360,000gns Frankel colt who is a half-brother to Group 1 winner Aclaim (RPR 118); well-backed favourite and he finished well to snatch second at Nottingham (1m2f, good) last month; sets the standard on that eyecatching debut effort and he's open to progress on his second start; major player for yard that won this in 2-19 and 2021.

Form & Verdict
125-1 when 8l fifth of six in Listed race at Newmarket (1m2f, good to firm) in May; 250-1 for the Derby at Epsom (1m4f, good) six weeks ago, soon struggling but he did pass some rivals to finish 15l tenth of 17, which appeared to be useful form; good chance for new yard (has left Stan Moore) if that is taken at face value.

Fourth foal; half-brother to winners Gold Wand (1m4f Listed/1m2f; RPR 108) and Invincible Swagger (7f; 86); dam US Graded-stakes-placed 6f-7f dirt winner; must be held in some regard to be kicking off at this level but it's a huge ask.

Fairly useful form in bumpers and over hurdles; 9-1, made most when fourth of nine in a novice at Doncaster (1m4f, good) 15 days ago on debut under Flat rules; enough in that for him to be considered in the field.

6 yo Gelding

OR:

Form & Verdict
Dug deep to win heavy-ground Kelso bumper on debut in February and, after some very disappointing starts, he was third of six at Cartmel three weeks ago in his second novice hurdle; the latter form was nothing special but he needs a second look.

Hurdles career has not lived up to what he achieved in bumpers; 40-1, close third of 11 in maiden at Pontefract (1m2f, good to firm) 11 days ago on debut under Flat rules, making most, which he needs to build on but it was a satisfactory start in this sphere.
