AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 1 Newmarket 13:50 Listed (Class 1) 8f

207 Crystal Caprice
Superbly-bred Frankel filly who has got up a hat-trick easily this summer over this trip, strong at the finish when scoring at Ascot 3 weeks ago. Looks well up to this level. Obvious claims.
9-0Ryan MooreSir Michael Stoutelocked1.75/12.25/129
6211 Zanbaq
Dual novice winner who ran a screamer when second in the Sandringham at Royal Ascot and then wasn't seen to best effect in Group 3 back there 9 weeks ago. Fresh and suspect she has a bigger effort in her.
9-0Jim CrowleyRoger Varianlocked3.5/13.33/15
4810 Whitebeam
Fast-improving filly who got the hat-trick up in 7f Haydock handicap 7 weeks ago, cosily seeing off a subsequent winner. More to come.
9-0David ProbertHarry & Roger locked4.5/13.5/122
486 Crenelle
C&D maiden winner in April and fine efforts in third in the Sandringham (behind Zanbaq) and listed race at Haydock (behind Random Harvest) the last twice. Cheekpieces go on and could be a player if they put an extra edge on her.
9-0Robert HavlinJohn & Thady locked8.5/16/129
342 Random Harvest
Progressive this year, winning 1m Ascot fillies' handicap in July and going close in listed race at Haydock in August. Not asked to dictate when well held in Sandown Group 3 last time but work to do here against some very promising 3-y-os.
9-4Saffie OsborneEd Walkerlocked20/112/140
489 Thundershower
Has won twice over the extended 1m at Nottingham this term but held behind a number of these upped in grade at Haydock 7 weeks ago.
9-0William BuickJohn & Thady locked28/125/111
998 Mystic Wells
Made all in gritty fashion in 10f Brighton fillies' handicap in April and ran well again from the front in listed Lingfield contest next time. Ridden too aggressively in the Ribblesdale but drops back markedly in trip after 3 months off now.
9-0Daniel MuscuttGeorge Bougheylocked33/122/133
281 Improvised
Three-time winner last year and a number of good runs this term. Unproven over this far though and has her work cut out.
9-4Daniel TudhopeDavid O'Mearalocked50/120/160
195 Arion
Two-year-old novice winner but continues to come up short in listed company.
9-0Tom MarquandHugo Palmerlocked50/140/120
164 Sunset Bay
Won a brace of 7f handicaps in summer 2021. Limitations rather exposed at listed/Group level since and up against it here.
9-4Rob HornbyEd Walkerlocked100/1125/125
There are 10 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 2 Newmarket 14:25 Group 3 (Class 1) 12f

347 Sea Silk Road
Very useful Sea The Stars filly who landed Nottingham maiden and Goodwood listed event in May. Good fourth in Prix de la Nonette at Deauville (10f) 34 days ago. Tongue strap on 1st time. Sets a good form standard.
8-12Tom MarquandWilliam Haggaslocked2/12.5/125
402 Eternal Pearl
Improving Frankel filly who completed her hat-trick in Prix Minerve at Deauville (12f) 40 days ago by 2 lengths from Queen Trezy. Should have more to offer. In the picture.
9-1William BuickCharlie Applebylocked2/11.5/125
516 Royal Scandal
Looked smart prospect when scoring on debut at Newcastle in May and comfortably notched a second win in minor event at Kempton last month. This is tougher but she has more to offer and can't be dismissed.
8-12Daniel MuscuttJames Fanshawelocked6.5/19/138
363 Poptronic
Big improver who completed her hat-trick in 10f Newcastle Group 3 in June. Too free in first-time hood when last of 7 in Yorkshire Oaks at York last time so no forlorn hope with headgear dispensed with now.
9-1Sam JamesK R Burkelocked10/114/140
368 Voodoo Queen
Course winner who wasn't discredited in her hat-trick bid when fifth of 11 to Haskoy in listed race at York (11.8f) 36 days ago. This demands a clear career best, however.
8-12David EganRoger Varianlocked12/19/125
264 Peripatetic
Opened her account for the season in good style in 3-runner handicap at Goodwood (12f) 26 days ago. This requires plenty more, though.
8-12Ryan MooreRoger Varianlocked20/18.5/158
781 Quenelle D'Or
Returned with good fifth in Copper Horse at Royal Ascot but last of 12 in Group 3 at Leopardstown since. Needs to get back on track.
9-5Jamie SpencerHugo Palmerlocked25/166/1164
95 Queen Of The Skies
Landed Chelmsford City novice in June before good eighth of 13 to Shaara in listed race at Yarmouth (10f) 9 days ago. Hood on 1st time and needs another step forward.
8-12Robert HavlinJohn & Thady locked28/133/118
There are 8 runners in this race.

