Left his debut effort behind to win well in maiden at Ascot (6f, good), having made up his ground easily from off the pace; now goes into much deeper waters but he's promising; the extra distance shouldn't faze him.

Yet to race on ground softer than good; very nice prospect for Eve Johnson Houghton, having shown good progress during the summer, most recently winning the Group 3 Acomb Stakes at York on the step up to 7f; gained both wins under Danny Tudhope; may well improve further.

75,000gns yearling and half-brother to a 1m4f winner; 10-1, prominent to a point before weakening into third of eight at Newbury (6f, good); Aljezur's division of that race was marginally faster but the stable's winner of this 12 months ago was only eighth on his debut.

Form & Verdict

Group 2 Richmond at Glorious Goodwood (6f, soft) was not for the first time he was slow to break, but he saw that race out with a purpose to finish clear second behind Vandeek, who gave that form an almighty boost when winning last weekend's Group 1 in France; no question that he sets the standard back in this Group 3 and going up to 7f should be a good thing (has Group 1 or 2 entries from 6f to 1m); both turf starts on softer than good.

Form & Verdict

Three of the last seven Acomb winners had raced only once and this colt made a winning debut over C&D (good to soft) last month, albeit by the skin of his teeth in what wasn't the strongest race; tongue tied this time; his trainer's runners are always respected at this meeting but this one needs to find a hefty chunk of improvement and, unlike all his rivals, he lacks further Group-race entries.

Last two runs were also at 7f; close fifth in the Listed Chesham at Royal Ascot (good to firm) before winning as he liked from the front on soft ground at Salisbury; latter form entitles him to a crack at this loftier level.

Churchill half-brother to four winners; defied market weakness in novice at Newbury (7f, good; 14-1) to run out a comfortable 2l winner despite racing freely during the first half of his race; the runner-up let that form down last week and this colt has plenty to find on Topspeed/RPR figures, but he's a good looker with Group 1 and 2 entries; stable has won this twice in the last nine years; dangerous.

Both starts over 7f last summer, beating a useful sort at Newbury then performing below expectations (started joint-favourite) in the Acomb at York where he was sweating and failed to settle; matters of temperament aside, he's a major form contender back down in class.

Form & Verdict

Both runs at 5f on slower ground; blew the start and ran green when clear second at Tipperary behind a subsequent Listed winner, before overcoming another slow start at Naas, where he was extending his lead at the finish; the Naas runner-up could finish only fourth in another maiden last weekend but this imposing colt could improve any amount for stepping up to 7f (dam's side of the pedigree casts no doubts).
