Form & Verdict

Bit frustrating on occasions but took well to first-time blinkers here (1m, good; made all in Group 2) when last seen; now 3-4 at Newmarket; headgear retained today; close second (shade unlucky) in this race 12 months ago and, even with a 3lb penalty this time, should go well again.

Made all in this last year (good) and did likewise on reappearance in another C&D Group 2 in May (good); below par at Royal Ascot and York the last twice and carries a 3lb penalty today, but five runs on the Rowley Mile have yielded four wins and he could bounce back to his best now returned here.

Does most of his racing at 1m and made all in small fields for Newmarket Group 2s last autumn and this spring; has found the higher grade of the Lockinge at Newbury and Queen Anne at Royal Ascot beyond him since; now drops back in distance; enough to prove.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced and largely progressive colt; absent since his close sixth in valuable race in Australia last October; Group 1 form last summer when second in the Jean Prat and the Marois, both at Deauville (7f/1m, good to soft); won on good and soft as a 2yo; major contender.

No win since his 2yo days but that doesn't really tell the story as he's regularly performed well at the very highest level, including when third to Inspiral in the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville (1m) last month; raced only on good or softer so drying ground a slight concern but he's the one to beat on form with his sights lowered.

Lightly raced colt; Newmarket reappearance (behind Mutasaabeq) didn't pan out ideally; this looks more suitable and he's 1-1 at Newbury (soft-ground Group 3 win as a 2yo); good second in two Group 1 races at Deauville (7f/1m, good to soft) last summer; capable of a big run.

Form & Verdict

Found last year's 2,000 Guineas a bit too hot (on turf debut) but generally progressive otherwise; bagged Group 3 honours at Deauville (1m, good) in August and ran creditably in the QEII at Ascot (good to soft) on final outing; may have more to offer this term; possibilities.

Ran some good races in defeat last season prior to Listed win at Newmarket (1m2f, heavy) in November; won a Group 3 in France in 2022 (1m, good); could have a part to play if fully tuned up for this reappearance.

Form & Verdict

Not far behind Checkandchallenge at Newcastle (AW) and Native Trail at the Curragh (Irish 2,000 Guineas) last spring; however, turned in a dismal effort (albeit on heavy ground) on reappearance and he's now 0-7 since debut success; opposed back up in class.
