1:30PM – Curragh
The Joseph O’Brien-trained two-year-old shaped with plenty of ability, debuting behind a strong winner, when finishing strongly at Curragh over 7f. He ran green throughout, with a huge amount of ground to make up from the 2f pole, but once finding his stride, he came home with a late rattle. The Wootton Basset colt is a big, scopey individual who is out of a sister to a Group Three scorer and is likely to step forward considerably on second career outing.

A couple of big prices catch the eye in the stamina-sapping handicap over two miles. ISLAND BRAVE could bounce back to form after a pair of downfield efforts this term. He has performed better than those results indicate, though, including when keeping on nicely over 1m6 at this track on penultimate run. Heather Main’s charge is well handicapped on old form – 3lb below his previous winning mark – and stayed on well for fourth in this event last season. He could pick up some place money in the final throes of this test.
MAKE MY DAY travelled strongly prior to being inconvenienced by a loose horse in a stronger Goodwood handicap eight days ago. The six-year-old could improve dropping in trip – he was a shade unfortunate when second over course and distance behind likely favourite Super Superjack earlier this season – which could see him in better light at huge double-figure odds. Danny Tudhope is an eye catching jockey booking and has been riding in excellent form at Ascot this campaign, including four winners at the Royal meeting in June.

MONTASSIB is ideally placed to gain a deserved handicap success following excellent form in strong contests, including a running-on fourth in a valuable Newmarket event over 7f. The rise in distance is expected to suit, with the promise of further improvement with a thoroughly unexposed profile. It would be a surprise if he was not to be involved in the finish.

BRADSELL can remain unbeaten following a wildly impressive victory in the G2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot. He travelled powerfully throughout and showed a smart turf of foot to put the race to bed in a matter of strides. Hollie Doyle’s mount has been kept fresh for this Group One assignment, and with the potential for further progress, he can show his star quality in what looks a superb renewal of the G1 Phoenix Stakes. The son of Tasleet has got the beating of rivals Blackbeard and Persian Force from that run in June, with the main danger on the figures likely to come from the rapidly improving Little Big Bear, who also scored at Royal Ascot.

5:35PM – Lingfield
There was a quiet introduction given to RUNNING LION over 7f at Newmarket last month. She missed the break but travelled with plenty of enthusiasm, before running on under tender handling in the final couple of furlongs. The half-sister to Majestic Glory, a Group Three scorer, should be more streetwise second time out and should prove hard to beat if stepping forward.
