"the form he has shown so far puts him comfortably clear of the field on Timeform's weight-adjusted ratings."
Timeform on Impulsion
14:10 - IMPULSION (1) is dropping in class having run creditably in a Group 3 last time, and the form he has shown so far puts him comfortably clear of the field on Timeform's weight-adjusted ratings. Accommodate is sure to do better with a promising debut behind her, while there are a number of interesting newcomers on show, headed by Godolphin's Orchid Star.
14:40 - BLOORIEDOTCOM (6) looked rusty making his all-weather bow after 12 weeks off at Wolverhampton last month, but he ran creditably by the end, keeping on to take second place close home, and there could be more to come now upped in trip. The money for Naqaawa this morning is interesting and she's feared, ahead of Rake's Progress.
15:15 - GOOD TYNE GIRL (1) failed to land a blow in a nursery last time, but she was successful at this level on penultimate start and will prove hard to beat under Silvestre De Sousa if coping with this step up in trip. Popping Corks looks the pick of the Hannon-trained trio and gets the nod for forecast purposes ahead of Go Annie Go and Bandola.
15:45 - Just the three taking their chance, but an intriguing contest nonetheless. EQUILATERAL (2) has failed to make his mark in Group company the last twice, but he remains a sprinter of considerable potential judged on his impressive reappearance victory at Doncaster and is hard to oppose down in class and trip here. Line of Reason is not short of ability, but will do well to trouble Equilateral on these terms, a remark which also applies to the filly Sarshampla.
16:20 - MUKALAL (2) was back on his game when fifth in a strong handicap at Goodwood and makes plenty of appeal having dropped to his last winning mark with Ryan Moore booked. Perfect Hustler was denied a clear run when attempting to supplement his Ascot success at Kempton last month, so needs treating as though still in top form, and he is feared most.
16:50 - With Al Mureib a significant non-runner this morning, a chance is taken on the debutant BRASCA (2). Of the four runners left, only In The Cove has experience, and he doesn't set a daunting standard. A brother to useful 2-y-o 1m winner Highgarden, Brasca makes the most appeal on paper and is taken to make a winning debut, ahead of Desert Friend.
17:25 - Things rather went TRAVELTALK's (4) way at Newcastle recently, but he nevertheless did the job well and and may have enough in the locker to follow up off a 7 lb higher mark here. Next on the list is Long Call, who has slipped to a career-low mark and 1¾m probably stretched him on soft ground at Ffos Las last time. Bayston Hill has the assistance of Jason Watson and also enters calculations.
