Polski Max won his maiden at Southwell in very good style and was by no means disgraced when sent to Royal Ascot for the Windsor Castle Stakes. Hiddon Coin disappointed at Newcastle after his Redcar success but may have found the ground too fast. Projectisle made a winning debut on fast going and though finding Ascot's Queen Mary Stakes beyond her she should do much better in this grade and rates a threat. The Sixties couldn't hold the late thrust of Uncomplicated at Yarmouth on Wednesday but shows very good pace and will take some catching here though may set up the race for DREAM SCENARIO, who looked the type to go on to better things when winning smoothly at Beverley and also has the advantage of Neil Farley's claim. Royal Rascal easily won her maiden on soft ground over the C&D and again ran well behind the well-regarded Euxton Hall at Pontefract so Tim Easterby's filly looks the main threat.
