Form & Verdict

Surprise winner of Breeders' Cup Mile in 2020 but showed that it was no fluke with some classy runs last year, including when winning this with a penalty; doesn't have that to carry this time and should have come on from his respectable Queen Anne Stakes return; the one to beat.

Form & Verdict

Classy juvenile was runner-up in the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes here; made a bright start to this campaign when winning a Leopardstown Listed over 7f before being too keen over 1m; bounced back to win a Leopardstown Group 3 back over 7f and is a big player here.

Form & Verdict

Decent sort won his sixth race when taking a Fairyhouse conditions event in May and bettered that with a runner-up effort in a Listed race here last time; both over 6f but stays this trip; has a bit to find, though.

Four-time winner at this venue but not for two years; some decent efforts off declining mark of late but more needed and this trip possibly on the sharp side nowadays.

Three-time C&D winner; good run when beaten 1l over 6f here 12 days ago; shaped like the step back up in trip may help and one to consider from a good mark.

Form & Verdict

Six-time winner is at his best around Leopardstown, winning twice at Group level there last year; hasn't been at his best in two starts there this term but yard is in better form now; bit to prove around here.
