Form & Verdict

Beautifully bred colt who made the perfect start to his career when winning the Wood Ditton on the Rowley Mile (1m, good) in April (form has worked out very well); only workmanlike when following up in a Sandown novice (1m,2f, good to firm; 2-9) the following month but he still looked very much in need of the experience (hung right); likely there is still plenty more to come from him now switched to a handicap; holds entries in the Great Voltigeur, St Leger and the Arc.

Francesco Clemente

9st 5lb

J: Robert Havlin

T: John & Thady Gosden

Unbeaten in three starts as 3yo, producing a smart performance when 9l winner on 1m2f Newmarket handicap debut last July; not seen again until finishing a very promising neck second to King Of Conquest in a Goodwood Listed race (1m2f, good to firm) 24 days ago, not helping his cause by hanging left on the bend; lacks experience but surely has a bigger performance in him and he's weighted to turn the tables on King Of Conquest; has raced only on good/good to firm; cheekpieces are reached for.

J: Frankie Dettori

Has raced only on good/faster; impressively defied top weight in Class 2 handicap on the July course here (1m2f) when last seen, taking record to 3-3; debut win came in the Wood Ditton on this track; looks a potential Group performer; interesting contender.

Form & Verdict

Completed a four-timer at around 1m2f on good and faster ground last summer and has been running well in defeat lately; should appreciate the return to this trip after finishing third of six at Newbury (1m4f, good to firm) eight days ago and looks the main threat to Francesco Clemente.

Form & Verdict

Consistent sort who ran better than it may have looked when fourth of seven at Ripon (1m2f, good) this month after missing the break; well suited by fast ground, but more is needed in order to defy this sort of mark.

Form & Verdict

Losing run now up to 14, though he met plenty of trouble in the Old Newton Cup at Haydock (1m4f, soft; first-time cheekpieces) three weeks ago; back off the same mark as when last successful, but still to prove that fast ground is what he wants.

J: Niall Houlihan

T: Gary Moore

Quite useful on Flat up to 1m4f for the Johnstons; may well turn out to be better in this sphere, having twice won easily in 2m novice races at Newbury either side of a close third at Doncaster; 4-11 when he won by a street last time; tries an extra half mile but respected as a good prospect.

Quite a useful Flat performer at up to 1m4f for Mark and Charlie Johnston; beat a dual previous winner with a nice bit in hand on his hurdling debut here (good; under Niall Houlihan) and looked as though he would follow up at Doncaster before running out of puff late on; sets the standard.
