Form & Verdict

Raced only on good/firmer; proved suited by the step up to 1m1f in the Strensall Stakes at York (won going away from Finest Sound) seven weeks ago, taking his record this season to 3-5; progressive 3yo colt who commands major respect despite incurring a 3lb penalty.

Form & Verdict

Useful 3yo gelding who has raced just four times and may improve further; recorded a Listed win here (1m2f) in May when having only his second start; close second in warm handicap at Newbury (1m2f, good; back from layoff) latest; one of two major players for Charlie Appleby.

Progressive as an entire and has maintained his good record since being gelded, most recently winning a Listed race at Goodwood (1m2f, good to soft) back from a layoff; Group 3 scorer at Meydan (1m2f, good) in February and has a career strike-rate of 6-9; strong contender.

Won Group 3 at Meydan in February and Listed race at Goodwood (1m2f, good to soft; unraced on soft) in September; form dipped behind Ottoman Fleet in a 1m1f Group 3 here three weeks ago, admittedly racing alone on the near side but a sizeable career best is probably needed to win this.

J: James McDonald

T: George Boughey

Second in this last year; back to best when producing a really smart handicap performance to defy a big weight at the recent Epsom Derby meeting (1m2f, good to firm); cheekpieces worn on that occasion are retained; not long in the excellent George Boughey yard and should make a bold bid to go one place better than 12 months ago.

Retains a good chunk of ability aged seven and beat younger rivals at Windsor (1m2f, good to soft) six weeks ago, recording the fourth Group 3 win of his career; however, a 3lb penalty leaves him a tad vulnerable.
