Never counted on his debut but was wiser to the job at hand when travelling well before getting the better of a long-time leader over C&D a month ago (good to soft); a line of form through the runner-up gives him something to find with Houstonn, but he saw that latest race out with plenty of gusto and his rider struggled to pull him up; promising.

Nicely bred colt who showed some promise in Sandown maiden (7f, soft; kept on for fifth) last month despite being weak in the betting; represents in-form stable and should be capable of progress.

J: Silvestre De Sousa

T: Ralph Beckett

Last seen finishing well held in a conditions event in Doha (7f, good) in December, but probably best judged on his previous efforts as when making a successful nursery debut at Ayr (1m, good to soft); shouldn't have an issue with the longer trip, but this won't be easy giving weight away to some unexposed and race-fit rivals.

Went close at Newbury (1m, good to soft) in August on second start and fast ground may not have been ideal when third at Salisbury (1m) last time; brings potential to this nursery debut and he's one to consider.

Too Darn Hot colt who made a promising debut in traditionally useful novice event here (7f, good) four weeks ago, staying on for second; entered in the Champagne Stakes and Royal Lodge; commands respect.

Easily won a novice at Thirsk (7f, good) last September on his third start and improved again when runner-up in Group 3 over this C&D (good to soft) later that month; brings leading form claims to this reappearance.

Cost 130,000euros as a yearling but he finished a remote last of six in Newbury maiden (1m, good to soft; 12-1) on his debut last August; been gelded since and he needs major improvement after 266 days off.
