Form & Verdict

Won a soft-ground Group 2 in France as a juvenile and even better form in defeat last year, reaching the frame three times over 1m at Group 1 level; behind the reopposing Knight when only a respectable third in Group 2 Celebration Mile at Goodwood (soft) on final start; should go well for a yard seeking a fourth win in this since 2016.

Much improved when Listed winner at Doncaster (1m, heavy) on reappearance and she's been third in Group 2 (1m1f, soft) and Group 3 (8.5f, good to firm) races the last twice; it seems likely she'll come up short once more.

Career best to win 1m Kempton AW Listed race when last seen in December; subsequently gelded; chased home Knight in heavy-ground Group 3 at Newbury in his 2yo season so these conditions won't faze him but he'll need a big career best under his penalty.

7f winner at Royal Ascot (good to firm) on debut and ran well in defeat in four Group races (7f/1m) later as 2yo; visored first time in the Futurity at Doncaster (1m, heavy) on final start and easily dispatched his four rivals on the far side over 2f out, but Auguste Rodin proved much too strong on the near side after this one swerved to join him 1f out; for all those meanderings, it's hard to envisage the tables being turned.

Lightly raced 3yo; finished ahead of three of these when beaten a head in Listed event at Sandown (1m, soft; unraced on good or firmer) last time, matching the form he'd shown in Goodwood Group 2 the time before; will probably stay this longer trip; cheekpieces on again and commands respect.

Five races, all on softer than good; gelded after disappointing in the Greenham at Newbury on reappearance; ran twice over 1m at Goodwood last month and showed improved form when close second of seven in Group 2 last time; carried his head a bit awkwardly and hung that day, which sees him in cheekpieces this time, but he should go well.
