Form & Verdict

Has come up well short on his three attempts in Group 1 races; however, 1m4f appeared to stretch him in the Dubai Sheema Classic in March last time, when he ran well for a very long way, and he looked better than ever when easily winning a Group 3 in Saudi Arabia (10.5f, good to firm) in February; not ruled out now back down in trip.

Has raced only five times since winning the Derby (1m4f, good to soft) and King George (here; 1m4f, good to firm) in summer 2021; close second to Bay Bridge in the Champion Stakes over C&D (good to soft) last October on second start back from an absence and reappeared with comfortable win in the Group 3 Gordon Richards Stakes at Newmarket (1m2f, soft) last month; there can be optimism he is as good as ever and another Group 1 win may well be imminent.

Won the Derby (1m4f, good to soft) and King George (1m4f, good to firm) in summer 2021; has not quite hit the same form over 1m2f in his last five starts (better form last autumn than this season) but still brings much the strongest form claims today.

Form & Verdict

Very close third in the St James's Palace Stakes at this meeting last year (1m, good to firm) and suited by the step up to 1m2f the next twice, winning French Group 2 before a close third behind Bay Bridge and Adayar in the Champion Stakes over C&D (good to soft); 1m looked inadequate when creditable fourth in the Lockinge on reappearance; this is just his eighth start and he's open to further improvement, especially now back up in trip; respected.

Hasn't made the expected further progress this season, though the bare form is still respectable, second in York Group 2 (dropped back from Group 1 level) most recently; close third in the 2022 Champion Stakes the last time he raced on softer than good; now returns to Listed grade for first time since winning last year's Heron Stakes; clear top on ratings.

Last six starts have been at Group 1 level, including a win in the Qipco Champion Stakes at Ascot (1m2f, good to soft) last October; solid efforts in his first two outings after returning in the spring, but off 80 days since finishing fifth of six in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot (1m2f, good); favoured by the race conditions and has winning form on AW (Tapeta), but has never attempted this far before.
