"...he surely has a race like this in him from his current mark."

Timeform on Kipps

12:10 - GROUP ONE POWER (5) didn't need to improve on his debut win to defy a penalty at Lingfield back in February, and after losing his unbeaten record in a strong race at Yarmouth on his reappearance, he shaped much better than the result at Royal Ascot last time, likely to have gone very close with a clearer run through. He remains well treated, and with further improvement anticipated, he should be up to defying this mark.

12:45 - CELSIUS (1) was prolific in handicaps last season, winning four times from six outings, and he resumed his progress to make a comfortable winning return at Haydock last month. He is best forgiven his poor run at Haydock (6f) last time after being denied a clear run late on, but back over the minimum trip here, he remains one to be interested in.

13:15 - SAEIQA (7) showed plenty to work with on debut when going down only to a pair who were a bit more clued up, and he built on the promise of that run when posting a big effort to finish third in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot last time. This is obviously a big step back in class from that and looks a good opportunity for him to open his account.

13:50 - GLENN COCO (13) is eleven runs without a win, but that win did come over this course and distance with Oisin Murphy in the saddle. He is back on a handy mark now, and with Murphy back in the plate, he looks well worth a chance in a trappy affair.

14:25 - TIME SCALE (10) caught the eye when a not knocked about seventh on debut at the beginning of last month, and hasn't looked back since, supplementing her maiden win at Chepstow in listed company on the Rowley course 12 days ago. This looks a stiffer task but she should go on improving and gets the nod to take the step up in class in her stride.

15:00 - THEMAXWECAN (5) showed plenty of progression for Mark Johnston last season and, back down to this trip at Royal Ascot last time, shaped very well under a much more conservative ride than usual, keeping on well for fourth after encountering a rather troubled passage. He appeals as the type to go on improving as a four-year-old, and with Ryan Moore taking over in the saddle, he looks a major player here.

15:35 - KIPPS (11) finished runner-up in a strong novice event at Wolverhampton on debut, and didn't need to improve on that to open his account at the second time of asking at Lingfield over Christmas. He shaped really well when runner-up at Haydock and Royal Ascot this season, just going down to one who had a positional advantage on the latter occasion, and he surely has a race like this in him from his current mark.

16:10 - TEREBELLUM (6) didn't make it to the racecourse as a juvenile but she showed plenty of progression as a three-year-old last season, and she didn't need to improve on that form to land the Group 2 Dahlia Stakes at this venue on her reappearance last month. She then produced a career-best effort to finish runner-up in the Queen Anne at Royal Ascot last time, taking the drop back to a mile in her stride and improving another chunk, ensuring Circus Maximus had to pull out all the stops to claim victory. She is a very progressive filly who may do better still, and this looks a good opportunity for her to claim a first win at the highest level against her own sex.
