Impressively beat Bluelight Bay over C&D (good to soft) on second start, then finished a very solid third in the Coventry at Royal Ascot (6f, good to firm) where he split the subsequent Group 2 winners Persian Force and Blackbeard; leading contender back at the scene of his novice win.

Kept up a high level of form last year, winning the Richmond Stakes and getting within a head of Chaldean in the Dewhurst; was too keen in the 2,000 Guineas on his reappearance yet did not really get going until inside the last when a closing third between Hi Royal and Galeron; decent chance of getting his head in front here with that under his belt.

6f Goodwood wins on good to soft and good to firm, latter the Group 2 Richmond in July; form dipped in the Gimcrack but he saved his best for last as a 2yo when coming from off the pace in Group 1 Dewhurst here (7f, good) and getting to Chaldean all the time but beaten a head; on that evidence he does not have that much to find on form and is well worth a go at 1m.

Dark Angel colt who cost 180,000euros as a yearling; won well at Windsor (6f, good to firm) on debut and looks a useful prospect for yard that has 45% strike-rate with 2yos this term; interesting upped in class.

This 3yo is not obviously ahead of his mark but his two best efforts have come when finishing strongly from the rear, namely a win at Salisbury (1m, good to firm) in June and a creditable second at Sandown (1m, good), and he could come home to good effect over this extra furlong; a possible.

Has a patchy record in his nine starts but he got back on the scoresheet at Salisbury (1m, good to firm) in June and was a creditable second at Sandown (1m, good) last time; goes back up in grade but he's still unexposed at this trip and has claims if he gets a good pace.

Fairly useful form over 5f the last twice, winning at Windsor then sixth in the Super Sprint at Newbury where he did well having raced away from the main group; however, faces a tougher assignment back over 6f.
