Form & Verdict

Runaway wins in novice at Newcastle (1m2f, AW) and handicap at Newbury (1m2f London Gold Cup, good to soft) in the spring; absent all summer but returned with further improvement to win handicap at York (1m2f, good to soft; unraced on firmer) three weeks ago, delivered late; going places and should have a big shout in this if the ground is okay for him.

Last six starts have been at Group 1 level, including a win in the Qipco Champion Stakes at Ascot (1m2f, good to soft) last October; solid efforts in his first two outings after returning in the spring, but off 80 days since finishing fifth of six in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot (1m2f, good); favoured by the race conditions and has winning form on AW (Tapeta), but has never attempted this far before.

1l second in this race last year (good to firm; 10-11 favourite) when caught out by a fine front-running ride on the winner; beat Adayar and My Prospero to win the Champion Stakes over C&D (good to soft) last October and he had to wait for a clear run when close second to Luxembourg in the Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh (10.5f, good) last month; key player.

Form & Verdict

Often front-runner; took very well to first-time blinkers in the 1m1f Cambridgeshire here (good) last September, scoring emphatically; running creditably in the headgear at 1m/1m2f this term and, although he missed a Cambridgeshire repeat bid because of fast ground, he registered his best RPR when running clean away with another handicap at Salisbury (soft) one month ago under 7lb claimer; well worth the go in this Listed race.

Confirmed front-runner who utilised positive tactics to maximum effect in another Listed contest at Goodwood (1m2f, good to soft) in May and only just lost out in a Group 3 at Deauville (1m2f, good to soft) next time; well beaten the last twice (reportedly scoped dirty first time) and needs to get back to something like his best under his 3lb penalty.

Form & Verdict

German-trained 6yo who has been in the form of his life this season and running consistently well, including for two Listed wins at this sort of trip; can front-run, as when short-headed in a Group 3 at Deauville on penultimate outing; probably not far away but conceding weight all round may be tricky.

Form & Verdict

Dual 1m4f novice winner last season; ran well in 1m2f Listed race at Goodwood last month, grabbing second place close home, and still looked in good form when 1m1f was probably too sharp for him here on latest outing; improvement is needed to win this, though.

Form & Verdict

Held up; grand 9yo who's not won since Canadian Grade 1 in 2019 but he's been runner-up seven times since, including on four occasions this term, latest when back in that same Canadian race on latest outing; well capable of emerging in a very prominent finish.
