Form & Verdict

Useful as 2yo; slow start to this campaign but he was gelded in May and hasn't looked back since a hood was added, winning 5f handicaps here and at Ascot (on good or quicker); still on the up but slower ground does ask a different question of him.

J: Kazuo Yokoyama

T: Tom Clover

Smart as 2yo on turf, particularly when runner-up in good 6f Listed race; this season did not get off to a good start but he looked more his old self when dropped to 5f in first-time hood (retained) at Doncaster in July (good to firm), moving smoothly past his rivals to win neatly; up 7lb in a better race but there is more to come from him.

J: Robert Havlin

Raced only five times; has Listed form over 6f and 5.5f; went too freely in useful 6f handicap at Newmarket most recently; gelded since; may settle better dropped to bare 5f in first-time hood and looks interesting with improvement possible.

Form & Verdict

Solid form in Group races this year, notably his Goodwood third, and better than ever with his mighty weight-carrying effort in a good Haydock handicap last week; stayed on strongly off a good pace on that occasion to win with something to spare (good Topspeed figure); fully effective on soft and he's the one to beat on ratings; solid contender.

Tough sprinter who looks better than ever this season; cracking effort to win a Haydock handicap (5f, good) a fortnight ago and he bumped into a rapid improver at Doncaster on Saturday; effective on very soft ground and should make another bold bid.

Yet to win in 2023 but not for a lack of effort, regularly acquitting himself with credit in top sprints; near his best when third in a Group 2 at Goodwood five weeks ago and that form looks rock solid; going back up 6lb does leave him with something to find on this year's handicap runs though.

Form & Verdict

Developed into a smart performer in the last year and he's shown no signs of his enthusiasm waning, running well in a deep AW handicap last month and missing out narrowly in Listed race at Beverley two days later (5f, good); appears to handle soft but drying ground won't faze him; another big run is on the cards.

Well handicapped on last season's best; not at the same level on AW this winter but he's the type to pop up sooner rather than later; whether it will be on ground so testing as this is a moot point.

Form & Verdict

Speedy front-runner who has enjoyed a productive two-year spell for this stable, notably on AW but also fully effective on turf; not at his best at Newcastle last month, however, and he's unfavoured by these terms; effective on soft ground in France in his youth.
