Form & Verdict

Won the Group 3 Greenham on reappearance last term and, although coming up short, he ran well in Group 1 events over 1m afterwards; drops in class and he's the clear form pick if he resumes in good form.

Couple of notable 7f wins early in career but raced mainly at 1m since; successful three times this term and ran respectably in the Joel Stakes here most recently; not crying out for this drop back in trip; below-par third in this race two years ago.

In top form this month, comfortably winning the Group 3 Superior Mile at Haydock (1m, good) and following up under a penalty in a Listed race at Sandown (1m, soft); he's a leading contender today.

Second in the Group 1 Lockinge at Newbury in May and comfortable winner of a Group 3 at Haydock on latest start; one of the leading contenders on form, even with his penalty, but he has plenty to prove on soft and peak efforts have been on good or firmer.

Form & Verdict

Long absence before two 1m conditions stakes on AW early this year, much the better effort when winning at Newcastle on first occasion (made the running in both); had comparable turf form with an Ascot 1m win on good in 2020; still has work to do against the best of these.

Form & Verdict

Won maiden at Newmarket (1m, good) in September as 2yo; creditable third of eight in Listed race there (1m1f, good) last April but a heavy defeat in the Group 2 Dante at York in May was his only subsequent start; bred to stay beyond 1m; has unfinished business and merits a close look for trainer who won this race with different odds-on favourites in 2016, 2018 and 2019.

Completely tailed off in the Champion Stakes when last seen; won well at Ayr (1m2f Listed) the time before but his closest pursuers were a couple of 9yos and this looks harder; all wins on good ground.
