capo He was unable to justify strong support on his debut for the Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot, but he made a very encouraging appearance in the face of such a challenging task. Capo was hit by just over three lengths in sixth, and he could ramp up his effort as he challenged on the wing and for part of the race when the tempo was up. He is entitled to apply for this initial trial, which is an exciting prospect.

Mildenberger He put in a trustworthy effort when he scored sixth at the Red Sea Turf Handicap in Saudi Arabia in February, and looked as good as ever when he was fifth under heavyweight at the Northumberland Plate in Newcastle last Saturday. The look he showed off from the BHA 111 mark at the Northumberland Plate is with the best showing and should come close if he doesn’t find this race too close.

La Pulga finished fourth at Haydock on Thursday and is certainly an unexpected runner, so, in his expected absence, it might be worth siding with Gaius. Gaius He offered a lot to work with as runner-up on his debut at Windsor in May, and ran to a similar level when he was third in Newbury last month. Newbury winner, Great Max, finished third at Chesham at Royal Ascot, so Gaius had a tough job on that occasion but might be able to make up for it here.

Jon Lieber failed to meet expectations in the derby last time, but he has made an excellent impression previously and can make the most of this drop in the class. John LieberThe son of Oaks winner Frankel’s Snow Fairy, he was an elegant Newcastle rookie winner on his re-emergence and took a huge step forward to win a Grand Prix at Newmarket, although signs of inexperience continued to appear. He’s found Derby coming up very early in his development but he’s still a bunch of serious potential and he could get back on track here.

Classic Lord He stayed strong to win the mile-and-a-half handicap at Haydock in May, enjoying the focus on the endurance offered by the heavy ground, and ran to a similar level under less favorable conditions at Chester last time, only to fail. Reel in a subsequent winner. He would fit in this tougher trail and climb a mile and three quarters, and he’s an expert at climbing.

Take one for the team He scored in Doncaster in April and remained in good shape, finishing second in Bath and Nottingham in their next two matches. Takeonefortheteam ran as well as ever in Nottingham last time, but only failed and moved away from third place. He should make another good account under Megan Wingrove, who was on board for his Doncaster success.
