Form & Verdict
Improved to win a maiden at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) in April; bred to relish 1m4f+ and so it proved when beaten a head in 19-runner race on handicap debut at Royal Ascot (1m4f, good to firm) three weeks ago; should stay and still have potential but improvement is needed.

Form & Verdict
Front-runner; thrived in handicaps this spring; ran creditably when fourth of 12 in 1m6f Group 2 at Royal Ascot (good to firm; Zechariah about 5l ahead) three weeks ago, particularly given how hard he went up front; tough and game but needs to resume improvement.

Form & Verdict
Looked highly strung before his win in a Newbury conditions stakes on return; good second in Lingfield Derby Trial (11.6f, good to firm) in May, form which makes him a leading player in this race, but he needs to bounce back from a poor show when 11-1 in the Derby; gelded since and the same move paid immediate dividends when Yibir won this for same stable last year.

Dubawi colt who has form figures of 311, the latest performance in a conditions race at Newbury (1m2f, good) that his stablemate Hurricane Lane won last year en route to bagging two Classics; like other similar stablemate Adayar, he won a soft-ground maiden at Nottingham as a 2yo; all the signs are highly positive for this improving sort; respected.

Form & Verdict
Had useful form as a 2yo and this spring but took it to another level in 1m6f Group 2 at Royal Ascot (good to firm; 20-1) three weeks ago, grabbing the lead from Al Qareem 2f out but caught on the line; judged on that another very bold show is on it way.

Form & Verdict
Withdrawn once in May when getting upset in the stalls; had smart 2yo form here (on good to firm) and he was back at that level when about 8l fourth of 17 in the Derby at Epsom (1m4f, good; 66-1) on latest outing, keeping on well from towards the rear; big shout on that.

Form & Verdict
Trained as 2yo by Kevin Ryan; ran well when second of five on handicap/stable debut at Bath (1m2f) in May; there's stamina on the dam's side and he probably stayed 1m6f when seventh of 12 in Group 2 at Royal Ascot (good to firm), coming from last on home turn, but Zechariah and Al Qareem were ahead; cheekpieces enlisted; big improvement is needed.

Trained as a 2yo by Kevin Ryan, winning a 7f novice at Ayr (good to firm) before seeming rather out of his depth in a Group 3 won by Guineas hero Coroebus at Ascot; concedes weight all round on his handicap debut but this longer trip should suit him well and he's not ruled out for his new yard.
