Form & Verdict

425,000gns half-brother to multiple 1m Group 1 winner Palace Pier; well backed into 3-1 at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) on recent debut and he ran well to finish second behind an odds-on stablemate; sets a useful standard on that form and he should be more streetwise this time; strong contender.

Yet to race on ground softer than good; gelded prior to excusable Meydan defeat two months ago (endoscopic exam revealed a degree of EIPH which may have affected performance); progressive on British soil and has a record of 3-4 at the Newmarket tracks, including wins in Listed event on this card last year and Bahrain Trophy in July; remains of major interest.

Great Voltigeur entry; half-brother to high-class Palace Pier; unraced on softer than good; 2-4 as 2yo, closing with a markedly improved effort; same again when reappearing in seven-runner Listed race at Newmarket (1m2f) in early May, leading 5f out and winning in clearcut style; faces an extra 3f but highly progressive and all set for Group races.

Form & Verdict

Well-bred colt who holds a Derby entry but he made a low-key start when a well-held fourth of five at Yarmouth (7f, good to firm) three weeks ago; this step up in trip should suit on breeding but he has a lot to find and is probably one for further down the line.

Couple of good efforts at Newmarket this season, runner-up over 1m2f on penultimate start; seemed a non-stayer over 1m4f at Newbury latest; 1-1 on AW (2yo win at Wolverhampton) and looks interesting returned to this sphere; drops back in trip with cheekpieces added.

Good fourth in 3yo handicap at Newmarket (1m, good to soft) in April on reappearance; shaped that day as if he would be suited by this longer trip, which he failed to prove when attempting it at Ascot 15 days ago but it's possible he needed that run after nearly three months off.

22-1 for a C&D novice (good to soft) four weeks ago but he showed clear promise with his second behind a well-backed favourite; recorded a creditable first RPR of 78 in that race and has claims if he can build on that.

Out of a sister to 1m2f-1m4f Group 1 winner Midday and he holds a Derby entry; made a promising start when 5l third of ten behind an impressive Godolphin newcomer at Newmarket (7f, good to firm) last month; should benefit from that experience and he's respected on this step up in trip.

Has yet to build on his promising debut third at Newmarket last summer, taking a good hold in first-time blinkers and weakening to finish a well-held fifth in 1m4f Catterick maiden on his reappearance 37 days ago; visor the headgear of choice this time; still fairly early days but he needs to get his career back on track now handicapping.

Well held at biggish prices in both in his runs, most recently when a fading fourth of 11 at Newbury (6.5f, good to soft) in May; has plenty to find upped to 1m after a break and will be more interesting when switched to nurseries.

Four wins (1m-1m2f) on the Flat last year and he won on his hurdling debut at Wetherby (2m, good) in October; disappointing at Cheltenham in November but that was a tough race and he's had a break since; still looks feasibly treated in this sphere and he needs a close look on return.

J: Jack Quinlan

T: B F Brookhouse

Highly productive run of form on the Flat this year from 1m to 1m2f (pretty useful form) and he continued the good work on hurdling debut at Wetherby (2m, good) where his jumping improved as the race progressed; holes in the form can be picked (runner-up was behind Eagle Prince the time before) but he wasn't remotely troubled; some doubts about him on soft ground.
