"The booking of Frankie Dettori also bodes well..."

Timeform on Western Way

13:55 - FLATTERING (4) left her two-year-old debut form well behind when storming clear to land a Cork maiden by 10 lengths last week, and she rates an exciting prospect for team Ballydoyle. She will likely prove hard to beat, but Stream Song is well worth a crack at this level, while Lady of Shalott is sure to have more to offer over this sort of trip given the stamina in her pedigree.

14:30 - KEW GARDENS (1) will be suited by the step up in trip and can leave his reappearance behind like many from his yard have done this season and provide the all-conquering Aidan O'Brien with a fifth winner of this race since 2008. Corelli was very impressive on his Yarmouth return and could be the one to provide the main threat, although the likes of Knight To Behind, Star of Southwold, Thrave and King And Empire are all open to progress.

15:05 - FAMOUS DYNASTY (5) doesn't have the most appealing profile, with just one win from 23 Flat runs, but he doesn't seem to be doing much wrong at present and looks capable of landing a race like this. Midnight Mood is potentially well treated if able to build on her latest effort, while Miss Inga Sock is another to consider.

15:40 - None of these can be ruled out but ONE MASTER (4) progressed quickly in three outings last season and the manner in which she won a listed event at Ascot suggests she can take the step up to this level in her stride. French-filly Hunaina showed good acceleration when winning a listed event at Kempton and is next best ahead of three-year-old Tajaanus, who shaped well in the Fred Darling on her return.

16:15 - WESTERN WAY (1) came clear with an improver when resuming winning ways at Wolverhampton last time and a further 4 lb rise may not prevent him going in again back on turf. The booking of Frankie Dettori also bodes well. Mancini hails from a yard in flying form and could provide the main threat on the back of his reappearance success at Chelmsford.

16:50 - ASHAZURI (1) showed improved form when just denied at Brighton 11 days ago, coming clear of the rest and, despite a subsequent 4 lb rise in the weights, he will be a big player if able to reproduce that. Epsom Secret and Windsorlot are others to consider look the biggest dangers.

17:20 - WARSAW ROAD (4) made a very encouraging return in a messy race at Kempton and makes plenty of appeal under Ryan Moore having won here last summer. Black Bess scored at this meeting last year and will be a player if building on last month's reappearance.

17:50 - WHITEFOUNTAINFAIRY's (4) runner-up effort in the Prestige Stakes reads very well in light of subsequent events and that is the best form on offer, so assuming she's fully wound-up for this return, she should take some stopping. Natural is a big threat on the pick of her juvenile efforts, while Island of Life has more ability than we've seen so far.
