Ran flat in the Group 2 Park Hill at Doncaster (14.5f, soft) last time, but placed four times in Pattern company prior to that as when runner-up in a Chester Listed contest (1m6f, good to soft) on penultimate start; won a four-runner handicap here (1m4f) on only previous AW outing and looks the one to beat.

Creditable second over 1m6f at Leopardstown (Group 3) in July and Chester (Listed) this month; largely consistent but still has only one success on the board and faces a harder task upped to Group 2 level.

Form & Verdict

Went close in the 2021 Irish Derby for previous yard; not so good since but second of six in the 1m5f Group 3 Ormonde here (soft) in May was clearly his best result this term; tried 2m4f in the Gold Cup at Ascot next time and 2m in the Goodwood Cup on latest; good form chance.

Went close in the 2021 Irish Derby; not so good since and soundly beaten in this race last year on his sole run on heavy going; second to Hamish at Chester (1m5f, soft) in May is clearly the best of his five runs for new yard this season; his next two runs were admittedly Group 1s but Chester Listed race last time gives him lots to find.

Form & Verdict

Scored easily at Newbury (1m2f, good; handicap debut) in May; good, never-nearer second over 1m4f at Ascot (good to soft) on penultimate start was easily the best of his three runs since, but even that leaves a very stiff task at this level.

Won in fine style at Newbury (1m2f, good) last May and continued to progress when runner-up three times in the second half of the year (1m4f-1m6f, good to soft/soft); absent since tailed off in AW Listed race last November but not discounted on her reappearance.

Impressive when making a successful handicap debut at Newbury (1m2f, good) in May and runner-up three times since, including at around this sort of trip the last twice; finished 3l behind Divine Jewel in a Chester Listed contest (1m6f, good to soft) in September, though, and still to prove herself on the AW.

Form & Verdict

Brother to Derby and King George winner Adayar; smart form on first two runs this season, winning a novice at Newbury (1m2f, soft) and the Lingfield Derby Trial (1m4f, AW); that saw him start co-second favourite for the Derby at Epsom (1m4f, good to firm) but he faded from fifth turning for home to finish last of 14; absent since but excellent chance in this if the earlier impressions are anything to go by.

Won the Lingfield Derby Trial on AW (1m4f) in May; disappointing in the Derby itself and a 1m6f Chester Listed race (found little) subsequently but evidently highly regarded by his top yard (went off 9-2 for the Derby and at evens or shorter on his five other starts) and market strength would look significant back from five months off (has been gelded).
