Form & Verdict

Won a maiden over 1m2f here earlier in the season before being an unlucky third in the Group 3 Gallinule Stakes (1m2f); raced freely when second over 1m4f here next time before being outclassed and outstayed in Irish Derby; this trip should suit.

Form & Verdict

Both wins have come on AW, including a Group 3 at Dundalk last September; has posted several solid runs in defeat since on Turf but his 3lb penalty makes life more difficult; should run his race and be involved again.

Form & Verdict

Won this race in 2020 and has run plenty of good races in defeat since, including in Group 1 company; however, not at his best this term and was poor over C&D last time, so has to return to former level; cheekpieces tried.

Classy performer in his pomp (Group 3 winner, Group 2 runner-up); not near his best so far this term and while a return to form would give him leading claims, his best form is over further than this.

Won his third race when taking a Listed event here over 1m2f last autumn; best run since was when second to a resurgent Cadillac over this C&D last month and is capable of another big run.

Belatedly regained the winning thread at Wolverhampton (upped to 1m6f; off 4lb lower) this month, benefiting from drop to Class 4; faces a stiffer assignment back up two grades and, with strike-rate only 2-23, looks unlikely to follow up.

A fair effort when fifth of 11 here (1m3f) last month (just behind Valsad), but losing run up to 17 and another 1lb drop not enough to tempt.
