Dante, Derby and King Edward VII entry; third of five in Group 2 at Leopardstown (1m, soft) on final 2yo start; resumed with further improvement against useful sorts in a conditions event at Cork (1m2f, good to yielding) three weeks ago, having to be switched just inside the final 2f before sealing the issue in tidy style; the form pick and he looks promising.

Useful form on reappearance; built on that when winning his handicap debut at Newbury (1m2f, good; unraced on firmer) one month later, rather scraping home and in a bunched finish but that was the London Gold Cup which is so often a strong race; up 5lb but 1m4f is calling loudly now (his dam is sister to the 2018 Oaks winner) and he can make further improvement.

Breeze-up purchase had a barrier trial under his belt when making a winning debut, justifying odds-on favouritism, at Listowel (1m, soft); runner-up won next time and is now rated 83; scopey sort holds an Irish Guineas entry and is another that, on pedigree, should get this trip.

Travelled well and found plenty to win the competitive Boodles Juvenile Handicap at the Cheltenham Festival (2m, heavy) in March; there was lots to like about that performance and an 8lb rise may not stop this very lightly raced 4yo; showed promise on good to yielding ground on the Flat.

Just two Flat runs, winning the first over 1m; perhaps unsuited by the heavy ground at Leopardstown over Christmas and eyecatching efforts on either side of that, latterly emerging from well off the pace to make the frame at Punchestown (soft); strong suspicion there's a lot more in his locker and that this mark may underestimate him; has long been touted as a likely type for this.

Improved for front-running when off the mark on fourth start at the Curragh (1m, yielding to soft) in September; missed the start when never landing a blow in Group 3 at same venue; Irish Oaks entrant is another who is stepping up in trip on seasonal bow.

Stepped up from winning a middle-distance Sligo handicap to landing a Listed race at Longchamp in August; way below her best in a Fairyhouse Group 3 in September; ignored in the market as a stable outsider at Cork and finished last of 12, with four of these rivals in front of her.
