Placed in the Dewhurst as a 2yo then won well at Newmarket (1m Listed) on 3yo reappearance; had excuses for short-priced defeats at Glorious Goodwood (soft ground) and York Ebor festival (finished lame) subsequently; still lightly raced and could well resume his progress; significant player.

Third in the Dewhurst on final 2yo start; missed the early part of this season after suffering a setback but looked very smart when comfortably justifying favouritism in a 1m Newmarket Listed race (good to firm) on his reappearance in July; worn down after travelling strongly in the lead for a long way in a 1m Goodwood Group 3 three weeks later, the soft ground possibly blunting his finishing effort; the Newmarket form has been franked by the second/third and he can resume his progress now.

Form & Verdict

Roaring Lion colt; impressive at Yarmouth (1m, good) on debut, then defied a penalty at Doncaster (1m, good to firm) where he looked better than the bare form; promising colt who is interesting upped in grade.

9st 2lb

J: James Doyle

T: Roger Varian

Made his debut only last May but hit the ground running and ended up with three wins from five starts (all 1m) and the form he showed on last three occasions shows he can cut it at Listed/Group level; free-going sort but he battled back to dead-heat for first in Group 3 at Salisbury, so not ruled out over 1m1f; a bit of improvement is needed to win this but he's clearly a candidate for improvement as 4yo.

Impressive at Yarmouth (1m, good) in May and odds-on novice winner at Doncaster (1m, good to firm) in June; no match for hot favourite Nostrum in Listed race at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) five weeks ago but kept on well to beat the other four and it was his best form; better is needed against these older rivals but he's a lightly raced 3yo who should still have potential.

Stablemate of Embesto; showed useful form in handicaps last month, winning easily at Kempton (7f, AW) then close second in the Britannia at Royal Ascot (1m, good to firm); worth a crack at this level.

Well backed when sluicing home in a Kempton handicap two weeks ago but that was his second win over 7f on the AW and not only is he 0-4 on grass, he's also unraced at 1m; when also factoring in the 11lb rise since last time, there are a few doubts to overcome; sold for £260,000 on Monday.

Impressive over 1m on two occasions at novice level, including here; mixed results, including in Group races, since last win but gives the impression this return to 7f is worth exploring; blinkers reapplied (second attempt); may yet fulfil his early promise.

Rattled off a four-timer on turf/AW between March and June last year and despite a hike in the weights has run some fine races in defeat since, including when chasing home Al Marmar over C&D in January; could have been better drawn, but could still go well.

Largely respectable efforts on AW since joining current stable; sole turf success came over C&D (last June) and he ran well in big field at Glorious Goodwood (soft) two starts later; not without a chance.
