Form & Verdict

This colt looked a very useful prospect when winning a pair of 7f Chelmsford novices last autumn, merely pushed out to comfortably defy a penalty on the second occasion; entered in the 2000 Guineas and looks capable of making his mark at a higher level.

J: Neil Callan

T: James Tate

Won C&D novices on first two starts and made it 3-3 in Lingfield Listed race (7f again) in March; his form has levelled off since but it is still early days and he should find this a little easier than the 6f Newcastle Group 3 he contested when last seen at the beginning of July.

Won his first three starts, all over 7f on Polytrack, with the third win coming at Listed level; form dipped switched to turf at Newmarket eight weeks ago; drop to sprinting needs to prompt a career best.

Form & Verdict

Useful in a busy juvenile campaign, stepping up to 7f to win a course handicap on his final start in December; reliable performer but suspicion he'll prove vulnerable for win purposes here.

Made a wining AW and handicap debut at Kempton (6f) last autumn; consistent in defeat over that same trip for Marco Botti since but has something to find on form now stepping up in class over a longer trip on his first outing since a 75,000gns sale last month.

Form & Verdict

Impressive at Salisbury (6f) on first outing; respectable form at Listed/Group level later in her 2yo campaign without quite making the expected progress; steps up to 7f for the first time on her reappearance; will need a bit of improvement to trouble stablemate Shouldvebeenaring.

9st 6lb

J: Sam Hitchcott

T: Richard Hannon

Took advantage of a drop in the weights when winning over C&D early last month and has performed at least as well in two starts on turf since, looking unlucky not to win when dead-heating for second at Newmarket (6f, good to firm) nine days ago; only 1lb higher and one to be interested in.

Form & Verdict

Won a 6f Listed race on turf at two and saw off the reopposing Alpha Capture to make a successful return to action in a 6f Southwell conditions race 32 days ago; below best on his previous attempt at 7f but his dam won over this trip and he shapes as if he'll stay; escapes a penalty for his Listed win; leading form claims.

Form & Verdict

Started with comfortable wins in fillies' novice events at Newbury (6f) and Thirsk (7f) last July and advanced her RPR again when third in a small-field Listed race back at Newbury (7f) the following month; limitations seemingly exposed subsequently but heavy ground provides an excuse for her final effort and she returns with her stable among the winners; AW debut.

Switched distances with each run in 2023, creditable fifth of 29 in the Sandringham at Ascot (1m, good to firm) and possibly finding good to soft ground against her over 6f at Goodwood since; return to 7f on good to firm ground can suit and may yet do better.

Won her first two starts (6f and 7f, both good) but found Pattern company beyond her afterwards; fared better when fifth of 29 in the Sandringham Stakes at Royal Ascot (1m, good to firm); drops to 6f for the first time since her debut; handles good to soft but best efforts have come on AW/fast ground; yard going well.

Form & Verdict

Two wins as a 2yo, notably a 6f Listed event at York in October, but he's finished behind the reopposing Shouldvebeenaring off level weights on AW on his last starts and has to concede him 3lb this time; will need to pull out a bit more for first-time blinkers (won in cheekpieces last year) if he's to get the better of his old rival.

Useful 2yo, just touched off in a sales race on this card before winning a York Listed (good to soft); turf form this year bears no resemblance but 23lb lower than on return to grass in July and perhaps discarding regular headgear will have a sweetening effect now down in grade.

6f 2yo Listed winner at York last October and he's well handicapped on that form; however, he's been a long way below that level this summer and a visor made little difference last time; plenty to prove.
