Successful in similar event here (1m4f) five months ago, beating a subsequent Group 1 scorer and taking Kempton record to 2-2; still has low mileage and /looks the type to improve further this term; should be as effective back at 1m2f; strongly respected, even with 3lb penalty.

Half-brother to Gold Cup winner Courage Mon Ami; skipped clear in a 1m3f novice in July on second AW start; second favourite for Listed race at Windsor (11.4f, good to firm) five weeks ago, racing freely in rear before challenging well over 1f out, finishing a close third of six to Candleford; still had something to learn and could take another step forward.

Similar type to stablemate Lion's Pride, being a Roaring Lion colt who finished second on debut, in his case at Sandown (1m2f) where he was no match for the winner but shaped nicely; major player.

Narrowly beat Naqeeb in Newmarket novice (1m4f, good to soft) in July and followed up in the competitive Melrose Handicap at York (1m6f, good to firm) in August; merely seventh in the St Leger three weeks ago (1m6f, soft; one place behind Chesspiece) but retains potential now back down in grade and could play a leading role if Doncaster hasn't left a mark.

J: Oisin Murphy

T: John & Thady Gosden

Has had only four races; won a Newmarket novice (1m4f, good to soft) in July, pulling well clear with an odds-on runner-up who has since given the form an almighty boost; looked a smart prospect himself when following up in the 13-runner Melrose Handicap at York (1m6f, good to firm) three weeks ago, coming from off the pace to go nearly 2l clear of Denmark (who gave him 4lb); moves into his first Group race but brings plenty of promise.

Form & Verdict

Placed over 1m in both 2yo starts (turf/AW); only sixth of seven (4l behind Middle Earth) over 1m2f at Sandown on reappearance but seemed to need the run; may step up on that effort.

Bolted up on his handicap debut at Glorious Goodwood (1m4f, soft) last August; three lesser runs followed and there's a suspicion that slow ground is important to him, but he returns having been gelded and retains potential.
