Form & Verdict
Group 3 winner at Leopardstown last season (1m4f, good); ran okay on reappearance when beaten just over 7l by Kyprios but failed to back that up over 1m4f last time; return to 1m6f should suit and may not be far away if back to his best.

Form & Verdict
Was in cracking form last summer, including third in Irish Derby; his close fourth behind Princess Zoe in the Sagaro Stakes confirmed his staying credentials although 2m5f Queen Alexandra trip may have been a step too far; will be more at home now back at 1m6f and should be right there if able to overcome the quick turnaround.

1m2f course maiden winner; managed several good efforts in defeat last summer, second in the Queen's Vase, third in the Irish Derby, second in the Grand Prix de Paris; not as good later in the season and unconvincing when winning a minor event at Gowran on reappearance; dropped in class and trip now after Sagaro Stakes fourth.

Form & Verdict
Only the two wins in recent times, both at Down Royal, but he always gives a good account of himself in staying Group races, including when second in this two years ago; wasn't disgraced on seasonal reappearance and should be all the better now with a run under his belt; big player.

Third in 2019 Ascot Gold Cup, and went very close when fourth in that year's Melbourne Cup; often runs well in Group races over staying trips, but only two wins im recent season have been obtained in Listed races at Down Royal; first time over 1m4f since 2018.

Close third in 2m4f Gold Cup here in 2019 and went very close in that year's Melbourne Cup over 2m but not so good in the latter race last year and that's his entire record at 2m+; this step back up in trip needs a very positive response because he needs far better form than any he's produced in 2020 or 2021; came last in the Irish St Leger on latest outing.

Only the one win on the board but has held his form well; ran into Kyprios twice before a disappointing run at Limerick last time; tongue-tie tried today and return to 1m6f should suit but will need to be at his very best.
