Form & Verdict

2021 saw him win the Irish Derby, Grand Prix de Paris and the St Leger, and finish third when favourite for the Arc; however, last season he was confined to two runs in the summer and took two backward steps, and he found worryingly little when push came to shove at Newbury (6-4 favourite) 13 days ago; now tries headgear in revival bid.

Took well to first-time cheekpieces in the Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket (1m4f, good; Group 2) four weeks ago, bouncing back from a few disappointing efforts and returning to something like his high-class 3yo form; bagged three Group 1 prizes and finished third in the Arc during that solid 2021 campaign; evidently revived, he's respected in the retained headgear.

2021 saw him win the Irish Derby, Grand Prix de Paris and the St Leger, and finish third when favourite for the Arc; however, last season he was confined to two runs in the summer and took two backward steps; goes well on softer than good; the class act in this field, needing to reaffirm that but another crack at the Arc remains connections' hope for him.

Form & Verdict

Won weak 1m4f Group 2 at Meydan on reappearance, able to dictate from the back straight, and his heavy defeat there later in March came when trying 2m, again making the running; it could also be a weak renewal of this race, so he's firmly in calculations.

Won weak 1m4f Group 2 at Meydan on reappearance, able to dictate from the back straight; placed in this race last year and in a Group 2 on the other Newmarket course this May on latest outing, both behind a much shorter-priced stablemate and the same fate seems to await him today.

Form & Verdict

No win back in Europe last year but most of his ability remained, for instance when third of five in this race; tailed off in good handicap at Musselburgh four weeks ago, when good to soft may well have been against him but it's hard to be confident about his prospects today.

Beaten in this race for last two years (third in 2022, fourth in 2023); starts this campaign as a 9yo and his losing sequence is mounting up; although not disgraced in the Stockholm Cup International on last appearance, he's vulnerable against these younger rivals.

Wasn't having the best of seasons but rediscovered his touch when runner-up in a Listed event at Newmarket two months ago (1m4f, good), albeit probably flattered to some extent from a handy position (front two were that way throughout); has a bit to find with the best of these anyway.

Successful in this contest two years ago but has a question mark over current form, having badly underperformed this term, and may be on the wane aged eight; hard to support on recent evidence.

Form & Verdict

Flowered most of last year and returned in good form when third on Kempton AW (1m3f) last month; however, that success has come in handicaps and it would require something of a different order for her to win this.
