Form & Verdict

Won debut at Salisbury (7f, good to soft) last May and followed up at Newmarket (1m, good) in another novice race two weeks later; carried head high in both, showing inexperience or that he's not entirely straightforward; also absent since and all of the others in this race have better form but there was a suggestion of major reserves in the latter win and he'll probably be a Group-race performer.

Impressive on handicap debut (soft) and landed the Britannia (good to firm; clear best form) at the Royal meeting, both over C&D; couldn't carry on the good work in a soft-ground Group 3 in August and returns to work here off 10lb higher than his latest win; not fully exposed but needs to find more against older horses.

Form figures read 22111, most recently winning the Britannia at Royal Ascot (1m, good to firm) where he collared a far-side rival late on and finished well clear of the others in his near-side group; acts on soft; improving colt who has clear Group-race potential; respected.

Form & Verdict

Won his first three career starts in spring 2022 and he was bang there, not getting best of runs, when fourth in the Group 1 St James's Palace at Royal Ascot (1m) that June; the clear pick on the latter form but unraced on softer than good and had only one race last term, when well below form in Group 2 at Newmarket in September; entered in next month's Group 1 Lockinge and it will be interesting to see his market strength.

Form & Verdict

4-7 on AW, in career-best form last month, compared to 0-5 on turf; his best turf efforts are still very useful but he's unraced on softer than good, so that poses a question mark over whether he can make the most of the good form chance arising from his latest AW run.

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.

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.
