Form & Verdict

Very green and yet still managed to justify favouritism in a 1m2f maiden at the Curragh (good) three weeks ago; this represents a far stiffer test but he's promising.

Not the easiest to place given his rating and has a strike-rate of 4-40; not at his best in a Curragh handicap last time and that was only 22 days ago.

Nicely progressive in his first season as a 3yo and should strip fitter for his Cork run (1m2f; handicap debut), though will need to if he's to trouble the best of these; blinkers added.

Looked very useful when winning as a 3yo in Ireland but has not shown a great deal for current stable since the autumn (six runs); cheekpieces removed after one use; needs to find a way to stop the rot.

Form & Verdict

Ran twice in these colours as a 2yo when trained by Jean-Claude Rouget, winning over 1m at Deauville before posting an RPR of 95 when the clear second behind a filly who went on to finish third in the French Oaks; long-time absent but powerful owners have kept the faith; interesting to see gauge market confidence with the trainer also running Trustyourinstinct.

1m turf win in France as 2yo on debut but missed 2022 and has not made a significant impact in handicaps in Ireland or Britain since; back up in trip and a case can be made but it's none too convincing.

Form & Verdict

Only 1-12 but placed at the highest level during her first season and finished runner-up in a big-field Listed event at three; not at her best so far this term on softish ground and stamina for this trip isn't entirely copperbottomed but by no means dismissed given the flashes of form that she has.

Grand veteran seeking a tenth career success and he's been running his usual solid races in defeat this season; does look vulnerable on these terms with improvers lurking.
