Form & Verdict

Raced only at 6f; rounded off his 2yo campaign with an AW novice win and returned to win a Windsor handicap (good to firm) in June; his subsequent sixth came in a traditionally strong 6f 3yo handicap at the Newmarket July meeting and the form has already been boosted; tends to race freely (wears hood) but shapes as if he'll stay 7f and makes obvious appeal taking on largely much more exposed opposition.

Won a novice here (6f) a year ago and twice successful on turf (6f/7f) this year, but never got a run when in rear at Ascot (6f, good) last month; may yet be capable of more back on the AW and could play a part provided the outside stall isn't too much of a problem;

Free-going gelding who's gone well fresh a few times in the past and did so again on his 7f Wolverhampton comeback, when always well positioned from a handy stall (third win over that C&D); is fine on turf and looks a likely player up just 1lb.

Form & Verdict

Won small-field 5f events at Salisbury and Musselburgh (both good ground) at the start of his 2yo season but has rarely threatened since; beaten just over 8l when fourth on his 5f Redcar reappearance and down the field in a Royal Ascot handicap (5f again) in a first-time visor since; the cheekpieces he wore three times last year are back in place now; has a fair bit to prove stepping up 2f in trip.

Won his first two starts for Alice Haynes as a 2yo; no win since then but he appeared to retain ability in four 7f runs for Brian Toomey this winter; handles good to soft but any slower is an unknown; return to sprinting looks a good move; betting instructive.

Scored comfortably on 1m Newbury debut (soft) in April; has disappointingly failed to build on that in three outings over 1m2f since and now drops 3f in trip with first-time blinkers replacing the cheekpieces he wore last time; needs to get back on track.

All of her wins have come at 6f/7f but she finished well when third at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) last time; now goes back up in grade but she's on a dangerous mark and looks worth another try at this trip; not ruled out.

Both wins on AW but he's equally as effective on turf, performing with credit again when third of six at Newmarket (7f, good to soft) 42 days ago; consistent and should be on the premises.

7lb lower than when winning at Epsom (6f, good to firm) in July 2022 but weakened to finish a remote fourth (not helped by being hampered by a loose horse but it's only a partial excuse) in that same contest four weeks ago; not an obvious one after that but a career-low mark and the presence of William Buick in the saddle mean he can't be dismissed.

5lb lower than when winning the corresponding race 12 months ago (good to firm); some fair efforts on AW earlier in the year and perhaps in need of the outing when behind Faro De San Juan at Chester last month; his last three turf wins have come here, at Brighton and Goodwood so undulating tracks clearly no barrier to success; interesting.
