks 10. CEPHEUS
J: Jim Crowley
T: Brian Meehan

8-7
25/1 winner of a 7f maiden at Newmarket last summer. Well held in the 2000 Guineas there on return but remains capable of better up in trip with sights lowered now.

J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Richard Fahey
3
8-5
Successful at Musselburgh (7f) in September and continued steady improvement when chasing home Acquitted on return at Newcastle having been gelded. May do better again over this trip.

J: William Carson
T: David Elsworth

J: David Probert
T: David Elsworth
3
8-4
Improved again when off the mark at the third attempt in 7f Newmarket novice in October but hasn't beaten another rival in 2 runs since in Group 3s 7 months apart. Step forward needed.

Won 1m Chelmsford maiden in February and ran well from the front upped to this trip for handicap debut at Haydock 11 days ago, edged out near line. Wouldn't dismiss lightly off the same mark.

J: Martin Dwyer
T: Eve Johnson Houghton
3
8-2
Won 1m Newcastle maiden in November and took a strong hold before fading upped to 10f on handicap debut/return at Yarmouth. Looks vulnerable in this.

J: Hayley Turner
T: Andrew Balding
3
8-2
Won 2 of his 3 starts at 2 yrs and improved further when 3 lengths third to Global Storm on his return at Newmarket, seeing this trip out well. More needed to get nearer that one and others.

Analyst's Verdict

Stacks of promising 3-y-os, with HYPOTHETICAL getting the vote. He caught the eye on his return in the Kempton Classic Trial, tanking through the race for the most part and not given a hard time once his chance had gone. He's likely better than a handicapper and can come out on top. Acquitted, Global Storm and Highland Chief are just 3 of the other likely contenders.
