Form & Verdict
Hasn't threatened this season and finished well beaten in the Britannia at Royal Ascot in June last time out; however, it was a hot renewal of the German 2,000 Guineas in which he was an 8l fourth in May and this course winner is not ruled out now back in calmer waters.

Manor House colt who proved useful last term under the care of Tom Dascombe, making all for ready success in Epsom conditions race (8.5f, good) on final start; now goes in tonuge-tie; has middle-distance winners in his pedigree; should be well primed for this occasion and commands respect.

Form & Verdict
Hold-up horse who won two in a row last month (1m, good to firm) before a very solid fourth of 16 at Goodwood (1m1f, good to firm) last Saturday; he'd probably be fine on slow ground and is a strong candidate.

Form & Verdict
Returned from long layoff to win at York (1m1f, good) in June and again ran really well when third of 15 at Sandown (1m2f, good to firm) last month; shaped in the latter as though he may be suited by this drop back to 1m; ran well on good to soft early in career; firmly in calculations.

Form & Verdict
Fast ground excuses his below-par run at Hamilton last time; prior to that he won over this C&D (good to soft) and he should be fine if good going prevails; could be in the mix.

Form & Verdict
Has won just one of his last 25 starts but he's posted fair performances on fast ground the last twice and there's a good chance he'll improve upon those when back on a slow surface; six visits to Haydock have yielded three wins and he's a player if conditions are in his favour.

Denied a clear run when fourth of 15 off 4lb higher at Epsom (1m, good) in June and has had excuses at York the next twice, namely the 1m2f trip then a slow pace back down to 1m; has dropped back down to his last winning mark and is respected in first-time cheekpieces; versatile ground-wise.
