9st 2lb

J: William Buick

Stoutly bred and from a fine family; the winner of four of six starts and in his element with testing conditions, as when grinding out his win in the Group 1 Futurity at Doncaster (1m) in October, when God's Window, Deira Mile and Dancing Gemini were third, fourth and fifth; lacked finishing pace when a remote runner-up in the Group 2 Dante at York (about 1m2f, good) on his first run back and today's extra distance will suit, but a more galloping track than this could have been a better option (the Irish Derby was originally the plan) and considerable rain would be ideal.

Always prominent in his first four races, winning three including comfortably in Group 3 at Newmarket (1m, soft); that saw him start 5-4 favourite for Group 1 Futurity at Doncaster (1m, heavy) two weeks later in October and, having made most, he rallied strongly to regain control through the final 1f; looks sure to be well suited by 1m2f+; brings the best form with those last two runs but they were in the mud.

T: Charlie Appleby

Won his first two races (7f, good/good to firm) then finished third in hot Listed contest at Ascot (7f, good); returned from a break with comfortable win in the Group 3 Autumn Stakes at Newmarket (1m, soft) a fortnight ago and that improved form makes him a leading player today.

2,000,000euros yearling; all runs at 7f; won his first two (Haydock/Newmarket) without any fuss and the form of his Listed third at Ascot, in which he still looked a work in progress, is seriously hot with five of the first six home subsequently first or second in grades from Listed level to Group 1; strong contender for a yard that's won this four times since 2017.
