Has Irish Group 1 entry in September; 4-1 for seven-runner novice at Haydock (7f, good to firm) five weeks ago and was always prominent before finding an Appleby-trained favourite much too good; that was a solid start and looks the best form in this line-up.

Well-regarded colt who has had three runs at 7f this summer; was only just caught at Ascot (good to soft; RPR 86) on his second start and he wasn't beaten far in strong maiden at York (good to firm) last month; sets a good standard on his peak form and this step up in trip should suit on pedigree; key player.
