Form & Verdict

Disappointing favourite in the Group 2 Celebration Mile last time but that was his second modest effort in that race and it could be he doesn't fancy Goodwood; strong contender judged on his previous near-misses at this level and should be in the thick of it if taking to the first-time headgear.

Made all in this last year (good) and did likewise on reappearance in another C&D Group 2 in May (good); below par at Royal Ascot and York the last twice and carries a 3lb penalty today, but five runs on the Rowley Mile have yielded four wins and he could bounce back to his best now returned here.

Form & Verdict

Makes belated reappearance with his yard going extremely well; after winning a Listed race at Chester (1m2f, good to soft) in May of last year he contested two Group 1s before bumping into Baaeed in a Group 3 at Goodwood that summer; final defeat last August (another Group 3) is not so easily forgiven but he needs a second look at this level given his peak form.

Below par in a couple of Listed races at the start of the summer but back on track at the first time of asking for new trainer Karl Burke when going down by only a neck in a Haydock Group 3 (extended 1m2f, good to soft) a fortnight ago, collared in the final strides after travelling strongly and quickening to the front inside the final furlong; this shorter trip looks a help if anything (peak RPR achieved over 1m1f) and he looks the chief threat to Nostrum.

Form & Verdict

Was smart for Roger Charlton but has been a revelation for this yard and continued the good work with back-to-back Group 3 honours at Salisbury (good to firm) and Deauville (good); sights are raised to Group 2 level for the first time here but he has the highest BHA mark of these, so has earned the right.

Prone to underperforming now and again but smart when on song and impressed with how she went from last to first in a Group 3 for fillies at Sandown a month ago (1m, good); those tactics might be harder to execute here but she's likely to go very well if as good again.

Won a Group 3 at Sandown (1m, good) in August last year and often there or thereabouts in Pattern company, as when just beaten in a Listed contest at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) last time; handles Polytrack, but she isn't the easiest and a couple of the others are more convincing.

Admirably consistent filly who is hard as nails and ran another excellent race against male opposition at Deauville most recently; however, she's always come up short when sent higher than Group 3 level and she's probably vulnerable once more.

Three-time Group 3 winner on turf, including twice over 7f/1m in the summer; again has appeared to find Group 2 company a bit too warm in her last two outings, but a player on these terms back at Listed level even under her penalty; ran well on Polytrack on her racecourse debut.

Has only won a Newbury novice but that's because of an ambitious schedule, having been confined to nine successive Group races (two Group 1s); has something to find on the figures with most of these.
