Form & Verdict

Won on soft in 2021 but raced mostly on good/firmer since; impressive in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot when last seen two months ago, registering his first Group 1 success, taking his record over 1m2f to 3-4 and enhancing his excellent record when fresh; has earned a very high rating for the latest performance and commands major respect back from another break.

Has come up well short on his three attempts in Group 1 races; however, 1m4f appeared to stretch him in the Dubai Sheema Classic in March last time, when he ran well for a very long way, and he looked better than ever when easily winning a Group 3 in Saudi Arabia (10.5f, good to firm) in February; not ruled out now back down in trip.

Form & Verdict

Has form on most types of ground; three-time Group 1 winner against her own sex, most recently in this year's Falmouth dropped back to 1m; hindered by steady pace when bidding for a repeat Nassau success at Goodwood (1m2f) and wasn't disgraced in finishing a close third; very smart filly but needs a career-best performance to land this prize on first run against males.

Three-time Group 1 winner against her own sex, most recently by 5l in this year's Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket when taking record over 1m to 2-2; has remained in form back at 1m2f since, most recently a close third in the Irish Champion Stakes having come from a difficult position; acts on soft; very good filly who is still unexposed as a miler and holds solid claims.

Form & Verdict

Phenomenal 3yo colt whose toughness, tenacity and remarkable progress has rightly earned him comparisons with "Iron Horse" Giant's Causeway who won this race in 2000 for the same stable following a similar campaign; admittedly had a relatively straightforward task in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood most recently but that enhanced his excellent career record (form figures read 51111111) and brought up a Group 1 four-timer following wins in the Irish 2,000 Guineas, St James's Palace Stakes and 1m2f Eclipse; unraced on firmer than good; thrives on his racing and is proving an unstoppable force.

Ballydoyle colt whose impressive sequence of wins included the Irish 1,000 Guineas, St James's Palace, Eclipse and Sussex; combination of faster ground (good to firm) and the effects of a very busy campaign can excuse his defeat in the International at York when last seen (unable to complete an eight-timer but still ran creditably on the figures); acts on heavy; comes back fresh following a deserved two-month break and remains worthy of great respect; top on ratings.

Form & Verdict

Has raced on only good/firmer; winner of the Royal Lodge as 2yo and Dante (over C&D) this year; respectable fifth in the Derby without quite seeing out 1m4f, then finished strongly for second (ended up with too much to do) in the Belmont Derby in USA when dropped back to 1m2f; may have more to offer at this trip but faces a difficult task in this field back on home soil.

Won the Group 2 Dante at York (extended 1m2f, good to firm) last May; didn't improve further but the only major negative in his record since is his last of 13 in Saudi Arabia in February; not far away if he bounces back.

A dual Group 2 winner, namely the Royal Lodge as a 2yo and the Dante at York (extended 1m2f) last May; limitations exposed in top company later in his 3yo campaign but still recorded RPRs good enough to win a race like this; tackles AW for the first time after a five-month break.