Race 3 Newmarket 15:00 Group 2 (Class 1) 7f

552 Commissioning
Kingman filly who made a very impressive winning start to her career on the July Course here 8 weeks ago. Looks more than capable of making her presence felt at a much higher level.
9-2Robert HavlinJohn & Thady locked2.5/13.5/140
3410 Olivia Maralda
Newbury maiden winner who improved again when excellent ¾-length second of 7 to Meditate in Debutante at the Curragh (7f, good to firm) 5 weeks ago. That's the best piece of form on offer here.
9-2Rossa RyanM D O'Callaghanlocked3/12.5/117
1711 Rage Of Bamby
6f Newbury debut winner in June and looked very useful when easily seen off 11 rivals over 7f at Leicester 11 weeks later. Not to be underestimated.
9-2Charles BishopEve Johnson locked6.5/17/18
153 Dance In The Grass
Won over 7f at Sandown on first 2 starts, latterly a listed event (pulled clear with Prestige winner Fairy Cross). Something can't have been right when disappointing favourite in May Hill. Capable of bouncing back.
9-2Andrea AtzeniCharlie & Mark locked12/19/125
11512 Rich
Cracksman filly who made a winning debut in a big field at Newbury (6f) at the end of May. It's taken a bit of time to get her back to the track but interesting that good 2-y-o stable is prepared to pitch her in at deep end on her return
9-2Pat DobbsRichard Hannonlocked12/116/133
5214 Sydneyarms Chelsea
Useful filly who improved to win Group 3 Prix Six Perfections at Deauville (7f, good) last month by ¾ length from Terrestrial. A bit more will be needed to follow up here.
9-2William BuickCharles Hillslocked12/114/117
226 Eximious
Looked a useful prospect when readily taking a 7f Salisbury maiden on her second start. More to come from her and the stable is flying.
9-2Jack MitchellRoger Varianlocked18/112/133
219 Leitzel
Unbeaten in 2 starts, namely a 7f maiden and 1m novice. Takes a jump in class now but she likely has more to offer.
9-2Jim CrowleyDavid O'Mearalocked20/120/10
205 Electric Eyes
Became yet another winning 2-y-o newcomer for the stable this season when seeing off 9 rivals at Thirsk (7f, soft) 3 weeks ago. Likely to improve but will need to leave that bare form well behind to go close in this company.
9-2Daniel TudhopeK R Burkelocked25/116/136
128 Lakota Sioux
Tail flasher but it hasn't prevented her developing into a very useful juvenile, including a Group 3 win on the July Course (7f, good to firm). Possibly unsuited by heavy ground when last of 11 in Moyglare latest.
9-2Richard KingscoteCharlie & Mark locked25/116/136
151 Cell Sa Beela
Confirmed debut promise when comfortably opening her account at Beverley last month. Improved again when 6 lengths fourth in 1m May Hill at Doncaster since but she'll need a fair bit more to go close at this level. Yard's good form provides some hope, though.
9-2David EganRoger Varianlocked40/150/125
534 Dubai Jemila
Expensive Breeze-Up acquisition who opened her account at the second time of asking in a novice at Ayr 38 days ago. This is a much tougher assignment, but she's open to further improvement.
9-2Ryan MooreKevin Ryanlocked50/150/10
3613 Sweet Harmony
Landed a 6f Yarmouth maiden early last month but came up well short in the Lowther at York a fortnight later. Likely outsider now tackling 7f for the first time.
9-2Hollie DoyleRichard Spencerlocked80/166/118
177 Ipanema Princess
Epsom maiden winner in July. Quite useful form in Group 3 events in France last month but well below par at Goodwood latest. Surely vulnerable at this level of competition.
9-2Tom MarquandAmy Murphylocked100/1200/1100
There are 14 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 4 Newmarket 15:35 Group 2 (Class 1) 8f

