Form & Verdict
One-time Derby hope who met his sole defeat in the Chester Vase; has otherwise won three races at Newmarket, most recently producing a very useful performance in 3yo handicap at the July festival (1m2f, good to firm; scored comfortably); should be as effective now back up to 1m4f and looks the type to improve further; respected.

Progressive gelding who went close in 1m4f handicap at Royal Ascot on penultimate start; subsequently landed the Bahrain Trophy at Newmarket (1m5f, good to firm) but had very little to spare in beating Al Qareem by a head; faces a tougher task under 3lb penalty.

Outran his 150-1 odds behind Desert Crown in the Derby last time out, although was a fortunate second as he would have been third if Westover had better luck; subsequently sold out of Andrew Balding's yard for £1,200,000; now goes in a tongue-tie, which replaces usual hood; leading player provided he backs up the Epsom form.

Showed useful form over 7f last term, beating a very good rival at Leicester then running well in a couple of Group 3 races (good/soft); pulled too hard in steadily run Feilden Stakes at Newmarket (1m1f) on reappearance; may well settle better and resume his improvement with hood now fitted.

Form & Verdict
Well-held ninth in the Derby; subsequently impressive in the Glasgow Stakes (1m3f Listed) at Hamilton and that race has thrown up several future Group winners in the last decade; record is now 3-4 and he should have plenty more to offer; latest race was his first start without a hood; highly appealing.

Soundly beaten in the Derby; progressive otherwise and went very close in the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot (1m4f, good to firm; visor applied) later in June, albeit having looked a tricky ride and hung left near the finish (would probably have won if he'd kept straight); has his quirks but brings good form.

Appeared to run well (66-1 fourth) in the Derby but was over 5l behind Hoo Ya Mal and failed to back up that form in the Bahrain Trophy where he finished over 7l behind Deauville Legend and Al Qareem; based on those last two efforts, he has something to find.
