Forecast

Mustadeem (2/5), New Brunswick (6/1), Mistamel (10/1), Tom Hark (10/1), Darshini (14/1), Cahill (16/1), Althon (20/1), Silver Quay (33/1), The Way You Dance (50/1), Thewaythewindblows (66/1)

Verdict

Tom Hark should improve on his debut fourth at Kempton while Mistamel showed promise at Windsor but it will probably take a smart performance to lower the colours of MUSTADEEM. He made the well-regarded Estidhkaar pull out all the stops over this trip at Newbury last month and has entries in a couple of valuable sales races in the autumn. John Gosden's pair Althon and New Brunswick should win races, the latter being a £90,000 yearling whose dam won over 1m as a juvenile. Darshini's sire Sir Percy is producing a few good winners while The Way You Dance is speedily bred.
