Form & Verdict

Looked promising as a 2yo, winning a 6f novice at Newcastle in October; encouraging reappearance at Salisbury in April (7f, good to firm), after which he underwent wind surgery; not at his best in a messy race at Newmarket last month (6f, good) and he will need a return to his very best to score; after just four starts it would be foolish to rule out progress though.

Won 15 times for the late John Spearing, including three at this track; not found his best form in two runs for this yard but he's down in the weights and drying ground would aid his cause; withdrawn (reluctant to load) here on latest intended start.

Seven times a course winner; 40-1 for last week's stable debut at Windsor (after 232 days off) and could only manage ninth but that hardly tells the story as he was stuck behind a wall of horses for most of the straight; good mark and one to take seriously.

Enjoying a good season, winning three times (including 6f on fast turf), but she wasn't at her best last time and she usually contests weaker races than this.

Form & Verdict

Chased home a subsequent Royal Ascot winner over this trip at Kempton last month (pair well clear); two subsequent 7f runs easy enough to forgive and he's on a good mark; won't need much improvement for the addition of cheekpieces to play a leading role.

Form & Verdict

5f winner here last spring; successful in an AW handicap in January and he has run respectably, albeit without improving, in three subsequent runs; return to 6f might help, as may the fitting of a visor for the first time, but he's not obviously well ahead of his mark.

Seemed a non-stayer over 1m at Saint-Cloud on reappearance and now drops back in trip; made the frame twice over 7f at Newmarket last autumn and has major claims on that form; hood (worn all three runs) is removed.
