Form & Verdict

Has won the last three of his four starts, most recently the King George V Handicap at Royal Ascot (1m4f, good to firm); enjoyed the run of the race in a prominent pitch and he's up 7lb, but the runner-up has since won a Group 3 and this St Leger entry could also have lots more left in the tank.

Got up late on debut at Windsor (1m2f, good to soft) in April and respectable efforts in Listed (1m3f, soft) and Group 3 (1m2f, good to firm) races the next twice; having failed to settle off a steady gallop on those last two runs he could appreciate the likely strong pace in a bigger field on today's handicap debut, and this Golden Horn gelding has potential now upped to 1m4f.

Much-improved form when winning comfortably on handicap debut at Haydock (11.6f, soft) last month, on first start in these blinkers and since being gelded, and followed up under a penalty at Ascot (1m4f, good to firm); had to work pretty hard to beat Teumessias Fox last time and he's another 7lb higher today, but his illustrious pedigree suggests he may keep on improving.

Form & Verdict

Kept on for encouraging third on handicap debut over C&D last month (soft; albeit no match for front two) and improved again when powering clear at Doncaster (14.5f, good to firm) last time; he was the first off the bridle most recently and there's a doubt about this drop back in trip, but a competitive gallop seems likely and would play to his strengths; on the up; respected.
