Form & Verdict

Tremendously exciting and progressive miler in his first season last year, making enormous strides in the space of only four months; highly impressive on a few occasions in the summer, then ended the campaign with Group 1 wins in the Moulin at Longchamp and QEII at Ascot; still unbeaten (6-6) and could well have a bucketload more to offer; looks set to mop up all the top 1m races this season.

Form & Verdict

Won the Champagne Stakes as a 2yo and Greenham as a 3yo; took advantage of a good chance at the weights in 1m Listed race at Doncaster seven weeks ago but is very unlikely to follow up; rather exposed at the top table, with Group 1 form figures of 9555.

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

Talented filly who has three Group 1 wins on her CV, including the Coronation Stakes and Sussex Stakes last year; raced freely (not for the first time) when only eighth in the QEII and again ran below best, despite fitting of hood, in Sandown Group 2 on reappearance; on a recovery mission but peak form puts her right in the mix; headgear discarded.

Form & Verdict

Tough and smart filly who held her form well during busy 2yo and 3yo campaigns, winning two Group 1 events (including the 1,000 Guineas) along the way; her fifth to Baaeed in the QEII can be marked up (ended up with too much to do); justified favouritism in Curragh Group 3 on reappearance; given her overall record, holds solid claims back up in class.
