Form & Verdict

Dual winner of the Stewards' Cup; fine 9-30 record, but limited exposure at stakes level, placed in three of his five ventures; that said, comes strongly into the reckoning on the basis of this year's form linked to top sprinters Highfield Princess and Creative Force, as well as his stablemate Azure Blue who relegated him to third in a Group 2 at York.

Her losing run goes back to a C&D Group 2 win from Gustavus Weston in July 2021; creditable second in the same race last year; fourth at Naas in May on first run for this stable; never looked like making an impact over 5f in the King's Stand 11 days ago, this trip and grade more suitable.
