3yo campaign featured wins in the Chester Vase and Geoffrey Freer, plus good second in the St Leger; appeared to need his Newbury reappearance run and should be spot-on for this return to the Roodee; leading player provided there's no jar in the ground (underperformed on good to firm last year).

Reappeared with an easy win in the Chester Vase (1m4f, soft) in May; disappointing on good to firm in both the Derby (favourite) and at Royal Ascot, before restating his effectiveness with more give in the ground when making all at 5-6 in Group 3 at Newbury (extended 1m5f, good to soft) four weeks ago; may well have his ground again, brings among the best form with those two wins (particularly Chester) and this trip looks within reach.

Raced mostly on good/firmer; solid 2022 campaign featured a success in the Great Voltigeur and creditable fourth in the Melbourne Cup; unable to repeat that form during a light 2023 season but holds good claims provided he takes well to first-time blinkers on 2024 reappearance.

Last season was a good one, winning the Bahrain Trophy and Great Voltigeur before finishing fourth when favourite for the Melbourne Cup; made an encouraging reappearance in the Group 2 Hardwicke (1m4f) and his no-show in the King George (pulled hard; 33-1) was the first poor performance of his career; boasts compelling form claims back at Listed level; first-time cheekpieces.

Successful in the Bahrain Trophy and Great Voltigeur last summer before running creditably when favourite for the Melbourne Cup (soft); respectable fourth to Pyledriver in the Hardwicke (C&D, good to firm) on reappearance and he's yet to run a bad race; however, this looks his stiffest-ever assignment.

Really smart effort to win a 1m4f Meydan handicap last January and not far off that level when runner-up in 2m handicaps at Kempton and Newcastle this winter; his very best form has come over further so a slight worry if this gets tactical.

Four wins at up to 1m7f in France, including a 1m3f Group 2 in May 2022; made debut for this yard (same ownership) in 1m4f Listed race at Chester three weeks ago when third of seven was as good as he's ever been but he was two and a half lengths behind Al Qareem, who he again meets at level weights; bit to find but it's only his second go for this stable.
