In good form after returning in May including wins at Newmarket (1m, soft) and Chester (7.7f, good), but out of the frame in his last three starts; may not want the ground to dry out too much and probably needs further than this now in any case.

Progressive against his own age group, winning two of his first three starts (1m, soft/about 7f, good) before having a troubled run in the Britannia at Royal Ascot; however, he wasn't the same horse at Newmarket in July and an easy 7f may be a bare minimum for him.

Form & Verdict

Promising colt on artificial surfaces, with record 2-3, the wins gained at Meydan (7f, dirt) and Chelmsford (1m, AW; debut for Marco Botti); going into the unknown off top weight in a competitive handicap on turf but he's too unexposed to be dismissed.

Likeable pacesetter who gained her most notable success in the Great St Wilfrid at Ripon (6f, good to soft) last August and ran just as well when beaten a head in fillies' Listed race at Newmarket (6f, soft) in October; more required against some classy males here but she may not have reached her ceiling just yet; stablemate of Glorious Angel.

Good second at Haydock in July (1m, heavy; made the running) and he had excuses at York last time (slipped at the start in a Class 3); not fully exposed but lower draw would have been preferable and he may need more emphasis on stamina than 7f here.

Well beaten on final 3yo start and he had only one rival to beat for his sole win in a 1m Brighton maiden, but he has C&D form and a second of ten in a Goodwood handicap (1m, soft) in October is quite encouraging form for this level; gelded since last seen; in the mix.

Off the mark in two-runner race at Brighton in September and things haven't gone to plan in two 1m runs since, had no luck in running at Newbury (heavy) and again pulled hard when seeing too much daylight at Goodwood since; the return to 7f, for the first time on turf, could be ideal; involved.
