Form & Verdict

Defied market weakness in the Wood Ditton before dead-heating for third with this week's Great Voltigeur winner Continuous in the Dante at York despite several doors closing in his face up the straight; had any number of excuses in the Derby (lack of experience/stamina/track) and remains a colt of considerable potential.

Second foal; brother to Italian 1m1f/1m3f winner; dam 1m winner (RPR 90); weak 11-1 for eight-runner newcomers race at Newmarket (1m, good) four weeks ago but always in touch and led just over 1f out before going 3l clear; withdrawn from Chester Listed race last week when ground was soft; very promising.

Gelded prior to winning at Longchamp (1m2f, good to soft; Group 3) then second in the Group 2 Hardwick at Royal Ascot (1m4f, good to firm); he put the pace to the race in the Eclipse before being predictably brushed aside by the market principals; has nothing of Paddington or Emily Upjohn's stature to worry about here and he's hard to knock.

Form & Verdict

Maintained his progress in handicaps when winning at Royal Ascot (1m2f, good to firm) and it could have been that soft ground didn't suit on his promotion to Group 3 level at Goodwood (1m4f, soft), though he had plenty on at the weights and went off 28-1; will need his best yet by some way to beat the best of these.

The best of these on the Flat and ran right up to his best when third in a 1m2f Group 3 at Windsor on final run in that scene; despite being gelded and having a hood fitted, he again raced freely off a modest pace on hurdle debut at Huntingdon (good to soft) but still outclassed inferior rivals at long odds-on; Cheltenham will ask different questions of him but there is lots to like otherwise; ran well on soft during Flat career.

Form & Verdict

Needs the ground good or ideally firmer; highly progressive in winning three handicaps last season (7f-1m2f) and returned from three months off to win a 1m2f Listed race for her own sex at Salisbury ten days ago pretty much as she liked; still difficult to gauge the ceiling of her ability and she should have a lot going for her.

Form dipped last autumn but wasn't disgraced in York Group 2 on sole outing this term; was progressive at an earlier stage and won handicaps (1m2f, good to firm) at two major festivals last summer; peak figure gives her major claims in this field.

Improving 4yo who was better than ever when coming clear in a handicap over 11.4f here last month and could have done with drier ground when appearing not to stay 1m4f at the Shergar Cup (good to soft); he's fine at 1m2f but these terms are persuasively unfavourable.

Has often gone from the front but has shaped well ridden with restraint the last twice, making up a lot of the ground in the closing stages when fourth of 14 over 1m2f at Lingfield under Ethan Jones on Good Friday; not discounted from an unchanged mark.

Usually front-runs but from a wide draw he was held up here 28 days ago and finished with a right rattle to make the frame, despite racing very wide on the last bend; again he's dropped unlucky with the draw but if again held up he should at least have a strong pace up ahead of him.

Quirky customer who carries his head high and whose only win in his last 20 starts came in a three-runner race; went close in one of the handicaps at the Shergar Cup (1m; better at this trip) last time but did have the run of things up front and still couldn't quite finish the job off; others preferred.
