Created a favourable impression at Brighton (5.2f, good to firm) on debut, quickening clear inside the final 1f for a ready win; should take well to Epsom and looks potentially useful; interesting.

Made it 2-2 in the valuable Woodcote at Epsom (6f, good to firm) and held his own in what's already looking a strong Coventry at Royal Ascot; that entitles him to persuasive form claims at this level provided he can lay up back to 5f.

Solid performances over 5f on slow ground, scoring gamely at Musselburgh then good third (despite wide draw) in competitive Lily Agnes at Chester; looks likely to handle this track; major contender.

0-10 since his successful debut last April, though he has run creditably in defeat lately as when fourth of seven at Lingfield (6f, Polytrack; first start since being gelded) last month (third has won since); cheekpieces given a go and return to 5f shouldn't be an issue, but others are more persuasive.

Eyecatching third at Goodwood then justified odds-on favouritism with a 6l success at Bath (5.7f, good) 12 days later in May; looks just the type to improve further and make his mark at this better level; respected.

Tough colt whose busy 2yo season included a Vintage Stakes win at Goodwood (Group 2; beat Iberian by 1l); showed he's trained on well with a clearcut success in the Craven Stakes (Group 3) over C&D on reappearance, taking record to 3-10; however, looks vulnerable to numerous promising/classier types in this field and he's comfortably held by City Of Troy on two pieces of form.

Tough and pretty consistent 2yo last season, the highlight his Group 2 Vintage win at Goodwood (7f, good to soft) in August; however, his limitations were exposed subsequently and he was 4l behind third-placed Eben Shaddad when fifth in the Dewhurst here (7f, soft) when last seen; improvement needed.

Runner-up to an impressive winner in maiden at Sandown (7f, good; unraced on softer) in June; couldn't crack it at the fourth attempt when making the running over 6f at Salisbury (good to firm) 12 days later but he's narrowly the form pick in this field and has some experience of this track from his second outing.
