Form & Verdict

7f wins in a novice at Kempton (AW) and the Group 3 Solario at Sandown (good); strode clear in the latter for an emphatic success, which saw him at 8-13 for three-runner Group 2 Champagne at Doncaster four weeks ago but he was never a threat on the soft ground; assuming that the ground was the issue last time, he should be a leading player today.

First four races as 2yo were at 7f, last two 1m; soft ground seemingly against him behind Chaldean at Doncaster; won Group 3s at Sandown and Newmarket either side, latter by a neck from Epictetus who went on to be second to Auguste Rodin at Doncaster; this one's top-level assignment came at the Breeders' Cup (1m, firm) in USA where he couldn't have gone closer, against the O'Brien-trained Victoria Road (reported last month to be going for French Guineas); not quite the star quality of some of these, therefore, but he's battle-hardened and has shown he stays 1m.

Form & Verdict

Kingman half-brother to four winners, notably Jumbly (6f-7f 2yo; RPR 108) and Bullfinch (7f-1m; 106); dam 1m-1m2f winner, including Group 1; 11-1, travelled strongly and always close up when winning 13-runner maiden on the July course here (7f, good to firm) three months ago, leading well over 1f out and gradually asserting; that was useful form on debut and very promising.

Nine of his 11 races have been Group events, career highlight a Group 3 win at Glorious Goodwood (soft) last August when dropped back to 1m; not so hot afterwards, ending last term at 100-1 in top C&D race; gelded since; big chance if he resumes in top form.

Acts on heavy; reappearance win commenced his spell at about 1m2f; proved suited by the drop back to 1m at Glorious Goodwood but has failed to build on that Group 3 success in two subsequent runs; towards the bottom of this pack on the figures.

Debut when coming from last to first in the Chesham at Royal Ascot (7f, good to firm); very nearly followed up in Group 2 at Goodwood (7f, good) and similar form when second of four to today's Dewhurst favourite Nostrum in Group 3 here (again 7f on good); that's among the best form in this and he should stay 1m.

Made a winning debut in the Listed Chesham at 2022 Royal Ascot and good efforts in defeat later that year, including third to Auguste Rodin in Group 1 Futurity over C&D (heavy) despite hanging badly right; well beaten in the 2,000 Guineas on 2023 reappearance but showed he retains his ability when fourth in the Jersey at Royal Ascot (7f, good to firm) in June; not seen since but he's capable of playing a prominent role if primed for his return (has been gelded).

Three races, runner-up on last two occasions in a novice event at Newbury (7f, good) and six-runner Listed contest at Haydock (1m, good to firm); stuck to his task well last time behind Dewhurst contender Naval Power and could find further improvement, but it is needed.

Form & Verdict

Won small-field races on July course at Newmarket for a maiden and nursery; 40-1, below form in a very valuable sales race at the Curragh (soft) two weeks ago; all four races over 7f but he's likely to stay 1m; needs to resume improvement and he's the only one without a Group 1 entry.

260,000gns yearling; by Sea The Stars and first foal of a 1m2f-winning half-sister to 1m-1m2f Group 1 winner Legatissimo; well-backed favourite, tracked leaders and produced over 1f out in 15-runner novice at Newbury (7f, good) three weeks ago, winning by a neck in a good duel; he's bottom of the pack on ratings but from a strong yard and it will be interesting to see if he is again strong in the betting

Second in Newbury novice (1m2f, soft) on reappearance, a race that has worked out extremely well, and he was a close third in a hot handicap there (1m2f, good) last month despite jumping a piece of litter over 2f out; he's 6lb worse off with runner-up Bold Act but could have more left in the tank.

Big-race entries; justified favouritism by a neck in 15-runner novice here (7f, good) on debut last September; last of six in Group 3 at Newmarket (1m, good) in October but back on course when second of five in a hot novice stakes here (1m2f, soft) four weeks ago, behind Military Order who is now the Derby favourite and in front of Chesspiece who boosted the form on Thursday; can prove a major force on this handicap debut.
