Best on good or firmer; 2021 victories included the Breeders' Cup Turf but there were mixed messages (he looked less than straightforward) in his abbreviated 2022 campaign; 317 days off before below form in his two starts this term but the latest was the 2m4f Gold Cup at Royal Ascot (7f further than he'd gone before) and he showed enough, passing some fading rivals, to suggest he is still very much the one to beat over 2m at this much lower level.

Best on good or firmer; 2021 victories included Breeders' Cup Turf but there were mixed messages (he looked less than straightforward) in his abbreviated 2022 campaign; had clearly the best form going into Newbury Group 3 last month when he came only fourth, admittedly after 317 days off; usually stays on well and his dam won at up to 2m, but it's hard to be confident that this test (7f further than he's gone before) will see him back in the best light.

2021 victories included the Breeders' Cup Turf; while he looked less than straightforward in 2022, two of his placed efforts (Meydan and Belmont Park) last spring were among his best form and he ended that campaign with a Group 2 win over 1m4f at Newmarket in July; not one to trust implicitly but he again brings clearly the best form.

Beaten in this race for last two years (third in 2022, fourth in 2023); starts this campaign as a 9yo and his losing sequence is mounting up; although not disgraced in the Stockholm Cup International on last appearance, he's vulnerable against these younger rivals.

Wasn't having the best of seasons but rediscovered his touch when runner-up in a Listed event at Newmarket two months ago (1m4f, good), albeit probably flattered to some extent from a handy position (front two were that way throughout); has a bit to find with the best of these anyway.

Successful in this contest two years ago but has a question mark over current form, having badly underperformed this term, and may be on the wane aged eight; hard to support on recent evidence.

Still well short of replicating his smart Flat best over hurdles when fourth on December 2022's handicap debut, but finally gets to try further than 2m in this sphere now and has been gelded; won't mind a dryout.

Satisfactory third in handicap at Newmarket (1m4f) in May after a four-month break, but no show from a wide draw at Royal Ascot (1m6f) latest; still capable of smart form last year but very rarely seen over this far (second in 2m Ascot Group 3 in 2019) and looks set for a supporting role.

Smart earlier in his career (including Listed placed); met trouble at a crucial stage when seventh (Teumessias Fox fifth) of 13 in 1m2f Newcastle handicap on his recent AW debut after another long absence, showing enough to suggest a good chunk of his ability remains; fine at 1m4f; no surprise were he to go well.
