Form & Verdict

Well-bred colt (dam won four Group 2s) who made the perfect start in maiden at Newmarket (7f, good; 4-7) in July, leading over 1f out; open to plenty of improvement and a big player for a stable that won this race 12 months ago and also in 2017 with subsequent Derby winner Masar.

Has been only workmanlike in winning both starts (7f, good), latest at Sandown in the Solario, but he's a Dubawi colt who looks likely to progress further and will be suited by this step up to 1m; respected.

Form & Verdict

Has progressed markedly with each run, winning a Kempton maiden in June and running well when third in a big-field nursery at York (7f, good to firm) last week; that's solid form but he's up in class here and may need another personal best.

475,000gns yearling; needed the experience when fifth to Starlore on debut over C&D and stepped up on that form to win easily at Ffos Las (7.3f, soft) last month; could still have lots of untapped potential and he looks worth his place in this higher grade.

Ffos Las maiden winner (7.4f, soft) last August who twice made the frame at Group 3 level before excelling himself when second of seven in the Group 1 Kameko Futurity at Doncaster (1m, heavy) in October; slightly disappointing when only third of seven in a Deauville Group 3 (7f, heavy) last month, but may have had an excuse and this looks a good opportunity.

Form & Verdict

Bred to be useful (by Kingman; dam won 1m2f Grade 2) and he became his stable's only winning 2yo newcomer of the season when scoring over C&D (good; 9-2; idled) in July; that form has had several boosts, including from Devil's Point who reopposes today; open to a good deal of progress.

Idled in front when winning on debut at Sandown (7f, good) last July and not beaten far when fourth of six in Group 3 there (7f, good) in September; soft ground may not have suited at York in October when last seen; in good hands and brings potential to his 3yo campaign; could be a contender.

Form & Verdict

100,000gns yearling; debut effort didn't quicken the pulse but he made startling improvement to win Leicester novice (7f, good to firm; 15-2) next time by 5l; that suggests he's well above average and he's much respected for a bang-in-form stable.
