Form & Verdict

Building a solid profile and seemed to see out the 1m well enough in a Thirsk nursery last week (good), though that was in a lower grade and the winner was beaten in sellers earlier in the season; can handle good to soft but was taken out of a soft-ground date last month.

Form & Verdict

50-1 winner of a valuable 7f novice at Yarmouth (good to soft) on his second run but he dropped out disappointingly when penalised back there three weeks ago (good); that run leaves him with a few questions to answer now he's sent into handicaps off this mark.

Form & Verdict

Well behind State Of Desire off the same weights when they met at Haydock in June; that was his debut and he's improved to make the frame in novices at Haydock (soft) and Newcastle (1m, AW); well-bred half-brother to three winners, could progress further and these conditions won't faze him.

Down the field on fast ground on his debut but placed in his next four runs as a 2yo (7f-1m including soft and heavy); gelded during his absence; needs a step forward but that's not out of the question.

Mixed messages from the form of his C&D second (soft) in July but a proven ability under the conditions will be advantageous; return to 7f can help but perhaps vulnerable to an improver.

Seemed fine on soft when shaping well on debut here and took quite a marked step forward when finishing well for third on the drop back to 7f at Musselburgh (good to firm); the front two in that latest race remain promising individuals; strongly considered returned to 1m for nursery debut.

Returns to the scene of his finest hour when he ploughed through the heavy ground to win the 5f Brocklesby here back in April; hasn't lived up to that, with one of his two nursery defeats coming on soft ground; also unconvincing going over 1m for the first time.

Form & Verdict

Frankel colt out of a Kingman mare and cost 400,000gns as a yearling; entering nurseries off 78 wasn't the plan but there have been positives to take from his first three runs (7f/1m) and he could be a different proposition now gelded; interesting to gauge the confidence behind him; unraced on softer than good to soft.

Frankel colt who showed promise when placed over 6f/7f on good to firm at the start of the summer; given a bit of time ahead of this third start and it's likely 1m will suit him; leading claims.

400,000gns yearling; first foal; by Frankel out of 7f AW 2yo/1m turf winner (RPR 93), whose dam was a 1m Group 1 winner; 5-6 when third of seven in novice at Yarmouth (6f, good to firm) three weeks ago, front rank until outgunned over 1f out; yard also runs By The Book; this extra 1f will help and it will be interesting to see if his backers return.
