1403m – Turf

1 Straight Right Never got competitive after a slow start at Royal Ascot last time. He is slipping down the weights but his 0-10 strike-rate on turf is a worry.
2 Hateya Has gone 16 runs without a win but there have been some near misses and he goes well at this track, his last win came with a last-to-first swoop here.
3 Magical Wish Didn’t make much impact in a Royal Ascot handicap last time, but had previously shown a good attitude to win over this trip at Lingfield.
4 Alemaratalyoum Needs to come from off the speed and his last start suggested that he might be hitting form now. He also ran well on his only Epsom start.
5 Buridan Withdrawn
6 Dirty Rascal Will need to upgrade on his 2020 return when last in a Royal Ascot handicap. Also took time to hit top form in 2019, eventually winning at Goodwood for a different stable.
7 Comin’ Through Led early in the 2018 LONGINES Hong Kong Mile when Australian-trained. Well beaten on most UK starts but encouragement last time, and potentially well handicapped.
8 Reputation Some disappointing runs in the second part of 2019 means he starts 2020 on a reasonable handicap mark. Has won after a break before, and also at this track.
9 Dream Today Hasn’t won for 12 starts but some good performances including when 3rd at Windsor last time. If this awkward track suits, he is quite well handicapped.
10 Markazi May be best leading, tactics that saw him win a handicap off a 4lb easier handicap mark at Ayr last year. Not beaten far on his latest start.
11 Count Otto It is 15 races since he won but this closer might have won two starts back with more luck. His Epsom record is good including a 1200m win here.
12 Muntadab The mount of very talented Ben Curtis, he ran his best race for some time when only just beaten after leading
last month. This trip is ideal.
13 Tintoretto Has won his last two starts and his Kempton win last month looks like a career best. A big horse, hopefully he will be well balanced enough to handle this track.
14 Corazon Espinado His last eight runs have been on all-weather surfaces, but his last turf win came with a front-running victory here at Epsom, a track that suits him.
15 Knowing Glance Twice a winner on all-weather surfaces over this trip earlier in the year. Another decent effort last time when having to challenge wide.
16 Medieval Expensive to follow as he has been beaten in his last 21 starts. Also he hasn’t raced for 271 days. At least his stable are in hot form.
