Form & Verdict
Major promise in 6f maidens, finishing second at this venue then impressively going one better at Newbury (good) where she won in the style of a potential Listed/Group filly; gives the impression she'll cope well with this drop in distance; one to consider.

Recorded a 7l success at York on second outing, then started favourite for the Norfolk at Royal Ascot (good to firm) where he was always handy and ran respectably in second place; this sharper 5f may prove ideal and he remains open to further improvement; major contender.

525,000gns purchase at the Breeze Ups last month and showed he had plenty of ability when seeing off all bar an exciting Godolphin newcomer at Ascot 15 days ago (5f, good; finished clear of the third who had already shown useful form); that effort backed up by the clock and he's the one to beat.

Irish colt who has got better with each start in maidens, most recently looking useful at Navan (5f, good to firm) where he motored clear in the closing stages for a 6l success; changed ownership since; sire Cotai Glory won this contest in 2014 and trainer bagged this prize in 2020; interesting.
