Form & Verdict

Seemed to find 6f on the sharp side on debut; three from three over 7f since, including wins in the Acomb at York (rallied gamely) on good ground and Champagne Stakes at Doncaster (made all, comfortably beat two rivals) on soft; sire Frankel won this contest in 2010 en route to becoming a legend; progressing very well and has a leading chance on ratings.

Front-runner/races prominently; acts on soft; flopped in the Prix Jean Prat when last seen, when the race possibly came too soon after his second to Paddington at Royal Ascot; progressive otherwise and may bounce back but he won a substandard edition of the 2,000 Guineas, with the form having largely worked out disappointingly.

Races prominently and can make the running; can battle too, as he showed when taking care of Indestructible in the Acomb at York and the Champagne on soft ground at Doncaster, before holding on by a head from Royal Scotsman in the Group 1 Dewhurst here on good (unraced on firmer); mishap leaving the stalls at Newbury two weeks ago prevented any assessment of his progress from two to three, but he was one of the top 2yos and may well stay 1m.

Form & Verdict

Has looked a very useful 6f colt, having finished third in the Coventry then won the Richmond; form dipped in the Gimcrack most recently, finishing only fifth; bred to stay 7f but doesn't particularly shape as if he's going to benefit from this extra furlong; may well get outstayed against rivals who are already 7f winners.

Kept up a high level of form last year, winning the Richmond Stakes and getting within a head of Chaldean in the Dewhurst; was too keen in the 2,000 Guineas on his reappearance yet did not really get going until inside the last when a closing third between Hi Royal and Galeron; decent chance of getting his head in front here with that under his belt.

6f Goodwood wins on good to soft and good to firm, latter the Group 2 Richmond in July; form dipped in the Gimcrack but he saved his best for last as a 2yo when coming from off the pace in Group 1 Dewhurst here (7f, good) and getting to Chaldean all the time but beaten a head; on that evidence he does not have that much to find on form and is well worth a go at 1m.

Form & Verdict

Kingman colt who has created a highly favourable impression with his wins in 7f maiden at Sandown (good to firm) and Tattersalls Stakes over C&D (good), both times impressing with his professional manner in the closing stages and striding out nicely; Group 1 prospect who could well give Sir Michael Stoute a belated second Dewhurst win, 36 years after Ajdal in 1986.

Third in the Dewhurst on final 2yo start; missed the early part of this season after suffering a setback but looked very smart when comfortably justifying favouritism in a 1m Newmarket Listed race (good to firm) on his reappearance in July; worn down after travelling strongly in the lead for a long way in a 1m Goodwood Group 3 three weeks later, the soft ground possibly blunting his finishing effort; the Newmarket form has been franked by the second/third and he can resume his progress now.

Absent since his Superlative win at the Newmarket July festival (7f, good to firm) three months ago when narrowly beating Victory Dance, who was about 4l behind Nostrum here on latest outing; faces a tougher assignment in this field, especially as he lacks recent match practice, but he's two from two and open to any amount of further improvement.

Likeable 3yo who met trouble when fourth to Paddington in the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot (1m, good) and posted a personal best when running Kinross to a neck in the Lennox at Goodwood (7f, good to soft) next time; looks the pick of the younger brigade and likely to have a say.
