Irish raider who didn't enjoy the run of the race when midfield (not beaten far) in valuable 18-runner handicap at last week's Galway festival (8.6f, yielding to soft); unlikely to be favoured by drying ground, though (particularly over this shorter trip).

Consistent last year without winning; 5f was too sharp on his comeback run but he was then tailed off at Naas (7f) and behind some of these; cheekpieces added.

Close second at Ascot (7f) last month and was given well-judged ride from off the pace to go one better over same C&D (again on good to soft) a fortnight later; still quite lightly raced for his age and recent 3lb rise does not look excessive.

Group 1 winner in 2018 and proved he retains a big chunk of ability when fifth of 15 in Bunbury Cup at Newmarket (7f, good to soft) last month; unreliable in recent years, though, and younger rivals appeal more.

Course winner at 6f and 7f; had a distinguished career and it's not over yet judged on a hampered fifth of 15 in Bunbury Cup in July (good to soft; handles most ground); fair fifth in a Racing League race at Chepstow since; handicapper cautiously dropping him in the weights; involved.

Both wins in UAE but he ran to a useful level over 7f at Newmarket in April and did well to get as close as he did when a hampered fourth to Bielsa at York in May (6f, good); raced in the disadvantaged group when well adrift here on Thursday; still one to be interested in.

Largely progressive at two and three; however, hasn't done quite so well this year and his July success (7f, soft) came in a lower grade, sharing the spoils; balance of 2023 form suggests he'll come up well short.
