Form & Verdict

340,000gns Camelot colt; never involved at Yarmouth (7f, good) on his debut in September but he took a major step forward when runner-up here (8.3f, soft; 5-2 favourite) the following month; open to more progress upped to 1m2f on his return and he's a key player for in-form yard.

Improved 3yo, winning 1m2f Nottingham maiden on return and best form when leading home his group at Salisbury in June (1m4f), winner was a class-dropper who raced alone; however, he dropped right out at Goodwood after and needs to redeem himself with tongue-tie added on AW debut.

Made all in five-runner maiden at Nottingham (1m2f, soft) in April on reappearance, by a nose as 5-4 favourite; creditable third of six on handicap debut at Newbury (1m2f, good to firm) three weeks ago and the impressive winner followed up at Royal Ascot; now worth a go at 1m4f.

Good ground saw his worst performance (second start) and he's unraced on firmer; won 1m2f novice at Newcastle (AW) in June and close fourth of six on handicap debut at Newmarket (1m4f) 12 days ago; respected on that form and he shaped as if he'd stay 1m6f.

Modest form when fourth of five, eased once beaten, in 1m2f maiden at Nottingham last April; gelded since; presumably thought capable of better, having held a Derby entry at the time of that debut.

Questionable what he actually achieved behind the now much-improved Sweet William (now BHA-rated 103) in a 1m4f novice at Doncaster (good to firm; first-time cheekpieces) but clearly of strong interest with nothing of that calibre to contend with on his handicap debut.

Showed some promise for Sean Woods last year (once on soft ground) but has struggled on all four starts for current stable (7f-1m2f) and it takes a big leap of faith to support him here.

Seven-race maiden who hinted at early promise for Sean Woods, but has failed to beat a rival in three outings for this yard; best to look elsewhere.
