T: Charlie Appleby

Soft-ground winner on debut, campaigned on good/firmer since; hooded at Newmarket on last three starts, winning the Craven then short-headed in the 2,000 Guineas and third to Benbatl in the Joel (hampered then kept on); may well come on for the last run, which followed a layoff; open to further progress and looks interesting despite removal of the headgear.

Had been headstrong and this 3yo proved suited by this hood in spring, winning the Group 3 Craven before being short-headed in the 2,000 Guineas, both over C&D on good to firm ground; suffered a setback shortly after and makes his return to action today, but has leading claims if at his best; has also won on soft ground here.

Runner-up in this race last year on his reappearance and he landed a Listed win at Pontefract in July; he's 4lb higher than 12 months ago but is clearly suited by the demands of this race and he's an each-way contender.

Below-par fourth in the Earl Of Sefton Stakes on reappearance, spoiling his otherwise good record first time out; not certain to improve much on that effort and he's yet to win away from Newmarket but best form, including Group 3 efforts, puts him right in the picture.

Ran creditably in Group 3 races the last twice; useful form in two starts over C&D, finishing third in this race last year and winning a notable handicap in May; however, faces a harder task off current mark.

Absent since proving too headstrong at Sandown last July, taking turf record to 0-4; may settle better with hood now fitted and he looks an interesting contender back on AW; has form figures of 1113 (with progressive RPRs) in this sphere, most recently third in last year's Winter Derby.

Never dangerous when joint-favourite for the Cambridgeshire on last appearance; steadily progressive otherwise and was impressive in Ayr handicap nine days earlier; however, has something to find on these terms with cheekpieces back on (visored the last twice).

Largely in decent form for new yard this year, including a win in the Carlisle Bell; bounded clear for an impressive success in second-time visor at Ayr (1m2f, good to firm) last week; very well treated under a penalty (future mark 9lb higher) and has to be feared.

Smart and consistent in South Africa, winning Grade 2 and Grade 3 contests and placed three times at Grade 1 level; respected on that form and, while he folded tamely in the Earl Of Sefton (behind Bell Rock) on British debut, may do better with that outing under his belt.
