3 x Distance Winner - Won 3 times before at this distance
French Group 2 winning juvenile, but he failed to score in his seven starts last year. Has not been seen since finishing last of three runners in a conditions race at Lingfield in September. Just a watching brief is advised on his reappearance today.
Won 6f French Group 2 as 2yo; however, was mainly on the downgrade last year

6 x Distance Winner - Won 6 times before at this distance
Winner of this race last year; landed a Windsor handicap afterwards. Has not been at his best in two starts so far this season, but as a result of those performances, he is now back down to last year’s winning mark, and he is likely to have been aimed at this.
Won this last year off current mark, later won at Windsor from 4lb higher; below best 2019

Upwardly mobile sprinter who has won four of his six starts since joining these connections; all victories coming on the All-Weather. Claims if maintaining his upward curve now back on turf, albeit that does look doubtful.
Won four of last five starts on AW; 20lb higher than last turf start but has won on grass

Landed back to back handicaps last season; more recent of those coming in this grade at Ascot. Has not been seen since disappointing in a handicap at Newmarket in October, however, and she is entitled to need this comeback run.
Won two handicaps over this trip last season; disappointing latest but still has potential

Close second at Doncaster in September, but he arrives here with the three duck eggs by his name. His losing run currently stretches back to May 2017, and those recent efforts have not suggested that he will be breaking his duck anytime soon.
Not won since 2017; runner-up four times last year, but not found form yet this term

Lightly raced four-year-old who is unbeaten from his two starts to date; both successes coming on Polytrack. Now makes his handicap/turf debut, however, and the assessor appears to have taken no chances with his opening mark.
$700,000 yearling with top pedigree; won both starts in minor 6f AW events; holds G1 entry

Group 3 winning juvenile, but he has gained just the one win from his thirty-one starts since. Down the field at Ffos Las when last seen in August. Can go well fresh, but others look far more likely winners this afternoon.
Hard to win with these days, although was good third from 3lb higher on last year's return

3 x Distance Winner - Won 3 times before at this distance
Returned to winning ways in a handicap at Kempton last month, and he was far from disgraced when third at Doncaster afterwards. Gets in here off the same mark, but this does look a more competitive race, so he likely holds each-way claims at best.
Three wins 2018; improved a bit to add another at Kemp in April; 3rd off this mark latest

3 x Distance Winner - Won 3 times before at this distance
Landed successive Class 4 handicaps on Polytrack earlier this year, but he came up short in his bid for the hat-trick when sixth at Kempton last time out. Has something to prove on the back of that run, and he is a three-race maiden on turf.
Three 6f AW wins including two this year; below best latest; could still have more to give

Verdict

Habub has potential, but FILLE DE REVE (nap) makes most appeal. She's unexposed as a sprinter and looks capable of progressing.
