Cost 2,000,000euros as a yearling; by Dubawi out of the French 12.5f Group 3 winner Golden Valentine, and a brother to the juvenile scorer Intricacy (8.6f AW; RPR 88); trainer, who won this in 2021 with Albahr, is 2-11 with 2yos in 2023; very interesting.

Won his first two races (7f, good/good to firm) then finished third in hot Listed contest at Ascot (7f, good); returned from a break with comfortable win in the Group 3 Autumn Stakes at Newmarket (1m, soft) a fortnight ago and that improved form makes him a leading player today.

2,000,000euros yearling; all runs at 7f; won his first two (Haydock/Newmarket) without any fuss and the form of his Listed third at Ascot, in which he still looked a work in progress, is seriously hot with five of the first six home subsequently first or second in grades from Listed level to Group 1; strong contender for a yard that's won this four times since 2017.

Well-regarded colt who has had three runs at 7f this summer; was only just caught at Ascot (good to soft; RPR 86) on his second start and he wasn't beaten far in strong maiden at York (good to firm) last month; sets a good standard on his peak form and this step up in trip should suit on pedigree; key player.

Had wind/gelding operations prior to last month's return at Newcastle (1m, AW), and he built upon last year's turf promise to win that maiden easily from the front; needs to transfer that AW improvement back to turf but he's in top hands and has a fine pedigree; in calculations on handicap debut.

All four starts on good or good to firm; 9l winner of a novice at Carlisle (1m) on third start, before last of 12 when 16-1 for Group 3 here (7f) later in September; late foal with useful pedigree and bred more for this trip, so not dismissed.

24,000gns yearling; second foal from a moderate dam (unplaced over 5f-7f, RPR 47), who is admittedly a half-sister to the 2010 Prix De L'Abbaye winner Gilt Edge Girl; appears firmly up against it here on racecourse debut against an array of promising colts.
