Addictive Dream made a good start for this yard at Meydan in 2012, winning his first 2 starts, but has been plagued by weak finishing since, albeit running respecably on his last 4 starts.
Borderlescott was the Nunthorpe hero in 2008 and 2009. Showed he's still capable of useful form this year and can't rule out
Doc Hay is a useful sprinter who's been running mainly respectably this term, catching the eye in the Portland last time. Unlikely to be far away.
Monsieur Joe is pretty smart on day, winning at listed/Group 3 level in France last year. Not at best this term, however, running poorly after a break last time
Swendab is a front runner who's been better than ever this year, winning 3 times, including Newbury and Yarmouth last month. Below form last 2 starts, though, and bit to find here
Tiddliwinks won Duke of York and Greenlands Stakes in 2012. Nowhere near form of those efforts this term, however.
Valbchek won his first 2 starts in 2012, but found out in pattern company afterwards. Ran well in defeat both starts this term and has to be considered at this level.
Rocky Ground was an impressive winner on debut last summer. Lightly raced since, showing improvement when second at Leicester last time. Still unexposed.
Excelette has won just once since her 2-y-o days, but she's found the frame in 4 of 6 listed events this year. More than capable of being involved.
Hoyam was successful twice as a juvenile over this trip but improvement appears to have stalled, below form last twice. Dropping in grade now.
1. Doc Hay
Timeform View: Doc Hay caught the eye in the Portland last time and looks ready to strike. Excelette, Valbchek and Borderlescott make up the shortlist.
