Form & Verdict

Bolted up on debut at Nottingham (1m, good to soft) last October and again impressed when making it 2-2 in Newcastle novice (1m2f, AW) three weeks ago; he was strong at the finish last time when beating some useful yardsticks and brings considerable potential at this new trip; on the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

This is his eighth start and it's possible that others have greater potential, but he's thrived in handicaps this year and made all at York last month when upped to 1m4f (good; unraced on faster); it's a positive that he's battle-hardened and there's every chance he'll stay; could make a bold bid.

Often used to front-run but hasn't since last July; absent nearly six months before career-best form on last two starts, winning a Listed race at Chester (1m4f, good to soft) and Group 3 at Ascot (1m4f, good); best form last term was in France on officially very soft; probably needs to find a bit extra still but he needs plenty of respect.

Form & Verdict

Two wins from six 2yo starts and no impact when fifth of seven in 1m2f Group 3 at the Curragh on last month's comeback; however, he hinted he may be suited by this stiffer test of stamina and he's the sole runner for Aidan O'Brien who has won this seven times since 2007, so he has to be respected.

Has improved with each of his three starts and comfortably made all in Yarmouth maiden (11.4f, good) three weeks ago; this is considerably tougher but he's in top hands and his dam was a 1m4f Group 1 winner; should continue to progress and it'll be no surprise to see a big run.
