Form & Verdict

Won both 2yo starts (7f/1m, fast ground); hasn't kicked on this year but he hasn't run badly in 1m handicaps the last twice and the time looks right for this step back up in trip (dam won over 1m2f); a possible.

2-2 and improved form since being gelded, with wins at Ascot (1m4f, soft) and Epsom (1m4f, good to firm); he's in a tougher race but did it comfortably last time and a 5lb rise could be lenient.

J: Harry Davies

Won at Chester last July and, having been gelded, never better than when scoring at Ascot (1m4f, soft; acts on good to firm) three weeks ago on reappearance; back up 2lb and should be seriously involved.

Form & Verdict

Made all in Salisbury maiden (1m4f, good to firm) in May on his third start and followed up in Bath handicap (1m2f, good to soft) later that month; respectable sixth of 15 in competitive Sandown handicap (1m2f, good to firm) a fortnight ago when enduring a wide trip and remains open to improvement.

Returned to form with a front-running second of six behind an unexposed Varian-trained winner at York (1m2f, good to firm) last Friday; just 1lb higher here and could make another bold bid.

Form & Verdict

Won Ayr maiden (1m, good) in April on his second start then bumped into subsequent Queen's Vase winner Eldar Eldarov when runner-up at Newcastle (1m2f, AW); down the field on handicap debut at Royal Ascot (1m4f, good to firm) but he's in calmer water today and retains potential; considered.

Underwhelming on first three runs this year but not beaten far in ninth in the Ebor (1m6f, good to firm) a fortnight ago and he may be able to build on that, having come good around this time of year last season.

More potent upped to 1m6f (with Adam Farragher) when cheekpieces were initially enlisted for his last two starts last season, notably for a clearcut win over C&D (good to soft); 8lb higher today and has not fired in the same way in his three starts this term; headgear now removed.

J: Tom Marquand

T: William Haggas

More potent upped to 1m6f when cheekpieces were initially enlisted (they've been kept since) for his last two starts last season; underwhelming in the Northumberland Plate (raced a bit freely) on reappearance and tailed off on heavy going at Goodwood one week ago, but he should stay 2m.

Form & Verdict

Won for Fozzy Stack on his debut last July and this is just his second start for a trainer who does very well with recruits from other yards; however, he's failed to shine on his three outings this year and needs a big turnaround on this first run beyond 1m.
