There's a full book of rides for Ryan on the Knavesmire and you can read what he thinks about the entire team here...

"You only have to look at his Melbourne Cup third and his sixth in the Hong Kong Vase at the end of last year to show you what a good horse he is on his day, and the vibes seem positive enough."

Carrie needs to take a step forward but don't rule that out

Carrie's Vision

She appeared to knuckle down well when winning on her debut at Yarmouth. I am not sure how strong that form is, although the second ran well next time, but you can't really argue with the filly winning on her racecourse debut. She will need to step up a fair amount to trouble form horses like No Lippy, but a quick glance at the field tells you that could be any number of potential winners lurking in here. It's just a matter of who takes the biggest step forward.

Nell Gwyn form and increased trip are in Juliet's favour

Juliet Foxtrot

There are a few who have shown a fair bit more than my filly in here, too - most obviously the Lowther winner Threading - but she ran well enough in Group 3 company after winning her novice by 7 lengths at Goodwood last season. The Nell Gwyn is maybe better than it looked at the time, so her fifth there was probably a decent enough effort, and the step up to a mile could well suit on run-style and pedigree. And Charlie obviously thinks a first-time hood will help her, too.

Switch to flat could spark the Dynamite

Max Dynamite

I suspect Stradivarius will take all the beating here if anywhere near straight, but I am second best in on official ratings on Max Dynamite. Clearly, he has to show a lot more enthusiasm than he did at Cheltenham and Punchestown on his recent hurdling starts, but perhaps a return to the Flat will re-ignite the spark. You only have to look at his Melbourne Cup third and his sixth in the Hong Kong Vase at the end of last year to show you what a good horse he is on his day, and the vibes seem positive enough.

Capton could progress here


He progressed well throughout last season, and he was only denied a hat-trick in the stewards' room after he won at Nottingham on his final start. He looks an uncomplicated front-runner, and hopefully he will continue to progress this season, too.

Crafty can hopefully be competitive

Crafty Madam

This 7f trip on decent ground looks to be her conditions. She went up a fair amount for winning at Sandown last season, but she put up two fair efforts off a 7lb higher mark afterwards, and hopefully she can still be competitive here.

Conditions will suit Koditime


I wouldn't say he looks particularly well treated off a mark of 91 on what we have seen, but this is only his fifth start and you could argue that his best efforts have come over 5f on quick ground, conditions that he is likely to get here. And he ran well when not beaten too far in the Norfolk, so hopefully his class can count.

Cheekpieces on Nuits St Georges

Nuits St Georges

This will be the quickest ground he has encountered and he wears first-time cheekpieces, but he ran well when third on his return over this trip at Doncaster, and he obviously has scope for improvement. Other than that, I can't tell you a great deal.
