Purchased for 480,000gns as a yearling and has looked a colt of immense promise with wins at Navan (5.7f, soft; by 10l) in April and Naas (5f, good) in May, odds-on each time; very strong at the finish on second occasion and that form has been boosted since; should be suited by today's step up in trip and represents a trainer who has won this race a record nine times; likely to take another step forward and he's top of the list.

Son of Mehmas (second to Caravaggio in this race in 2016); bought for 160,000gns at the breeze-ups and looked worth every penny with a startling 12l success on his debut at Ripon (6f, good; 4-1) one month ago, storming clear from over 1f out; may not have had much to beat but he recorded a time significantly quicker than two 3yo winners over the same distance on the same card and needs taking very seriously indeed in this higher grade.

Things haven't gone to plan on last two 6f starts, when fifth of 12 behind Petra Celera at Wolverhampton and fourth at Lingfield on Wednesday; one of several with more to come.

Now 0-8 but he made up a lot of late ground to be a 3l fifth at Wolverhampton (6f) and looks capable of winning off this mark.

0-7; best efforts when making frame three times over 5f on turf, although he did shape better than the result suggests (short of room) when eighth of ten at Newcastle (6f) last week; dropped 3lb since; not discounted.

Form & Verdict

One of three runners for Richard Hannon; favourite on debut and improved on that form when a workmanlike winner of an ordinary race at Lingfield (6f, AW) two weeks ago; may do better still but this is a much sterner task and Kevin Stott has chosen to ride Bucanero Fuerte instead.

Form & Verdict

Quite impressive at Dundalk (5f, AW) on debut and showed a higher level of form when fourth of six in a Group 3 at the Curragh (6f, good); may continue to get better but he has plenty to find with Givemethebeatboys based on the second run.

A 5f course winner on debut in the spring; fourth in a Curragh Group 3 in May before winning at Naas; however, hasn't built on that twice since back in Group 3 company and has a bit to find with some of these.

Form & Verdict

Belied his 18-1 odds in Windsor novice (6f, good to firm) on debut three weeks ago, getting on top near the finish; he'll need some improvement to follow up in this much stronger event, but that form has been boosted since and he's not written off by any means.

Sioux Nation colt who won debut at Windsor (6f, good to firm; led near finish) in May; form has received a few boosts and he's open to major progress; withdrawn (upset in stalls; 11-1 odds) from the Coventry at Royal Ascot last month; clear possibilities if he handles the stalls this time.
