Form & Verdict

All three runs on the AW, narrowly winning a Kempton maiden in January (7f); much better form when 3l fourth of five behind subsequent 2,000 Guineas winner Notable Speech in a 1m conditions event there the following month and not seen since; interesting to see how he fares now switched to turf.

Big step forward from debut fifth (sent off favourite over 6f at Lingfield) when getting up on the line over 7f here; 1m could see him in an ever better light but more is needed.

Only fifth when favourite for 6f maiden at Lingifeld two months ago but showed some promise all the same; bred to be suited by this longer trip and should improve.

Form & Verdict

Progressive in three starts last autumn, winning a Newmarket maiden (7f, good to firm) with more in hand than the head margin would suggest and defying a penalty in a Lingfield novice (1m, AW); may need further than this now, but likely there is more to come from him as a 3yo and he shouldn't be passed over at all lightly.

170,000gns yearling who holds an Irish 2,000 Guineas entry; plenty of promise when second of 11 on his Ascot debut (7f, good) in September (form worked out well) before edging out a subsequent winner at Newmarket (7f, good to firm) three weeks later; half-brother to a winner over C&D and a major player despite the penalty.

Form & Verdict

Enjoyed a most productive first season, winning four of his five starts including impressive successes in the sales race at the York Ebor Meeting (6f, good to firm) and the Listed Two Year Old Trophy at Redcar (6f, good); out of a winner at up to 1m, so should stay the longer trip, and he is a major player if returning in the same vein.

Never gave his rivals a sniff when impressively making all in a valuable sales race at York's Ebor meeting (6.5f, good to firm) and again ran well in another at Doncaster, for all that his RPR dipped to 88 (100 at York); may need fast ground to be at his very best (rain is forecast) but is the most likely winner for sure.

Made all for an impressive success in similar event at the York Ebor festival (6f) three weeks ago, taking record to 3-3; raced only on good/firmer; could well extend his sequence, being a progressive and unbeaten colt who has a leading chance at the weights.

0-5 but has been narrowly beaten on two occasions and got no run when fourth of eight behind Teraabb (runs 4.35) on seasonal/handicap debut at Newbury (7f, good to soft) three weeks ago; races off the same mark and worth a second look.

Form & Verdict

Last five outings have been abroad, including winning a Listed contest at Cologne (7.5f, soft) in September; ran with credit in three outings on good ground at Meydan (7f/1m) at the start of the year, but looks vulnerable to something a bit more progressive.
