Acts on soft; off the bridle some way out at Royal Ascot when failing to complete a five-timer; below par in cheekpieces at Haydock (Group 3) last time but looks one of the main contenders in this field, provided he's back to best; headgear retained; Listed winner over C&D in May.

Goodwood Listed win (1m2f, good to firm) in May is his peak form; off the bridle some way out at Royal Ascot when failing to complete a five-timer; cheekpieces on both starts since, back near his best when second in another Goodwood Listed race (1m2f, soft) on latest; needs to be in top form and not having raced beyond 10.4f gives him a bit to prove, but there's a fair chance he'll stay on pedigree and he ran on well last time; form player.

Down the field on last month's reappearance and her best form has come on slow ground; however, she showed promise on good/good to firm earlier in career and may have needed that latest outing; on a competitive mark and not written off.

Form & Verdict

Both starts over 7f on soft ground at Doncaster in April, getting up close home on latest occasion; shapes as if he'll be suited by 1m+ and pedigree backs that up; brings potential to this higher grade and looks interesting on return to action, particularly if the market speaks positively.

An improved performer this season; often held up and coming from last of four worked out nicely in 1m2f Listed raced at Sandown on latest outing; showed career-best form in that win, so he is capable of a bold show if the cards fall right again.

Form & Verdict

Had some strong pieces of form last term for Aidan O'Brien, culminating in maiden success at Naas (1m, heavy) where his rivals included a couple of smart colts; solid second in Group 3 the time before; likely to stay 1m2f; remains unexposed and looks interesting on belated reappearance, especially if the market signals speak favourably.
