There should be more to come from the Frankel colt BEN VRACKIE and he gets the vote over fellow 3yo Austrian School.
Won the 2017 Northumberland Plate off today's mark, with all his best form coming on the Synethics. He's an eleven-race maiden on the turf and his form this year wouldn't suggest he'll be winning any time soon.
Won last year's Northumberland Plate; well held in the latest renewal of that contest

Won a very competitive handicap at Meydan in February, placed at Royal Ascot prior to a close third in a Newbury Group 3. Remains on a workable mark and the yard is going extremely well at present. Live claims.
Solid third in Royal Ascot handicap and Newbury Group 3 the last twice; shortlisted

2017 Ebor winner whose only run of note this year came when fifth in the JLT Cup at Newbury. Remains above his last winning mark and has a massive weight to carry in this contest. Likely to find a few too well treated.
Won the Ebor in 2017; would be dangerous if retuning to that career-best form

Beaten just a neck in Listed company on his return in April but has shaped with little promise since. Beaten a fair way in a Glorious Goodwood handicap in August and the handicapper is only slowly relenting his grip. Yard in poor form.
Ran well in Listed company on reappearance; not in the same form since

Won this race twelve months ago off five pounds lower, a mixed bag since. Andrea Atzeni, who rides this track incredibly, is on board today and if returning to anywhere near his best off this mark, he'd be going very close today.
Won this race 12 months ago; has Doncaster supremo Andrea Atzeni on board

Returned to form with a bang at York three weeks ago, winning by four lengths despite pulling far too hard. Eleven pounds higher today but does have potential for even better up an extra two furlongs. Must, however, settle better today.
Decisive winner when upped to 1m4f at York; worth a crack at this longer trip; player

Got up by a head at Ascot in July prior to a very good third in a valuable handicap at York in August. Two pounds higher today, but he's still unexposed as a stayer and Ryan Moore is up, so he's dangerous to discount.
Useful form upped to 2m the last twice; still unexposed as a stayer; not ruled out

Gained his first turf win when readily coming clear at Nottingham in August, only four pounds higher today. Remains well treated on his All-Weather exploits but does need a shade more to be winning such a competitive contest.
Scored comfortably at Nottingham last month; remains well treated on AW exploits

Lightly raced three-year-old who has progressed with each start, third in a Group 3 at Goodwood last month. Makes his handicap debut off an interesting looking mark and Frankie Dettori is up today, each-way contender.
Runner-up to St Leger hope Maid Up in Goodwood Group 3 last time; still unexposed

|12 Jul 18||Newbury||1m 2f GF||53yNv||9-2||7/12||Al Kherb (4¾L)||12/1||-||74|
Slowly heading the right way this year, winning a handicap at Goodwood three weeks ago by three lengths. Ten pounds higher today in a much tougher race, but he's unexposed at the trip and should be suited by a strongly-run contest.
Emphatic winner at Goodwood latest outing; now 2-2 over 1m6f; more to come

|10 Oct 17||Leicester||1m 4f Sft||43yHc||8-10||1/7||Reshoun (nk)||5/4F||73||85|
Has proven mainly progressive, though he couldn't follow up a recent Newmarket success when beaten a long way at Pontefract. Step up in distance could suit but latest run off this mark raised plenty of question marks.
Has looked largely progressive in his 1m4f races; this new trip is worth exploring

|19 Aug 17||Newbury||1m 4f Sft||33yMd||9-5||2/12||Gold Star (3L)||11/4||78||81|
Consistent sort who has not finished outside the top three in his last five starts. Bumped into a well-treated rival at Goodwood last time and only headed late on. Due to be two pounds higher, could have a role to play.
Consistent 3yo; clear second at Goodwood ten days ago; due to go up 2lb in future

Trouble seeker who was placed in a lower grade at Hamilton two weeks ago, flying home when it was just too late. That is often the theme with him and given his heavy defeat in this grade two starts ago, he should be struggling today.
Tough sort but looks set for a supporting role in this grade

|27 Jun 18||Carlisle||1m 3f GF||4Hc||9-5||8/9||Aasheq (8¼L)||10/1||76||75|
Keen going sort who was likely flattered by his twelve-length success at Haydock two starts ago. Not disgraced at Newbury last time but a further step up in grade is likely to find him out, especially if refusing to settle.
Probably flattered by his winning margin at Haydock two starts back; vulnerable
