Form & Verdict

Star miler who is the world's top-rated turf horse; comfortably justified 1-6 odds in the Queen Anne at Royal Ascot (good to firm) most recently, taking record to 8-8 and completing a Group 1 four-timer; impressive in Group 3 at this meeting last year; still improving judged on the figures (has mostly progressive RPRs) and remains clear top in the pecking order in this division, with 1m2f aspirations the likely next move after today; looks set to extend his winning sequence.

Smart colt who has been campaigned in top French races this season, winning the Poulains at Longchamp then finishing third in the Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly (10.5f) and close fifth in the Prix Jean Prat at Deauville (7f); 2-2 over 1m, both top-level wins, and looks quite interesting back up to this trip despite having something to find on ratings; could well rate higher still; best form on firm and good to soft.

High-class colt who has gained four top-level wins on international soil, most recently in the 2022 Breeders' Cup Mile; appeared to have too much to do in relation to the winner on latest US start (eventually stayed on for second); threatening to win a Group 1 on home soil, having finished second in last year's Sussex Stakes (good to firm) and QEII (good to soft); strong contender.

Form & Verdict

Versatile and high-class filly who surged back to her best in the July Cup at Newmarket (6f, good to firm) last time, bagging her fourth Group 1 win and setting her up perfectly for another crack at this prize, which she won (on soft ground) last year; looks held by Baaeed on two pieces of form (QEII and Lockinge) but the signs suggest she'll do better this time, provided she settles well returned to 1m.

Form & Verdict

Productive 2yo campaign included wins in the Vintage Stakes at this meeting and two Group 1 races in France, but evidently needs the right surface as he's 4-4 on softer than good and just 1-6 on good/firmer; came up well short in the St James's Palace Stakes last month.

Added to his good record on softer than good when resuming winning ways in 7f Haydock Listed race last month; shaped better than the result after meeting trouble when seventh of 12 in the Queen Anne over the straight 1m here (good) at the Royal meeting; big run on the cards if the ground eases.

Suited by the drop back to Group 2 level at Ascot (good to firm) last time, adding to his Doncaster reappearance win (Listed); third in the Lockinge and fourth in the Queen Anne in between, taking Group 1 record to 0-6; comfortably held by Baaeed on those pieces of form.

In top form this month, comfortably winning the Group 3 Superior Mile at Haydock (1m, good) and following up under a penalty in a Listed race at Sandown (1m, soft); he's a leading contender today.

Second in the Group 1 Lockinge at Newbury in May and comfortable winner of a Group 3 at Haydock on latest start; one of the leading contenders on form, even with his penalty, but he has plenty to prove on soft and peak efforts have been on good or firmer.
