Goodwood Cup and Great Voltigeur entry; won handicap/turf debut at Doncaster (14.5f) in June and followed that with another seriously improved piece of form when second to Gregory (beat Klondike time before) in the 1m6f Group 2 Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot, again on good ground; drop back to 1m5f should be fine and there's lots to like about his chance.

Won at Chester in May and ran creditably on four occasions in summer; last few efforts have been less good and he looks more exposed than the other 3yos in this field; chance depends on how well he takes to AW.

Form & Verdict

His win came in a three-runner nursery here (1m, good) last August; upped to 1m4f and cheekpieces enlisted when back-to-form fifth of 11 at York (good to firm) on latest outing, just behind Rathgar; this trip is worth a go but others may have more potential.

Can front-run; ended last season in July but on a high note, winning in good style at Catterick (1m4f, good); well beaten at Epsom (8-1) on reappearance 11 days ago, fading over the last 2f, but may well have needed that run.

This is his first run since last July (gelded since); however, back then he won in good style at Catterick (1m4f, good) and this 4yo could continue to progress; interesting contender on his comeback.

Form & Verdict

First two starts as 2yo (debut was on good to firm) were better than the two which followed; appearing at 1m2f three times as a juvenile smacks of one who's all about stamina (second at Goodwood on first occasion, one place in front of Rathgar) and he therefore needs a second look straight up to 14.5f for this handicap/seasonal debut.

2-2 on Chelmsford Polytrack (1m/1m2f) as 2yo and apparently improved form when fifth of eight at 66-1 in Lingfield Derby Trial (1m4f, AW) on latest outing; something to prove on return to turf but all his three turf runs were on softer than good; not sure to be suited by the longer trip.

Often highly tried for previous stable; runner-up in both outings (hurdle/Flat) for new yard, latest at Epsom (1m4f, good) where he was no match for the winner but ran creditably; possibilities, provided he takes well to first-time hood.

J: Richie McLernon

Dual AW winner (1m/1m2f) and often highly tried this year in Listed and Group races (at up to 1m6f); finished last in his latest handicap but still posted a respectable RPR; bought for 70,000gns in September; should make a hurdler.

Form & Verdict

His three runs were at 1m, 1m2f and 1m4f this spring and he's been improving; 4-9 when he won a maiden at Catterick (good to firm) last time, in a style which suggests he's a stayer, so further improvement should be on its way on this handicap debut.

Steady improvement across his five races, showing this term that he acts on soft ground and on good to firm; on latest start it was in a strong 1m4f handicap at York; stamina looked a strength from an early stage and this trip shouldn't be a problem; unlikely to be far away.