264 Tempus
Built on his excellent third in the Royal Hunt Cup in no uncertain terms, winning handicap at Ascot and Group 3s at Salisbury and Deauville, defying a penalty at latter track last month. This the next logical step and big player.
9-6Hollie DoyleArchie Watsonlocked3/11.25/158
345 Potapova
Showed much-improved form when winning Group 3 at Sandown last month though was seen to maximum effect, sweeping down the outside from off the pace. More probably needed taking on the males now.
9-3Ryan MooreSir Michael Stoutelocked3.75/17/187
272 Mutasaabeq
Smart colt who resumed with Thirsk conditions event victory and went close in Group 2s at Sandown and Ascot. Possibly didn't handle the track in Celebration Mile at Goodwood last time and expected to bounce back in first-time headgear.
9-6Jim CrowleyCharles Hillslocked4/12.25/144
347 Oscula
Won 15-runner Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood (7f) in July. Defied a penalty in Group 3 at Deauville following month before creditable third in similar event there following month. Likeable sort who's holding her form remarkably well, but another career best required.
8-13William BuickGeorge Bougheylocked9/110/111
3981 El Drama
Smart performer at 3 but not seen since finishing a below-form sixth in a York Group 3 at the 2021 Ebor meeting. Yard's good form provides hope on belated return but betting perhaps the best guide to expectations.
9-6Andrea AtzeniRoger Varianlocked10/18/120
126 The Wizard Of Eye
Highly tried since landing a Newbury novice (6f) last summer, but has posted some solid efforts, notably when runner-up in the Thoroughbred Stakes at Goodwood penultimate start. Likely to be outclassed here, though.
9-2David EganJ S Moorelocked40/140/10
There are 6 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 5 Newmarket 16:10 Maiden (Class 4) 7f

175 Kolsai
Promising individual. Hooded, nose second of 7 in novice event at Leicester (7f, good, 4/1) on debut 17 days ago despite being slowly away. Represents yard in tremendous form and seems sure to improve.
9-2David EganRoger Varianlocked1.5/10.91/139
010 Regal Honour
Foaled March 31. 625,000 gns yearling, Dubawi colt. Half-brother to several winners, including winner up to 9f Summer Romance and winner up to 1m Rizeena , both smart. Dam 2-y-o 7f winner. Claims leap off the page.
9-2William BuickCharlie Applebylocked2/11.75/113
04 Greatest Time
Foaled February 24. No Nay Never colt. Dam twice-raced half-sister to useful 6f/7f winner Seek N' Destroy.
9-2Ryan MooreRichard Hannonlocked6.5/120/1208
06 Logistical
Foaled February 14. €92,000 foal, Dandy Man colt. Dam, unraced half-sister to smart 9f-11.5f winner Powder Snow, out of close relative of Derby/Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner Lammtarra.
9-2Daniel TudhopeAndrew Baldinglocked8/114/175
282 Daahes
Shaped as though in need of the run when ninth of 13 in novice event at Ffos Las (7.4f, good, 14/1) on debut 28 days ago. Open to progress.
9-2Jim CrowleyRichard Hannonlocked12/116/133
01 Ballymore Vision
Foaled April 6. 95,000 gns foal, 120,000 gns yearling, Night of Thunder colt. Half-brother to 1m winner Scherzo. Dam, 1¼m winner, half-sister to very smart winner up to 9f Mufarrh.
9-2Pat DobbsRichard Hannonlocked20/125/125
03 Escarpment
Foaled March 25. £67,000 yearling, Fastnet Rock gelding. Dam, 6f/7f winner, half-sister to useful winner up to 1½m Anhar.
9-2Tom MarquandFreddie & Martyn locked22/128/127
89 Ready Reckoner
Debut run on the July course wasn't devoid of promise but he wasn't in the same form when sixth of 9 in minor event at Pontefract (6f, good) 8 days ago.
9-2Hollie DoyleJane Chapple-Hyamlocked66/150/124
1511 Sunrise Boy
Showed a bit when seventh of 12 in maiden at Chelmsford (7f) on debut 15 days ago. Open to improvement.
9-2Daniel MuscuttLucy Wadhamlocked66/140/139
217 Lord Louis
Shaped as though in need of the run when tenth of 12 in novice event at Kempton (7f) on debut 21 days ago.

