6:10 Leicester (22nd july)

An auction for for colts and fillies over this 7f9y.

This doesn't look the most competitive of races and one or two form horses are likely to prove best.

Chairman Pat has been consistent although has the look of a juvenile that will struggle to get his head in front. Both races at Kempton and Lingfield have shown an element of ability and once again place claims are likely but that winning vein of form may prove more difficult to find.

Giulietta Da Vinci has been relatively fancied on both starts but needs to improve a fraction after her fifth to Gobama.

Richard Fahey has been in excellent for all season and is a powerful trainer in the two-year-old ranks. I wasn't sure what to make of Layla's Boy when second to Tukitinyasok at Ayr, but the winner, trained by Roger Fisher, ran a great race in a conditional sakes event suggesting the form could be strong. I can see this juvenile going very well here.

A watching race.
