TEPMOKEA deserves a change of fortune and is fancied to uphold last week's Epsom form with Marching Time and Union Island. The Godolphin-owned Sovereign Remedy is going the right way and, as he is open to any amount of improvement, he may be a bigger threat than the selection's old rivals on this occasion. The mount of Frankie Dettori won a maiden in good style at Nottingham in May - admittedly the form of which leaves a little to be desired. However, the son of Elusive Quality could do no more than win, so is entitled to take his chance in this better grade. However, Tepmokea has also made excellent progress and, as he already holds a number of today's rivals on previous form; he is in with a live shout of gaining a deserved success from the foot of the weights.
