Form & Verdict

Won Fairyhouse maiden on debut; ran a belter in a 1m6f Royal Ascot handicap last season; highly tried in subsequent starts last season but made a winning return over 2m here a fortnight ago; the drop to 1m2f is the big question but quite possibly has the class to overcome that factor.

Okita Soushi

J: Ryan Moore

T: Joseph Patrick O’Brien

Only fourth start when third in the 1m6f Copper Horse at this meeting last year (good to firm); well beaten in two top races in his only other handicaps and odds-on when winning two non-handicaps on AW in February, not needing to be near his best; fifth in Group 3 five weeks ago won't be good enough either but he's 2lb lower than this time last year, so case can be made.

Very consistent performer and has hit the crossbar in his last three runs here; never been further than 1m but has shaped like this trip might suit at times.

Finished runner-up in a couple of Premier Handicaps last season, although form dipped towards the end of the campaign; best form has come on turf and he has a tough ask off level weights with a couple of these.

Form & Verdict

Narrowly denied in a C&D maiden in December prior to winning on handicap debut over 1m4f here last month; has a fair bit to find but he's an unexposed sort going the right way.
