Form & Verdict

On a losing run of seven since running away with a 1m4f handicap at last year's Royal Ascot; since placed at Listed/Group 3 level, so no doubt he'll bag one of these sooner or later, and softening ground was against him last time at Goodwood.

Suited by 1m4f; creditable fourth of six in this race last year; hit new heights on latest two starts, winning a six-runner Listed event at Windsor (Lion's Pride a close third) and second of seven in Group 3 at Kempton; gives weight all round but has the form to be taken seriously.

Record around here reads 313, the win coming over this trip as a 3yo; returned to winning form in a Windsor Listed event (11.4f, good to firm) a fortnight ago and although more will be needed to take this, he can't be dismissed entirely back here; stable won this with Hamish two years ago.

Form & Verdict

Set steady fractions when a pacemaker for the same owner's Desert Crown on Group 3 reappearance and was flattered by his close proximity to the principals; weakened into mid-division when 22-1 for the Listed Wolferton at Royal Ascot (1m2f, good); he is 2-2 here, though, including the Group 3 on this card two years ago; usual cheekpieces left off.

Form & Verdict

Half-brother to Gold Cup winner Courage Mon Ami (three other siblings also posted triple-digit RPRs) and likely to stay well himself given that he holds a St Leger entry; not that he looked short of speed when skipping clear in a 1m3f AW novice last time, the form of which has worked out very well; intriguing contender.

Successful in similar event here (1m4f) five months ago, beating a subsequent Group 1 scorer and taking Kempton record to 2-2; still has low mileage and /looks the type to improve further this term; should be as effective back at 1m2f; strongly respected, even with 3lb penalty.

Form & Verdict

Last season was a good one, winning the Bahrain Trophy and Great Voltigeur before finishing fourth when favourite for the Melbourne Cup; made an encouraging reappearance in the Group 2 Hardwicke (1m4f) and his no-show in the King George (pulled hard; 33-1) was the first poor performance of his career; boasts compelling form claims back at Listed level; first-time cheekpieces.

Raced mostly on good/firmer; solid 2022 campaign featured a success in the Great Voltigeur and creditable fourth in the Melbourne Cup; unable to repeat that form during a light 2023 season but holds good claims provided he takes well to first-time blinkers on 2024 reappearance.

Successful in the Bahrain Trophy and Great Voltigeur last summer before running creditably when favourite for the Melbourne Cup (soft); respectable fourth to Pyledriver in the Hardwicke (C&D, good to firm) on reappearance and he's yet to run a bad race; however, this looks his stiffest-ever assignment.

Form & Verdict

Wasn't having the best of seasons but rediscovered his touch when runner-up in a Listed event at Newmarket two months ago (1m4f, good), albeit probably flattered to some extent from a handy position (front two were that way throughout); has a bit to find with the best of these anyway.

Runner-up on final two starts last season (1m2f/1m3f, good/AW) and improved form when readily winning six-runner Class 3 at Lingfield (1m2f, AW) last month; unraced on slow ground; this is much tougher but this lightly raced 4yo is ahead of the handicapper under a 5lb penalty; one to consider.
