Form & Verdict

Made all in this last year (good) and did likewise on reappearance in another C&D Group 2 in May (good); below par at Royal Ascot and York the last twice and carries a 3lb penalty today, but five runs on the Rowley Mile have yielded four wins and he could bounce back to his best now returned here.

Solid Group 3 performer, landing his fifth success at that level in the Diomed at Epsom (8.5f, good to firm) in June; creditable third of five in 1m Salisbury Group 3 since; likely to give his running but might again be vulnerable for win purposes under the penalty.

3yo who was a Listed winner at Epsom (1m2f, soft) in April and landed the Group 3 Throroughbred Stakes at Goodwood (1m, soft) in August; ran well on good ground here last season; not ruled out but it's been an up-and-down campaign and he wasn't at his best at Goodwood (1m, soft) last time.

Acts on heavy; reappearance win commenced his spell at about 1m2f; proved suited by the drop back to 1m at Glorious Goodwood but has failed to build on that Group 3 success in two subsequent runs; towards the bottom of this pack on the figures.

Proved well suited by dropping back to 1m when winning seven-runner Group 3 over C&D (soft; also successful on good to firm) three weeks ago, swooping through to lead inside the final 1f and beating the hot favourite by 1l, with Galeron and Knight making the frame; that was a personal best and there may be more to come from him over this distance; high on the list.

Won last spring on first three starts (7f/1m, good/AW; including the German 2,000 Guineas) and granted a clear run he would probably have made it 4-4 in the Group 1 St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot (1m, good to firm) last June; absent since but strong claims if retaining all of his ability.

Rapidly developed into a smart miler last summer, very close fifth in Group 1 St James's Palace before a Listed win at Newmarket, but disappointing on final 3yo start and on his only run this term; good to soft ground and some ring-rustiness might help explain the latter but connections also now turn to cheekpieces.

Rapidly developed into a smart miler last summer, very close fifth in Group 1 St James's Palace over C&D before a Listed win at Newmarket; a touch disappointing when stepped up to 1m1f at York on final 3yo start but his overall profile is positive and he could easily have more to come in 2023; contender but he was keen in quite a few of his races last year and wouldn't want to be too fresh back from 11 months off; raced only on good/good to firm.
