Form & Verdict
Struck at the first time of asking after a gelding operation when a short-head winner at Nottingham (5f, good; form which has substance); struggled to make an impact in the Palace of Holyroodhouse Stakes at Royal Ascot (20th), but does return to calmer waters from 2lb above that winning mark.

Form & Verdict
Clear and obvious improvement since wind surgery, winning with authority at Thirsk (5f, Class 5, good) on penultimate start; didn't get those all-important breaks when a close fourth to Ventura Express at Beverley subsequently; commands respect on 2lb better terms (1lb higher).

Form & Verdict
Impressive when winning from a 5lb lower mark on seasonal reappearance over C&D in April (the runner-up went on to score at York); has failed to scale those heights since, admittedly was competing in a tough handicap at Epsom (6f) latest; form figures over this C&D read 1241.

Form & Verdict
In blistering form, travelling smoothly throughout and making light work of dropping back to 5f (in first-time cheekpieces; none today) at York last Friday; sits 10lb higher than when landing a Sunday Series Handicap over C&D in June, but is 2lb well-in under a 5lb penalty for that York success; a likeable type.

Hit with a hike in the weights after winning at Ripon (5f, Class 5, good) in May, and was unable to land a blow when 11th of 12 to Ghathanfar at York (5f, good to firm) last week; it's probable he'll find others stronger, including stablemate Ventura Express.

Form & Verdict
Newcastle winner (5f, AW) who is perfectly entitled to take a step forward for his recent C&D comeback (sixth of seven in a Class 5); is easing in the weights and will win more races, but this looks to be a shade too competitive; other days lie ahead.

Form & Verdict
Dual C&D winner; in rock-solid form this calendar year, taking advantage of a handy draw to score narrowly at Beverley (5f, good; 7-2; from a 3lb lower mark) two weeks ago, with Rambuso Creek a luckless fourth; chance on the strength of a fine overall course record; stablemate of James Watt.
