Timeform on Great Ambassador
NAP: Great Ambassador can show his class
Great Ambassador is one of the most progressive sprinters around in 2021 and he made it three wins for the year in a listed race at York last month. He ran another big race in the Ayr Gold Cup last time, filling the runner-up spot behind Bielsa who raced alone on the opposite side of the track. Still relatively lightly raced as a sprinter, Great Ambassador remains open to more improvement and is fancied to take the step up in grade here in his stride.
NEXT BEST: Hukum has obvious claims
Hukum has already won a pair of Group 3 races this season, putting up his best performance when winning the Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury for the second year in succession. He was turned over at short odds but still ran respectably in the September Stakes at Kempton last time, losing out by just a neck in a messy affair. He is a solid operator at this sort of level and should mount a bold bid to regain the winning thread under a 3 lb penalty.
EACH-WAY: River Nymph stands out in handicap
River Nymph recorded his second win from as many starts over this course and distance when accounting for 26 rivals in the Victoria Cup in May. He is only 4 lb higher in the weights here and there was plenty to like about his latest effort in a listed race at Newbury, making good late headway to be beaten less than four lengths. He is entitled to strip fitter with that first outing for four months under his belt and this looks the obvious next step given how effective he is at Ascot.
