HIGH DEFINITION can deliver the goods to enhance Aidan O'Brien's Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby (3.45) record.

The Ballydoyle maestro has won three of the past four renewals, with 14 victories overall – and the son of Galileo leads this year's pursuit for one more.

Long term ante-post favourite for the Epsom Derby, O'Brien chose to wait for the Curragh Classic, a decision which can be vindicated come post-time.

High Definition looked a star in the making the way he made up ground to scoop the Group 2 Beresford Stakes and the 1m 4f trip is right up his street.

The Dante third was encouraging given his interrupted preparation – and now is his time to shine.

HOCHFELD appeals in Newcastle's William Hill Northumberland Plate, from the yard of Gold Cup-winning trainer Mark Johnston.

Subjectivist reigned supreme in the Royal Ascot feature, when key rival Trueshan sidestepped the clash – and now his stablemate takes him on for the £81,000 first prize.

Hochfeld finished seventh in the Copper Horse Stakes at the meeting, behind reopposing pair Dubious Affair and Galata Bridge.

But a strong case can be made for a reversal of the form, as he came from further back than his usual position over a trip short of his best.

His Chester Cup third, when he had an interrupted passage, shows what he is capable of.

The colours of late owner Sheikh Hamdan al-Maktoum are well represented in Newcastle's Group 3 William Hill Chipchase Stakes (2.20).

TABDEED is fancied to come out on top, given the striking manner of his Newbury success at this level last season.

His course and distance form with Glen Shiel has been well advertised since and he can follow that rival's progress after making a winning start to his campaign.

Each-way value lies with BELLATRIXSA in the Sky Sports Racing SKY 415 Northumberland Vase Handicap (2.55).

Venetia Williams won a race of this class recently with another of her horses, which bodes well for the selection switching codes.

WOVEN is the pick in the highly competitive Williamhill.com Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap (1.45), after shaping as though his turn is near off this mark of late.
