1
Jocket Silks 1. SIR BUSKER (IRE)
J: Oisin Murphy
T: William Knight
4
9-10
Dual winner in 2019 who proved at least as good as ever to win 11-runner contest at Newcastle (1m) on return 15 days ago. Suited by how things developed on the day, but should remain competitive.

2
Jocket Silks 2. HOME BEFORE DUSK
J: Ben Sanderson
T: Keith Dalgleish
5
9-10
Flourished during the winter, resuming winning ways in good style in 1m handicap at Kempton in February. Not seen to best effect back there last time, and his mark still looks a fair one.

3
Jocket Silks 3. UNIVERSAL GLEAM
J: David Probert
T: Keith Dalgleish
5
9-9
Consistent sort who resumed winning ways in 8-runner handicap at Wolverhampton (9.5f) in March, seeing it out best down centre of track. Nudged up 3 lb in a stronger race back on turf now, though.

4
Jocket Silks 4. BRIAN EPSTEIN (IRE)
J: Pat Dobbs
T: Richard Hannon
4
9-9
Was on an upward curve early last year and returned with an excellent second at Haydock (1m, good) last week. Has to be respected off the same mark here. Engaged 1.15 Ascot Tuesday.

5
Jocket Silks 5. PLANTADREAM
J: Kieran O'Neill
T: John Best
5
9-9
Made it 2 wins from 4 starts in most emphatic style on handicap debut at Lingfield (1m, AW) 11 days ago. Could still have a bit more to come, but a 14 lb hike in the weights makes life much tougher.

6
Jocket Silks 6. SO BELOVED
J: David Nolan
T: David O'Meara
10
9-9
Veteran who most likely needed the run at Newcastle on his return 15 days ago, but isn't one to be making excuses for with his losing run stretching back 4 years. Engaged 1.15 Ascot Tuesday.

7
Jocket Silks 7. ZHUI FENG (IRE)
J: Martin Dwyer
T: Amanda Perrett
7
9-8
Hasn't won a handicap for a long time but is down to a workable mark and ran respectably back on turf when fourth at Newmarket (1m, good) last week. Cheekpieces refitted.

8
Jocket Silks 8. DEAN STREET DOLL (IRE)
J: Jason Watson
T: David Menuisier
4
9-7
Limerick maiden winner who finished a creditable fifth in last season's Irish 1000 Guineas. Disappointing thereafter, but shaped as if better for the run after 8 months off on recent yard/AW debut.

9
Jocket Silks 9. BRAINS (IRE)
J: Nicola Currie
T: Jamie Osborne
4
9-7
Rose rapidly through the ranks on the all-weather during the winter, completing the hat-trick at Southwell in February. However, wasn't in anything like the same form on Haydock turf debut last week.

10
Jocket Silks 10. RED BOND (IRE)
J: Callum Rodriguez
T: Keith Dalgleish
4
9-6
Showed big improvement when resuming winning ways by a wide margin in 1m handicap at Newcastle in January. Confirmed that form when third back there 11 days ago and may not be done improving yet.

11
Jocket Silks 11. SMILE A MILE (IRE)
J: Joe Fanning
T: Mark Johnston
4
9-6
Made it 4 good seconds from as many outings in 2020 in a first-time visor at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in March, but needs a bit more if he's to defy revised mark.

12
Jocket Silks 12. HORTZADAR
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: David O'Meara
5
9-6
Won first 2 starts for this yard and added to his tally at Ripon in August. Underperformed at Newmarket final start, though had been on the go since the spring, so was probably ready for a break.

13
Jocket Silks 13. NICKLAUS
J: Tom Marquand
T: William Haggas
5
9-6
In good form when last seen but the handicapper looked to have his measure, so would need everything to drop perfectly for him to make a winning return.

14
Jocket Silks 14. SALAYEL
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Roger Varian
4
9-6
Fairly useful winner in UAE and in the frame all 4 starts in turf handicaps for new yard last year, second of 4 over this this trip at Newmarket final outing. Hood back on, and may yet do better.

15
Jocket Silks 15. OUZO
J: Ryan Moore
T: Richard Hannon
4
9-5
Made up into a useful handicapper at 3 yrs, and took his form to a new level after 7 months off when second of 10 in 1m event at Newmarket on return, clear of the rest. One to be interested in.

16
Jocket Silks 16. ALMUFTI
J: James Doyle
T: Hugo Palmer
4
9-5
Back on the up when ready winner of 7-runner handicap at Lingfield (1m, AW) in February. Not disgraced in follow-up bid from 4 lb higher since and should prove just as effective back on turf.

17
Jocket Silks 17. MAYDANNY (IRE)
J: Jim Crowley
T: Mark Johnston
4
9-4
Half-brother to stable star Elarqam. Promise both starts at 3 and left those efforts behind when coming right away in good style on handicap debut at Yarmouth (1m) a fortnight ago. More to come.

18
Jocket Silks 18. ALTERNATIVE FACT
J: Frankie Dettori
T: Ed Dunlop
5
9-4
Capitalised on a falling mark at Newmarket final start of 2019. Not seen to best effect at Haydock on reappearance last week, and likely to be much closer to form this time. Back down in trip.

19
Jocket Silks 19. SUCELLUS
J: Ben Curtis
T: Roger Fell
4
9-4
Picked up cheaply after winning on final start for John Gosden (15,000 gns), and shaped as if needing the run after 9 months off at Newcastle 15 days ago. Back down in trip, and still low mileage.

20
Jocket Silks 20. AMBASSADORIAL (USA)
J: John Egan
T: Jane Chapple-Hyam
6
9-4
Smart performer on the all-weather who ran his best race on turf when second of 12 in 1m handicap at Newmarket 11 days ago, though was better placed than most, so wouldn't be sure to back that up.

21
Jocket Silks 21. ASDAA (IRE)
J: Non Runner
T: Mark Johnston
4
9-3
NON RUNNER.

22
Jocket Silks 22. PRESIDENTIAL (IRE)
J: Shane Kelly
T: Roger Fell
6
9-3
Drew a blank in 2019 but posted some good efforts and looked about as good as ever when winning 7f handicap at Doncaster 4 days ago. Turned out quickly under a penalty and should remain competitive.

23
Jocket Silks 23. GORING (GER)
J: Georgia Dobie
T: Eve Johnson Houghton
8
9-2
Resumed winning ways with a smooth success over less-exposed rivals at Lingfield in February. Not seen to best effect at Wolverhampton next time but this is a tough ask back on turf. Visor refitted.

24
Jocket Silks 24. MODEL GUEST
J: Non Runner
T: George Margarson
4
9-1
NON RUNNER.

Analyst's Verdict

OUZO took his form to a new level when runner-up at Newmarket on return, and appeals as the type who could do better still over the course of the season, so his claims appear to be bright. Impressive Yarmouth-scorer Maydanny heads up the dangers, along with Salayel and Brian Epstein.
