Form & Verdict

Started last season with wins at Carlisle (6f) and Beverley (7.4f) and he ran creditably when highly tried in his last three 2yo runs, including with placed efforts in Listed (1m) and Group 3 (1m2f) events on last two starts; has a generally progressive profile and he's respected back in trip after six months off; stablemate of Benacre.

Readily beat a couple of these rivals in the Mile Trial at Lingfield (off 6lb lower) four weeks ago, producing a smart handicap performance and taking AW record to 4-4; successful on this card last year and commands major respect back here.

3-3 on AW, the wins gained in Listed company (twice) and a valuable Newcastle handicap on New Year's Day; a 4lb rise for his latest C&D win asks more of him but he's still a major player.

150,000gns Night Of Thunder colt; didn't live up to market expectations on his debut in October but he travelled smoothly when justifying favouritism with plenty in hand here (7f) the following month; has a lot more to do in this company on his return but he was a big improver last time and this 2,000 Guineas entry could take another major step forward at this new trip.

Won a small-field Goodwood maiden (6f) last June; well held in Group 2 events in next two starts but he resumed his progress in final two runs last season, including when landing the Goffs Million at the Curragh (7f, soft) in September; sets the standard on that form and he has shaped as though this new trip should be within range; key player on his reappearance.

Won over 5f/6f last spring; no win in his last five runs but highly tried during that spell and it included a runner-up effort in the Group 2 Mill Reef at Newbury; needs to settle upped 2f on this return but has quite a lot of stamina in his pedigree and peak form puts him firmly in the picture.

Exposed type with a record of 1-10 but he ran well in a Listed race at Lingfield (7f, Polytrack) on his stable debut last month and finished a close third again in a conditions event at Kempton (1m) last time; seems ideally suited by hold-up tactics and could pose a serious threat if this sets up for his closing style.
