Form & Verdict

Bit disappointing when beaten just under 5l into third in the Group 2 Hungerford at Newbury (7f, good to soft) three weeks ago but his second in the Group 1 Lockinge there (1m, good) in May shows what a classy operator he is on his day; bang there if back to anywhere near his best.

Couple of notable 7f wins early in career but raced mainly at 1m since; successful three times this term and ran respectably in the Joel Stakes here most recently; not crying out for this drop back in trip; below-par third in this race two years ago.

No win since his 2yo days but that doesn't really tell the story as he's regularly performed well at the very highest level, including when third to Inspiral in the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville (1m) last month; raced only on good or softer so drying ground a slight concern but he's the one to beat on form with his sights lowered.

Lightly raced colt; Newmarket reappearance (behind Mutasaabeq) didn't pan out ideally; this looks more suitable and he's 1-1 at Newbury (soft-ground Group 3 win as a 2yo); good second in two Group 1 races at Deauville (7f/1m, good to soft) last summer; capable of a big run.

Solid Group 3 performer, landing his fifth success at that level in the Diomed at Epsom (8.5f, good to firm) in June; creditable third of five in 1m Salisbury Group 3 since; likely to give his running but might again be vulnerable for win purposes under the penalty.

The sole 3yo in the field and he showed he's smart on just his fifth career start when 1l second of 15 in the Group 3 Jersey at Royal Ascot (7f, good to firm) in June, although it probably wasn't a vintage renewal of that race; Australian interests subsequently acquired a 50% share in him and he's moved from James Ferguson to Harry Eustace ahead of this first outing for 11 weeks.

Beat Covey, albeit with that rival was making his debut, in Southwell novice (7f, AW) in April when making it two wins from three starts; soft ground may not have been ideal when 9l fourth in the Group 3 Greenham at Newbury last time and he retains potential, but others look more compelling.
