1.5pts win CASPAR NETSCHER 5/1 (Generally available) Emaar Middle Park Stakes
1.5pts win BAPAK CHINTA 5/1 (Generally available) Emaar Middle Park Stakes

This dosen't have the make up of your typical Middle Park and the race is unlikely to have any impact on next years 2,000 Guineas. Caspaar Netscher is progressing all the time, takes his racing well and has a level of form as good as anything on offer here.He is sure to figure.

Kevin Ryan won this six years ago and is having his best season for a while. Bapak Chinta has been absent since winning at Royal Ascot but is clearly a quality performer and one of only a couple here who could be a few lengths better than what he has already shown.

3pts win POWER 3/1 (Generally available) Dubai Dewhurst Stakes

This colt has stonewall solid claims and is fairly priced around the 3/1 mark. When winning the Coventry he looked as though a step up in trip will suit and that was confimred by his National Stakes victory - a race in which the form has already been advertised by the third home winning the Beresford. He must surely take all the beating here.

1.5pts win VEILED 14/1 (Generally available) Betfred Cesarewitch
1.5pts win KEYS 14/1 (Generally available) Betfred Cesarewitch

Veiled has been put away for this after winning the Ascot Stakes. The comedown in trip will not hinder, he is nicely drawn, still open to further improvement and looks capable of winning this off a 7lb higher rating before going on and having a rewarding campaign when returned to hurdles this winter.

Keys is another with an interesting winter ahead of him if thats the way they go - interestingly, they were considering the Jockey Club Cup for him and he does travel like a classy performer. Richard Hughes hasen't ridden him before but looks the ideal partner and this lightly raced gelding cannot be left out of calculations.

2pts win ALSINDI 11/2 (Generally available) Vision Rockfel Stakes
1pt win SUNDAY TIMES 4/1 (Generally available) Vision Rockfel Stakes

Clive Brittain has a couple of highly promising juveniles in his yard this time round and Alsindi is already looking like a filly who will hold her own in better company than she has encountered. The form of the Oh So Sharp has yet to be tested but all the right stables had runners in the race and if, as the visual impression suggests, she is suited by this extra furlong, she will probably win this.

Sunday Times is another stepping up in trip. Her Cheverley Park second is the best piece of form on offer here and she must be included.
