Michael Bell feels the biggest danger to Born To Surprise in the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot on Thursday could be keeping a lid on him before the off.
The Exceed And Excel colt has plenty of ability, as shown when he won his maiden at Doncaster in April by five lengths, but he cost himself any chance of victory in the Craven Stakes as he got warm before the start and was slowly away.
The Newmarket handler is of the impression that he is much better than his official mark of 92, but harbours doubts about the colt keeping his cool in the red-hot atmosphere generated by 50,000 punters.
"Born To Surprise is potentially very well handicapped if he can reproduce his homework," said Bell.
"If the occasion doesn't get the better of him I think he'll be bang there."
Bell also runs the Highclere Thoroughbred-owned Apostle and said: "Apostle is entitled to take his chance. He's a sound, tough, genuine horse and I'm sure he's got a decent race in him somewhere along the line."
Brian Meehan, fresh from the victory of Most Improved in Tuesday's St James's Palace Stakes, runs the Sir Robert Ogden-owned Mississippi, impressive winner on his first start for the yard but disappointing last time out.
"This three-year-old mile handicap is always one of the most hotly-contested of the entire Royal meeting, but Mississippi could provide the answer," said Meehan on his website.
"Very smart on his 2012 comeback and debut for Manton at Kempton, he probably had too much use made of him at Doncaster soon after.
"He continues to shape very nicely at home and might be well-in enough to collect in a race where unexposed horses from top stables always lurk."Bronze Angel arrives in peak form having won three of his last four races. His one defeat came up at Musselburgh where he was just in front of Gabrial, who finished fifth in the St James's Palace.
"I really like Bronze Angel," said his trainer Marcus Tregoning.
"He's improving quickly, he's very scopey, his form stands up to the closest scrutiny and he's progressing quickly.
"What I think will really be in his favour is the pace they are likely to go. He'll probably get further in time so if they go quick and can see him staying on very strongly at the end.
"The more pace the better for him."
Clive Cox runs both Lucky Henry and Forest Row, and with one preferring fast ground and the other liking it wet, the Lambourn trainer feels he has bases covered.
"Lucky Henry was second in the Silver Bowl at Haydock behind Gabrial, who ran very well in Group One company on Tuesday," said Cox.
"He wouldn't be at home if there was too much rain.
"Forest Row, on the other hand, appreciates a bit of give in the ground, so I wouldn't mind seeing a drop of rain for his chances.
"He won very well at Newbury on an easier surface and we intended to run him in the Silver Bowl as well, but it was just too dry.
"They are both really nice horses and they both have a chance."
