Form & Verdict

Has won her last four starts, doing it extremely easily from the front in small fields at Epsom (1m4f, good to firm) the last twice; has been hit hard by the handicapper but it remains to be seen where the ceiling of her ability lies, and she's respected.

Big majority of her career has been in handicaps, with plenty of success, but she ended last season on a new high when scoring by 4l from the front in a Group 3 at Saint-Cloud (1m6f, very soft); needs to find extra again and going beyond 1m6f is also something new.

Form & Verdict

Ran well in May in his first two handicaps (1m/1m2f, good to firm) before making all at Yarmouth (1m1f, good to soft); soft ground may not have suited when below par at Haydock last time and he's hinted that this sort of trip may suit; not ruled out.

Improved form the last twice to win at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) and Sandown (1m2f, good to firm); he benefited from an easy lead last time but had 3l to spare and this thriving colt is entitled to respect up 6lb.

Won both 2yo starts (7f/1m, fast ground) and improved for the step up in trip to win at Chester (10.3f, good) a fortnight ago under Harry Davies; didn't have much to spare in that small field and is up 4lb but wasn't stopping at the line and today's extra yardage could prompt further progress.

In and out this term and soundly beaten at Haydock last time, but the soft ground may not have suited; prior to that he was a clear second to Youthful King at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) and he's now 9lb better off with that rival, who beat him by about 1l and followed up at Sandown; interesting.

Built on previous promise, in a big way, when bolting up back on turf at Yarmouth (1m2f, good to firm) last Thursday; that was just a maiden handicap and this race is far more competitive, but he's 6lb ahead of the handicapper under a 6lb penalty and the extra yardage should suit; leading player.
