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.

Unbeaten and one of the most exciting horses of the season, having progressed markedly since his debut in June and looked very impressive, notably in Group 3 at Glorious Goodwood where he oozed class and hammered his rivals; had to work harder in the Moulin at Longchamp last time but it was his first Group 1 and he should still have plenty more to offer; has raced on good to firm or good to soft; up-and-coming miler who commands huge respect.

All races on good or quicker ground, apart from when hampered in running in Group 1 here on final 2yo start; tenacious 7f winner on reappearance and although highly tried since, he gave a good account in a Group 1 at Deauville in August before getting a poor run when down in grade at Goodwood in August; big chance if the ground is suitable.

Step up to 1m2f backfired in the Juddmonte International when last seen two months ago; generally progressive otherwise and has had three Group 1 wins, including this year's Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot (heavy) and Sussex Stakes at Goodwood (soft); won the 2020 Cheveley Park on good ground; may be capable of further improvement back at 1m; possibilities.

Half-brother to top-class Kingman; has recorded two comfortable wins over 7f since returning from 15-month absence, defying a big weight in competitive handicap at this track (good to soft) on latest; now 3-4 overall and should have plenty more to offer; likely to be as effective back over 1m; looks a potential Group horse and remains one to follow.

Has raced exclusively against her own sex; tremendously consistent in Group 1 races this season, winning twice (including the 1,000 Guineas); ties in with Alcohol Free on a few pieces of form; unlucky third in the Matron Stakes two starts ago, then finished second in the Sun Chariot; however, judged on ratings she faces a harder task on first run against males.
