IBRAZ (4.30) will be hard to beat if handling Ripon's notorious undulations. Roger Varian's three-year-old split a useful pair in Qaysar and Nahaar at Newmarket and all three career wins have come on good to firm ground.
Fayez is a dual course winner over ten furlongs so will have no problems with the track. He is up 5lb for his 25-1 Glorious Goodwood victory but should still be involved.
The Amateur Riders' Derby at Epsom is always an interesting contest and John Quinn is bringing Jamie Codd over from Ireland to ride MISTIROC (3.40). Although the eight-year-old is carrying top weight, he is slipping down the ratings and a recent pipe-opener over hurdles at Perth should have put him spot-on.
