Comment: Fetched £200,000 as a breeze-up buy and looked a good prospect when a 2-length winner of a 12-runner maiden at Leicester a fortnight ago (6f). That form yet to be tested but he's one to note.

Comment: Half-brother to smart 6f performer Encrypted. Showed plenty when fourth to Berkshire Shadow in an extended 5f maiden at Newbury and built on that markedly back there over 6f a month ago. Big player.

Comment: Blinkered when impressively winning 6-runner maiden at Keeneland by 6¼ lengths from Bode By You, drawing clear final 1f. Sure to progress and much depends on whether she sees out 6f fully.

Comment: Eye-catching debut under a considerate ride at the Curragh and looked much more the finished article when justifying strong support at Listowel (6.3f) last week. Sure to progress again.

Comment: Overcame inexperience and unpromising track position to make winning debut in 11-runner maiden at Navan (5.8f). Still not the finished article when runner-up in Group 3 Marble Hill Stakes.

Comment: Overcame inexperience (missed break) when making winning start in 9-runner maiden at Newbury in April. That race worked out well and step up in trip bound to suit (dam won up to 1m and stayed 1¼m).

Comment: Kingman colt who got off to a winning start in 11-runner novice at Yarmouth a month ago (6f). Form isn't anything special (steadily-run race) but he's open to progress for top yard.

Comment: Clearly isn't a straightforward type given he has hung both ways already, but evidently has more than his share of talent, supplementing his Doncaster success in the National Stakes. Up in trip.

Comment: Showed why he was heavily backed to win on debut (managing only fourth) when a decisive winner at Bath (5f) 3 weeks ago. No surprise were he to leave bare form of that behind.

Comment: Bred to stay well and made a pleasing debut when second of 6 at Goodwood 3 weeks ago. Stiff 6f clearly up his street but needs to leave that level behind.

Comment: Travelled with plenty of purpose and was very impressive when landing 8-runner novice at York on debut 24 days ago. That wasn't a deep race for the track but he's a useful prospect in his own right.

Comment: Derived plenty from his debut in the Brocklesby when landing 10-runner novice at Beverley and was impressive when dominating 3 rivals at Ayr. Tries 6f for the first time and he may improve for it.

Comment: Well prepared to win a Musselburgh novice on debut in April. In danger of going the wrong way based on last couple of starts, but drying ground may aid his cause. Plenty to find, though.

GISBRUN was taking on exclusively newcomers at Newbury last month, but it's hard to find fault in a 6.5-length victory backed up by the clock. His strength at the finish was most impressive and he's fancied to wear down Kaufymaker, who, like many Wesley Ward-trained representatives, comes with a big reputation. The Acropolis will go on improving and completes the shortlist.
