Bank on Treasury's talent to come to surface

Treasury Devil has failed to live up to early expectations this term but should not be ignored as he makes his first all-weather start at Kempton.

John Gosden's charge looked a promising individual when winning his first two starts as a juvenile, and the Newmarket handler thought enough of him to try Group One company at Longchamp last October.

However, he fell well short of the mark on that occasion on very soft ground and was only mid-division in a soft-ground handicap at Sandown on his reappearance in April.

The Bernardini colt did not run a bad race when third behind Ocean War in Listed company at Newmarket later that month, but something evidently went amiss.

His third behind Jet Away in a conditions event was pleasing enough as he most likely needed the outing. The in-form Gosden switches his attention to the Polytrack for the Play Rainbow Riches At bluesq.com Conditions Stakes and could find the new surface in his favour.

Gabriel's Lad can make it third-time lucky in the Download The Blue Square Bet App Median Auction Maiden Stakes.

After finishing second on his racecourse bow, the Dark Angel gelding filled the same position at Wolverhampton last time.

Watch Chain can go close in the 32RedBet Claiming Stakes at Southwell.

Alan McCabe's charge scored at Yarmouth in May and, while he has struggled since, the four-year-old showed signs of a revival when fourth at this track last time.

Pulsatilla looked pretty green at Redcar last month but her time can come in the 32Red Casino Maiden Stakes.

Third on her racecourse bow, she had a few months off the track before claiming the same position at the seaside venue, but she looks a progressive type.

Bear's Affair was something of a letdown on his jumping bow at Aintree but should fare a lot better in the Ludlow Branch Bluefin Insurance Solutions Beginners' Chase.

Shallow Bay has finished second in each of his three starts over obstacles so far but can go one place better in Taunton's SIS Live Handicap Hurdle.
