Form & Verdict

Strong staying type who won the Queen's Vase and the St Leger last season; three outings in Cup races this year, kicking off encouragingly with second in Yorkshire Cup; disappointed in Ascot Gold Cup; better when fourth at Goodwood, two short heads behind runner-up Emily Dickinson; 1m6f probably close to his optimum.

Form & Verdict

Developed into a star stayer last season, with a perfect 6-6 record; 2m4f Ascot Gold Cup win was followed by victories in the 2m Goodwood Cup and this race before he signed off with a remarkable 20l win (achieved despite handling sharply to the left) in testing conditions over 2m4f in the Prix du Cadran; reported in fine shape for his delayed reappearance.

Last season's top stayer with a 6-6 record, including the Gold Cup here and best form when 20l winner (hanging badly when clear) on very soft over 2m4f in the Prix du Cadran; odds on but ring-rusty in the 1m6f Irish St Leger six weeks ago on return from injury, keeping on into second of four which connections reportedly assess as a satisfactory stepping stone to this race; the one to beat on peak form but needs a major step forward from that latest run.

Form & Verdict

Won two handicaps in the early part of last season; showed much-improved form to win a 1m6f Group 3 at Leopardstown in May on his seasonal debut; failed to handle soft ground when sixth behind Emily Dickinson over C&D in July; respectable display when seventh in the Ebor, but this is very demanding; first time with cheekpieces.

Last of 19 at Royal Ascot 2022 on his only foray to Britain (sole start on good to firm); finished well in his Irish 1m2f/1m4f handicaps last season and reappeared with markedly improved form to win a 1m6f Group 3 at Leopardstown (good) in May; that promised better still, which did not materialise in a soft-ground Group 2 last time but he remains one with potential.

Narrowly got the better of Point King in a Group 3 at Leopardstown on his sole start this term; could come on for that run but probably doesn't want the ground to get testing.
