J: William Buick

Won the Derby (1m4f, good to soft) and King George (1m4f, good to firm) in summer 2021; has not quite hit the same form over 1m2f in his last five starts (better form last autumn than this season) but still brings much the strongest form claims today.

J: William Buick

T: Charlie Appleby

Has raced only five times since winning the Derby (1m4f, good to soft) and King George (here; 1m4f, good to firm) in summer 2021; close second to Bay Bridge in the Champion Stakes over C&D (good to soft) last October on second start back from an absence and reappeared with comfortable win in the Group 3 Gordon Richards Stakes at Newmarket (1m2f, soft) last month; there can be optimism he is as good as ever and another Group 1 win may well be imminent.

Form & Verdict

Progressive gelding who was 3-3 last term, winning a major handicap at York, Group 3 at Haydock (impressively) and Group 2 at Longchamp; versatile ground-wise; overall record is 6-10; seems set for another good season and commands respect despite 5lb penalty.

Useful performer on his day but not in the same league as stablemate Adayar; absent since a couple of below-par efforts at Meydan early last year; faces a stiff assignment and may need the run.

Form & Verdict

Defied top weight in the Lincoln at Doncaster (1m) on seasonal debut, producing a smart handicap performance and taking record on heavy ground to 2-2; that form suggests he's well worth a crack at Group level; effective at 1m2f; possibilities.

J: Paddy Bradley

T: David Menuisier

Ran four times last year and struggled on final three; however, he's run mighty races on his reappearances in each of the last two seasons, defying top weight in this contest 12 months ago (heavy); 4lb higher today; a major player if back to his best on this return to action; tongue-tie goes on.

J: Benoit De La Sayette

T: David Menuisier

Didn't have the ideal passage in this race last October (good to soft; back from break) but he showed what could be done when making up a lot of late ground to win the Lincoln at Doncaster in April (heavy); up 6lb to career-high mark in first handicap since (absent since a Group 3 in May) but this type of race suits him so well, he may yet do even better.
