Form & Verdict

Won on good ground here (1m2f) and at Newbury (1m4f) last year and that first success was on his seasonal return last May; creditable fourth over 2m on Polytrack when last seen in October and he still looks feasibly treated; yard is in good form and he's respected back in trip on reappearance.

J: William Buick

T: Sir Michael Stoute

Made it 2-4 in handicaps when winning at Newbury (1m4f, good) last month and soft ground may not have suited at Glorious Goodwood; he's just the type his trainer excels with and the step up in trip could prompt further progress, with half-brother Forza Orta having won over 2m here on Wednesday.

Form & Verdict

Useful middle-distance handicapper in his prime but last win was over two years ago and he's finished down the field in all five runs for current yard (first four in Bahrain); mark continues to fall and he wasn't beaten far at Southwell last time but others are preferred.

Won off this mark at Thirsk (1m4f) last September but he ended last season on a low note and was beaten 11l at Epsom on his return last month; has bit to prove again and it would be a concern if forecast rain arrives (all turf wins on good/good to firm).

Well beaten on last season's reappearance but he ran a couple of good races subsequently during a light campaign, including a win at Thirsk (1m4f, good) in September, and he's not ruled out on his return.

Non-runner three times on softer than good in July/August; back on good going when making all and holding on by a neck at Thirsk (1m4f; Furzig third) two weeks ago; 2lb higher today but the step back up in trip should suit and he'd be a major player if he again gets the ground that suits him.

Two wins in France (1m2f/10.5f) in first half of last year but he has a mixed record under both codes in Britain; on reduced mark on this return to the Flat but losing run is mounting up and others are more convincing.

Acts on good to firm and good to soft; well handicapped on his Windsor win (11.4f) last summer but he's lost his way in last four starts including a low-key return at Windsor last month; tongue-tie is now added and he needs to turn things around.

Form & Verdict

Has some ups and downs in his nine-race profile but he won at Doncaster (1m2f, soft) last August and resumed his progress with a 4l win there (1m4f, good to soft) two weeks ago; up 8lb but he had a lot in hand last time and is still unexposed at this trip; major player again, particularly if the forecast rain arrives.

Off the mark at the fifth time of asking in a Doncaster novice (1m2f, soft) last August, but then well held in both handicaps on similar ground over 1m2f/1m6f; makes his AW debut after six months off having been gelded in the meantime; watch market.

Form & Verdict

Very lightly raced 4yo; won at Wolverhampton (1m4f) and Kempton (1m3f) during the winter but he faded back on turf in his hat-trick bid at Windsor (11.4f, good) last month; may have needed that after a break but he needs to kick on again to make a big impact here.

Beaten favourite in bumper on debut; has shown progress in 1m4f novice events at Wolverhampton since, winning the latest by 2l; only one place behind Lartigue the time before; now gives that rival 7lb but still looks one of the main contenders.

Form & Verdict

Won three times on AW since November, including with a strong finish at Chelmsford (1m5f) last month; his last turf win was in July 2021 but he was as good as ever last time and is 7lb lower on this return to grass; dangerous if he can continue the good work.

Effective on all surfaces (4-10 on the AW) and knows how to win but he finds himself on a career-high mark having sprung a surprise at Kempton last weekend; has never been the most consistent and this race is stronger.
