8st 13lb

J: James McDonald

T: Charles Hills

Capable of taking a hand on his day but hard to pin down in the last 12 months and although he's won on soft, his form took a dark turn when favourite on good to soft at Newmarket in May last time; not one for the risk averse.

T: Marco Botti

Successful in last year's Italian Derby when with a German yard; consistent efforts over 1m6f/2m at Meydan for new stable this year, most recently fourth in Group 2 contest; doesn't shape as if he's crying out for this return to 1m4f; faces a tough assignment on ratings to boot.
