J: Sam James

T: K R Burke

Made a winning debut in the Listed Chesham at 2022 Royal Ascot and good efforts in defeat later that year, including third to Auguste Rodin in Group 1 Futurity over C&D (heavy) despite hanging badly right; well beaten in the 2,000 Guineas on 2023 reappearance but showed he retains his ability when fourth in the Jersey at Royal Ascot (7f, good to firm) in June; not seen since but he's capable of playing a prominent role if primed for his return (has been gelded).

J: Clifford Lee

T: K R Burke

Made a winning debut in the Listed Chesham over C&D (good to firm) on this card 12 months ago, then ran creditably in defeat in Group races on his next four starts; soundly beaten in the 2,000 Guineas on reappearance but may have needed the run and he's an each-way possible now back here.

T: K R Burke

7f winner at Royal Ascot (good to firm) on debut and ran well in defeat in four Group races (7f/1m) later as 2yo; visored first time in the Futurity at Doncaster (1m, heavy) on final start and easily dispatched his four rivals on the far side over 2f out, but Auguste Rodin proved much too strong on the near side after this one swerved to join him 1f out; for all those meanderings, it's hard to envisage the tables being turned.

Holloway Boy Career Form And Notable Achievements

Holloway Boy has won one of his five career races to date, with that win coming on debut in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2022. He was a 40/1 outsider that day, but won it cosily under a fine ride from jockey Daniel Tudhope. He has finished in the top three in his other four races, which includes a close second in the Group 2 Vintage Stakes at Goodwood, plus an excellent third in the Group 1 Vertem Futurity Stakes at Doncaster.
