Form & Verdict

Turned over at odds-on in Group 3 Abernant at Newmarket on last month's reappearance (behind Commanche Falls); however, it wasn't a bad performance and he could improve for it; holds leading claims judged on last year's efforts in Group/Grade 1 sprints.

Comfortably justified favouritism in conditions race at Haydock (6f, good to soft) on Saturday, reversing last month's Newmarket placings with Commanche Falls and recording first win since landing Ascot Group 1 in 2021; smart performer who commands respect back up in grade.

T: Charlie Appleby

Group 1 winner as 3yo (6f, good to soft) who raced only at that level in 2022, failing to win but running some excellent races in defeat; not that fussed about the state of the ground and should have plenty going for him now racing in a Group 3 for the first time in nearly two years.

Form & Verdict

Listed winner at Newbury last May and, having been gelded, he reappeared with a solid fourth in the Group 3 Abernant at Newmarket last month; however, he was behind Commanche Falls and Creative Force last time and will need a career-best if he is to turn the tables here.

Tiber Flow

9st 9lb

J: Tom Marquand

T: William Haggas

Absent since Group 3 runs last July, winning at Newcastle (6f) then third at Sandown (5f); return to this trip looks ideal but he is more productive on AW, being 4-5 in that sphere compared to just 1-7 on turf; fourth in this race last year.

Justified favouritism in similar event over 6f at Newcastle last Saturday, taking AW record to 4-5; only 1-6 on turf, incurs 3lb penalty back in this sphere and has a question mark over the drop in trip.

Form & Verdict

Better than ever last season, including when winning the Stewards' Cup for the second year in a row, and he was back on song when going close in the Group 3 Abernant at Newmarket last month (Creative Force third); big task to defy 4lb penalty in this field but he can produce another bold show.

Dual winner of the Stewards' Cup and opened his Group account at Newbury (good to soft) in the middle of his consistent 2023 campaign; close second in this race (good) 12 months ago and has solid claims.

Dual winner of the Stewards' Cup; third in this race last year; better than ever this season, having won two Listed races and a Group 3, all since July; defied top weight at York (6f, good; beat Juan Les Pins) most recently and commands respect in current form.

Runner-up at 150-1 in Group 1 Champions Sprint at Ascot (6f, good to soft) last October in second-time cheekpieces; he needs prove that level of performance was no one-off but he's entitled to respect on his return.

Twice runner-up at Group 1 level, including in last year's July Cup; lacked consistency otherwise in 2023 but he's a leading player on ratings in this field; luckless fourth, having met traffic issues, in this contest in 2022.

Chased home Kinross when 150-1 for this race last year and showed that was no fluke with a second Group 1 silver medal in this season's July Cup (28-1; Kinross third and Art Power fourth); needs to put a poor run in Haydock's Sprint Cup behind him but he's clearly a contender if performing to his best; unraced on extremes of going.