Race 6 Newmarket 16:45 Listed (Class 1) 12f

761 Without A Fight
Gained second listed success of career at York (13.8f) in June and followed up in Group 3 over same C&D when landing 3-runner John Smith's Silver Cup a month later. Can give another good account despite conceding weight all round.
9-12Andrea AtzeniSimon & Ed locked2.25/12.5/111
67 Siskany
Very smart gelding who proved a disappointment on back of 7 months off (has gone well fresh previously) when eighth of 9 in 11f Newbury Group 3 last Saturday. However, interesting connections turn him out quickly and bounce back distinctly possible. Cheekpieces on 1st time.
9-7William BuickCharlie Applebylocked2.75/12.75/10
482 Passion And Glory
Group 3 winner at Goodwood (12f) last term and back to best when landing 7-runner Sandown listed event (10f) in July. Not in same form at Haydock (10.5f) 48 days ago but he arrives here with yard amongst the winners.
9-10Hollie DoyleSaeed bin Suroorlocked5.5/13.33/139
343 Candleford
Progressive 3-y-o who took another sizeable step forward when easily landing Duke of Edinburgh at Royal Ascot on his reappearance. Not seen to best effect either start since, latterly when midfield in last month's Ebor and likely he still has more to offer.
9-7Tom MarquandWilliam Haggaslocked6/16/10
345 Global Storm
Smart performer who was a game winner in handicap company at Meydan in February and has run creditably in defeat since, 4.5 lengths ninth of 20 in last month's Sky Bet Ebor. Not out of things eased back in trip.
9-7Ryan MooreCharlie Applebylocked7/18/114
356 Juan De Montalban
Firmly back on track for Kevin Philippart de Foy this term, adding a second Ascot handicap (12f) to his tally in July, asserting final 100 yds. Eighth in race won by Farhan at York thereafter (11 lb better off with that rival now). Has since switched yards.
9-7Jack MitchellGeorge Bougheylocked14/118/129
There are 6 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 7 Newmarket 17:20 Handicap (Class 3) 9f

1787 Stormy Ocean
All-the-way winner of a Newcastle novice in January and shaped better than the result when third on handicap debut at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in March, unable to overcome poor draw. Remains with potential and bold show likely if fully tuned-up for this assignment.
9-9William BuickCharlie Applebylocked1.38/12/145
61 Value Theory
Resumed winning ways at Ripon last month and followed up in good style off 3 lb higher over 1¼m here (good to firm) 6 days ago. 1 lb 'well in' under a penalty and likely to give it a good shot, for all that this is a more competitive race.
10-16exDaniel MuscuttCharlie & Mark locked3/12.5/117
353 Leuven Power
Clear-cut winner of a 1m Salisbury handicap last month but failed to make an impact under a penalty at York 9 days later and new mark has now kicked in (effectively 5 lb higher than that off which he was competing at York). Cheekpieces applied.
9-11Andrea AtzeniRoger Varianlocked7/17.5/17
916 Turntable
Good record at Newmarket (form figures on the July Course/Rowley Mile combined read 1412125) and was nicely on top at the finish when landing this race last year. 5 lb higher this time round, though, and needs to bounce back from a below-par effort when last seen in June.
9-10Kaiya FraserChris Walllocked12/111/18
214 Colour Image
Got off the mark in handicaps when taking a 4-runner event at Bath in June, bumped last ½f and just holding on. By no means disgraced in a minor event at Ascot (1m, good) last time but his profile is rather patchy and others look stronger here.
9-11Daniel TudhopeSaeed bin Suroorlocked14/111/121
3310 Coase
Has largely acquitted himself well since narrowly landing a 10-runner 1m handicap here off a 1 lb higher mark in April. Easy to forgive this 5-y-o for a rare below-par effort at Sandown last time and he's not without each-way hope.
9-4Neil CallanMichael Wighamlocked16/19/144
215 United Front
Enhanced fine AW strike rate during the winter, winning pair of handicaps in December prior to good third in the Lincoln Trial in March. Record stands at 0-12 on turf, but his mark reflects that and he'll be dangerous if, as expected, they go a good gallop here.
9-11Frederick LarsonMichael Applebylocked16/111/131
552 The City's Phantom
Back with a bang when landing a 1¼m Yarmouth handicap by six lengths on return in April. However, remains 5 lb above that winning mark, despte finishing nearer last than first on each of his 3 subsequent starts, and connections now turn to cheekpieces.
9-12Hollie DoyleRichard Spencerlocked25/116/136
1511 Cu Chulainn
Appeared to be back on the right track when scoring on the AW at Lingfield in June, but has since retreated back into his shell and it's probably best to look elsewhere.
9-1David EganBrian Meehanlocked40/122/145
348 Absolute Ruler
Initial promise he showed for Donnacha O'Brien as a 2-y-o now seems like a long time ago following a couple of lacklustre performances in handicaps for new connections.
9-9Tom MarquandJennie Candlishlocked50/180/160
There are 10 runners in this race.
