Form & Verdict

350,000gns son of Kingman; unruly at the post before withdrawn from intended debut and sported a hood at Sandown (7f, good), where he again lacked focus at the start (conceded lengths) before making eyecatching late headway into fifth (beaten under 2l); if knowing more this time he might well be the answer.

One of two runners for Charlie Appleby; Kingman colt who cost 350,000gns as yearling; did well to get so close having blown the start on debut, then broke better and made all at Ascot (7f, good) in September; should progress further, provided he's as effective with the hood (worn both starts) discarded.

Travelled as well as anything before outpointed by a Godolphin newcomer (disappointing favourite in the Acomb next time) over 7f at Newmarket four weeks ago (good to firm); he was easy to back at 20-1 and can take a forward step here.

Looked a winner in waiting when second in 7f maidens at Newmarket (good to firm) and Ascot (good; Back See Daa over 5l behind in fourth); failed to land short odds at Haydock on final start but will have a big say if bouncing back to the earlier form on his reappearance after a gelding operation.

In good form after returning in May including wins at Newmarket (1m, soft) and Chester (7.7f, good), but out of the frame in his last three starts; may not want the ground to dry out too much and probably needs further than this now in any case.

Progressive against his own age group, winning two of his first three starts (1m, soft/about 7f, good) before having a troubled run in the Britannia at Royal Ascot; however, he wasn't the same horse at Newmarket in July and an easy 7f may be a bare minimum for him.

Ballydoyle colt whose impressive sequence of wins included the Irish 1,000 Guineas, St James's Palace, Eclipse and Sussex; combination of faster ground (good to firm) and the effects of a very busy campaign can excuse his defeat in the International at York when last seen (unable to complete an eight-timer but still ran creditably on the figures); acts on heavy; comes back fresh following a deserved two-month break and remains worthy of great respect; top on ratings.

Unsuited by soft ground last time out but a solid contender in 1m4f turf handicaps previously; higher in the weights than when winning his latest two AW races, over 1m4f at Lingfield, but the manner of the most recent win suggests the return to AW will be a good move; respected.

Hinted at ability in his three 2yo runs and duly took a step forward on his handicap debut/reappearance/first run after being gelded when gamely landing a C&D event 16 days ago; still looked to be learning on the job there and a 3lb rise may underestimate him.
