Form & Verdict

Highly progressive in handicaps last year on various ground; short-headed on reappearance in Group 3 at Newbury (1m4f, good) and another good second in Listed race at York (1m6f, good to firm) last month; needs extra if he's to beat Adayar but he may be best of the rest.

Down the field in Qatar Group 3 in February but much better than that, as evidenced by last July's Group 2 Princess of Wales's win at Newmarket (1m4f, good to firm) and his close second in the Group 3 Cumberland Lodge at Ascot (1m4f, good) in October; should be suited by this stiff 1m2f and stable has won the last two runnings; leading claims if back to his best now in blinkers.

Close third in C&D handicap at last year's Royal meeting; apparently best form when beating the odds-on Adayar (who's not been seen since) in some style to take Group 2 at Newmarket (1m4f, good to firm) this July, albeit with all three rivals clearly below form; not far away on his other 2023 form.

Form & Verdict

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.

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.

Form & Verdict

Won weak 1m4f Group 2 at Meydan on reappearance, able to dictate from the back straight; placed in this race last year and in a Group 2 on the other Newmarket course this May on latest outing, both behind a much shorter-priced stablemate and the same fate seems to await him today.

Form & Verdict

Quirky sort whose best effort came with clearcut Group 3 win at Newbury (1m4f, soft) in April, despite again hanging badly left in latter stages; no show in Group 2 at Royal Ascot (1m4f, good to firm; ran well with the same conditions there one year earlier) on his only run since; Ryan Moore rides him for the first time; major work to do even on best form.

Quirky sort who might have collared Changingoftheguard in the King Edward VII over C&D 12 months ago had he kept a true line; regained the winning thread in Group 3 at Newbury (1m4f, soft) on sole outing this term, despite again hanging badly left in latter stages; this is a harder task.

Had his quirks last term (gelded before final start; wore headgear last four) and going very close in the King Edward VII at Royal Ascot (1m4f) remains clearly his highest rating; first start on softer than good was his respectable third to Max Vega in Group 3 over C&D (heavy) last October; even peak form may not be good enough.
