Form & Verdict

Won the Group 2 Lennox Stakes at Goodwood (7f, good) last season and returned to form when third in the Group 2 City of York (7f, good to firm) last month in a first-time visor (retained); it remains to be seen if slow ground still suits but she could be bang there if handling conditions.

Perked up by a visor on her last two outings and victory in the Group 2 Park Stakes at Doncaster (7f, soft) was a career-best effort; should be just as effective back at 6f under testing conditions and she's closely matched with Kinross on several pieces of form; commands major respect.

Three-time Group winner and a creditable third behind Kinross here 12 months ago but she hasn't built on a satisfactory reappearance run, only sixth of ten at Deauville three weeks ago; now wears headgear; opposable.

Form & Verdict

Made all in the Group 3 Criterion Stakes at Newmarket (7f, good) in July, beating runner-up Jumby by 2l, and back to form with close second in Group 2 City of York Stakes (7f, good to firm) three weeks ago; holds strong form claims but in between those runs he was below par in the Group 2 Lennox Stakes at Goodwood (7f, good to soft) and the forecast slow ground is a concern.

Form & Verdict

Reappeared with 7f conditions win at Thirsk (7f, soft) in April and has enjoyed a fine campaign, winning Deauville Group 3 (6f, soft) in July and going very close in the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest there (6.5f, very soft) last month; runner-up in good-ground Group 2 last year; key player.

Largely consistent 2023 campaign included a success in French Group 3 and two good efforts at Group 1 level, doing well to finish third at Ascot the final time (met traffic issues); clear possibilities granted ideal ground (peak form on soft).

Has enjoyed a fine season, winning Deauville Group 3 (6f, soft) in July and going down by only a short head in the Group 1 Maurice de Gheest there (6.5f, very soft) in August, but he was a bit disappointing when only third of five in 7f Group 2 at Doncaster five weeks ago; will need a career best.

Form & Verdict

Has something to find in today's company and he wasn't at his best in the International Handicap (7f, good) in July when last seen; however, that run may have come too soon, a fortnight after his convincing win in the Bunbury Cup (7f, good to soft) at Newmarket, and he's been highly progressive in 7f handicaps; slow ground would be in his favour and he's entitled to respect.

Below par at Group/Listed level the last twice; has a largely productive record in 7f handicaps, notably a good second in the Victoria Cup here (soft) in May and success in the Bunbury Cup at Newmarket (good to soft) in July; not dismissed back in similar scenario.
