BEAUTIFUL AISLING sets the standard based on what she has achieved in three outings, with a pair of seconds at Sandown and Chelmsford followed by her finishing down the field in the Albany at Royal Ascot. Given time to recover from her latest outing, this appears to be an excellent opportunity for the daughter of Havana Gold to shed the maiden tag. Cotai Pearl is better judged on her debut effort when runner-up at Musselburgh than when finishing down the field at Thirsk last time, while Parr Fire and Greenroad also warrant respect.
Prediction : 1st Beautiful Aisling 2nd Cotai Pearl 3rd Parr Fire

LEADING COMPANY got off the mark at the fifth time of asking over C&D last month, with the margin of victory potentially underplaying the authority of that success having waited for a run in the closing stages. He is open to further improvement and could defy a 4lb rise from the handicapper. My Honey B commands respect having finished ahead of the selection here on her latest start. She is expected to be in the mix, along with handicap debutants Frank Ross Is Out and Madam Macho.
Prediction : 1st Leading Company 2nd My Honey B 3rd Frank Ross Is Out

REFUGE arrives having won three of his last four starts, with all of those victories coming at Hamilton, and the five-year-old makes plenty of appeal in the attempt to continue his excellent run of form. Sugar Baby is likely to be in the mix following his recent successes at Thirsk and Musselburgh, while Melody King and Latin Five appear best of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Refuge 2nd Sugar Baby 3rd Melody King

AT THE DOUBLE looks to have been found an excellent opportunity to get back to winning ways by his shrewd trainer. The three-year-old gelding failed to follow up his impressive Salisbury win when second behind Mukha Magic at Nottingham five days later, but that form has been boosted since with the winner going in again. Tommaso has been dropped 1lb for his third at York and looks the biggest threat, while Monticello outran his odds at Carlisle at the start of the month and is also noted.
Prediction : 1st At The Double 2nd Tommaso 3rd Monticello

A drop to 5f seemed to suit GEMCUTTER on her most recent outing, recording her best run to date finishing second at Musselburgh. She is now rated 2lb higher for that run, but Harry Russell's 3lb claim makes her seem feasibly treated. Majil seeks to build on her latest third-placed effort on the all-weather, while Habana Flyer represents an in-form stable and could also get involved on her handicap bow.
Prediction : 1st Gemcutter 2nd Majil 3rd Habana Flyer

There has been no stopping the Tim Easterby-trained TEMPER TRAP and the fact he loses Brandon Wilkie's 8lb claim in this contest should not be a cause for concern, given the five-year-old bolted up on his most recent outing over 1m at Ripon. Strangerontheshore drops in class following a disappointing run at Pontefract last month and seems a threat, while Dr Rio drops in trip and completes the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Temper Trap 2nd Strangerontheshore 3rd Dr Rio
