Form & Verdict

High-class 2yo, winning four of her five starts with the pinnacle her impressive Cheveley Park success in September (6f, good); didn't stay 1m on soft ground in the 1,000 Guineas but not unreasonable to have expected better at Royal Ascot nine weeks ago; as an unpenalised Group 1 winner she has to be taken seriously but there must be reservations.

Won the Group 1 Cheveley Park at Newmarket (6f, good) last September and left her first two 3yo runs well behind when Listed winner at Newmarket (6f, good) a fortnight ago; needs to step up on that latest form but her juvenile exploits provide hope in that regard.

Form & Verdict

Usually seen in the Nunthorpe at this time of year, placed in 2021 and 2022; can call upon Group 1 form from as recently as November (second in the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint) but his two runs this year have been underwhelming (wind surgery before last one); this is a marked drop in class and he's the one to beat if he retains ability; the fact he's lining up here does make that 'if' a big one though.

He has done well for this yard, including a Nottingham handicap success in June and a placed effort in the Wokingham; last time can be excused but he looks to face a stiff task on these terms.

Progressed again last season, placed in the Wokingham before a series of good runs in Listed/Group 3 events; fine run to finish second over 5f at Southwell last month and last time easy to strike a line through (an administrative error meant he was forced to run over 1m4f in order to be eligible for this race); big chance back at 6f.

Progressive at two and he ran a blinder when second of 20 in last season's Commonwealth Cup; picked up a valuable prize in Qatar in February but further globetrotting in the spring brought no reward; tough task off top weight in the Wokingham last time but better expected at this level.

Smart 3yo (Group 1 runner-up at Royal Ascot) and he made a winning return as a 4yo when landing a big pot in Qatar last February; found it tougher going afterwards but he's tackling lesser opposition than he's used to today and he returns with his stable going well; respected on AW debut.

Very good second of 20 in Group 1 Commonwealth Cup over C&D (good to firm) last June; has had some excuses since but he picked up a valuable prize at Doha in February and the return to this track on drying ground is in his favour; carrying top weight is still a big ask.

Form & Verdict

Similar profile to Annaf in that he's prolific on AW but has yet to score on turf despite some fine efforts; went desperately close at Newbury five weeks ago (6f, good to soft; Group 3) and he's a strong contender once again.

The majority of his form suggests he faces a hopeless task in this field but he did run well in a Haydock Group 3 in June (7f, good to firm) and isn't exposed at 6f; still easy enough to swerve.
