Cape of Hope is the obvious one after getting off the mark in an ordinary Doncaster maiden from which he should progress on this first venture into handicap company. However, he didn't accomplish that victory with any degree of comfort and might find things tough against his elders now. Unlikely to offer any value, we'll take a chance on UPRISE. Tom Queally has a good record for George Margarson and the pair teamed up last week to land the leading juvenile fillies' race of the Newmarket July meeting with Lucky Kristale. Their contender here has shown little the last twice but has slipped to a mark of 66 and showed decent form when eighth behind Gabbiano in a large-field sprint at Ascot in May. A fair 3-y-o, he's given another chance off this mark. Belle Bayardo is solid and consistent and should run her race once again off topweight.
