Form & Verdict

Won two of three novice events, latterly in pretty smooth fashion at Redcar (1m2f, good to firm) in May; racing so freely has not helped when well held in hot handicaps at Royal Ascot (1m4f) and Newmarket (1m2f; made most) and he's better than those results; has his sights lowered but still needs to settle with the new hood.

J: Benoit De La Sayette

T: John & Thady Gosden

Dual novice winner in early part of this year (1m/1m2f); yet to make his mark in handicaps but contested two hot races before chasing home an exciting prospect at Newmarket (1m2f, good to firm; first-time hood) in August; not a straightforward ride but could still have a bigger run in him.

Form & Verdict

One of three runners for this yard; scored over 1m2f at Chester in May and largely consistent otherwise this term, most recently second at Beverley (upped to 1m4f; good) last Saturday; appears likely to go well again.

Form & Verdict

C&D winner (good; 4lb higher today) in June; not so hot back here on good to firm next time, albeit in a better race, and although he wasn't beaten far at Chelmsford (AW) on latest start, that was in only seventh of 11; faces fewer rivals this time but not top of the list.

J: Neil Callan

T: James Tate

Ten races and usually seriously involved, this season's exception on soft ground; best efforts came in 1m2f handicaps on good ground under Neil Callan at Newmarket on last two starts, the latter a C&D win since which the second and fourth have both won; not harshly treated with 4lb rise.

Form & Verdict

Stacks of stamina on the dam's side and made promising late gains from an impossible position when fifth of 13 in handicap at Epsom (upped to 1m2f, good to firm) on Derby day; perhaps it was the soft ground which explains such a disappointing show at Glorious Goodwood (1m2f; 11-1) but he'd run well enough on it at Chester in May; early days but others are preferred in this.

Unable to threaten on last three starts but he's well treated on form as recent as June and perhaps the first-time blinkers will give him a boost.
