G3 - 1703m – Turf

1

Sovereign Debt

Can boast 13 wins and 19 seconds and is thriving for his new stable, notably when winning a G2 at Sandown last time, having previously won the valuable 1600m race on the all-weather at Lingfield. Best on good or softer.

2

Custom Cut

Gained the 13th victory of his career and returned to winning form after some disappointments with a smooth front-running display over 1600m at Leopardstown last month. The ground was quick there but usually at his best on good or slower.

3

Ballet Concerto

Gelded prior to this season, starting off when produced with a powerful surge to beat a huge field in a Doncaster handicap over the straight 1600m. Disappointing in a hot handicap at Newmarket subsequently, not looking happy on fast ground. 

4

Folkswood

He enjoyed a rewarding spell at Meydan earlier in the year including a 1800m handicap win. Described by his trainer as 'laid back', he has been placed in G3's at Newmarket and Chester since, both good solid efforts.

5

Gabrial

The winner of 8 of his 63 starts, his only previous Epsom visit being when third in this race way back in 2013. Tends to start slowly and finish strongly like when second in a Sandown G2 two starts back and may again find one or two rivals too strong.

6

Here Comes When

He gained his seventh career win when staying on strongly to win a Listed handicap at York last month, an excellent start to 2017. Favoured by a good or slow surface, he has run well at G1 level in the past so has no worries in this class. 

7

Kool Kompany

Closed fast and late to win a Listed contest at Doncaster on his seasons return, despite having been hard to get fit according to his trainer. More recently he led in a G2 at Sandown but then stopped quickly, fading right out. He's better than that.

8

Oh This Is Us

Proved that he could operate above handicap level when surviving a troubled passage to win a Listed contest at Haydock last month. He is in great form this season and appears to be still improving as well as being really tough and consistent.
