Form & Verdict

3yo who won on reappearance at Chepstow (1m2f, good to firm) in June and returned to form with narrow win at Bath (11.6f, good to firm) three weeks ago; further improvement can't be ruled out but there's a suspicion she'll be vulnerable now back up in grade.

Form & Verdict

Often races prominently and slow starts haven't helped when below par the last twice (soft ground a further excuse at Doncaster latest); however, he's now 2lb lower than when runner-up over C&D (good) in May on his sole race here and can make a bold bid if things go to plan at the start.

Won at Newcastle in 2021 but came last at Wolverhampton in 2022 on his only other AW start, both on Tapeta; had turf wins last year at Windsor in May, Newbury in June and in Hungary in September, before two minor honours at Newmarket in the autumn; ran respectably on both attempts at 1m6f (last summer) but has more to prove going beyond that for the first time.

Runner-up on first three starts (1m2f, good to firm/good) before easily getting off the mark at 1-7 in a four-runner novice at Hamilton (1m4f, good) last time; faces a much tougher task on today's handicap debut but this 625,000gns Frankel colt is in excellent hands to continue to improve.

Form & Verdict

Won a 1m maiden here (good) last September on the middle of his three 2yo starts and he scored on his belated reappearance in a handicap at Kempton (1m3f, AW) four weeks ago; this 3yo is very much unexposed and his attractive pedigree suggests he could have more left in the tank.

4yo who has got back on track with solid efforts in middle-distance handicaps on his last four runs; only 1lb higher than for his second at Kempton (1m4f) last time but he's now 1-9 in handicaps and has stamina to prove on this switch to a staying trip; mixed messages.

Returned from 11 months off to make a successful handicap debut at Kempton (1m3f) last August and back to form the last twice, including when third of 11 behind two of these at Southwell (1m3f, Tapeta) three weeks ago; the extra furlong should suit and he remains relatively unexposed; one for the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Flopped when upped to 1m4f in first-time blinkers at Ascot last time and he needs to be an entirely different proposition just 19 days on; however, the headgear is removed and this 3yo had shown considerable promise in Listed races earlier in the campaign; in top hands and not written off.

Has earned top weight, being a useful colt who was a Listed scorer (7f, good to firm) last term; two creditable efforts over 1m2f in same grade this season; possibilities on handicap debut, provided he takes well to first-time headgear and stays the new trip (no guarantee on breeding).

Form & Verdict

Kept on well to win at York (1m2f, good to firm) in May and perhaps Epsom and Goodwood didn't suit the next twice; returned to form with a win back at York (1m4f, good to firm) at the Ebor meeting under Ryan Moore and he's unexposed at this trip; progressive and on the shortlist up 6lb.

Boom or bust in handicaps, leading near the line at this track (1m2f, good to firm) in May for his latest win; just 1lb higher today, following two of his lesser efforts, and the step up to 1m4f is interesting, as is the booking of Ryan Moore; in serious calculations.
