Form & Verdict

Son of Camelot who is currently around the 20-1 mark for the Derby; defied market weakness in a 1m1f maiden at Tipperary (yielding) and confirmed himself top class when getting up close home in the Group 1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud in October (1m2f, very soft); had a subsequent Group 3 winner behind him and this week's Dee Stakes runner-up Bracken's Laugh; no question that he sets the standard.

Cost 1,900,000 as a yearling and has all the right entries; connections might have hoped for a better start to his career as he was all out to win his maiden at Navan (1m, yielding) and looked one paced when third to Bremen on his Cork reappearance; however, with his yard finding some form he could easily leave that run behind.

Form & Verdict

Confirmed the promise of his initial Curragh runs when comfortably taking a 1m maiden on the AW at Dundalk, albeit a very winnable race (runner-up now 0-3 at that venue); in the right hands to progress and he holds an Irish 2,000 Guineas entry.

Encouraging debut in a 1m maiden at the Curragh and only found one too good back at that venue over 7f second time out; dam was a Polytrack winner and he looks like a big player if he handles the switch of surface here.

Form & Verdict

Second at Naas (7f) before justifying odds-on favouritism in a 1m maiden at Dundalk; neither race looks any stronger now than it did at the time and he has no loftier entries than this; has to take a huge leap forward.

Form & Verdict

Brother to Yorkshire Oaks/Prix Vermeille winner Warm Heart and holds entries in the King Edward VII Stakes and the Irish Derby; those entries would appear ambitious on his acheivements to date (well held in a Group 2 last season), though he was a late foal and improved for the step up to 1m2f when winning comfortably at Cork (soft; Euphoric in third); having the benefit of a run makes him dangerous.
