Form & Verdict

Yet to win this year but he's shown he retains a good chunk of his ability and a well-run race over 5f on good or slower ground looks ideal; apprentice takes off a handy 5lb and he's high on the list.

Form & Verdict

Back on the scoresheet with a 5f AW win at Lingfield in January; string of good efforts since, including an Epsom win last month, and when fifth at Chester two weeks ago he had to use a lot of energy early to lead from stall 12; effective on good to soft but wouldn't want it slower.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 4yo who has shown improved form in two runs this year, following a 6f win at Windsor last month with a near miss over 6f here three weeks ago (heavy); should have the pace to cope with 5f and there could be further progress forthcoming.

Form & Verdict

Placed in Group 1 company for Nigel Tinkler; lost his way for that yard in 2023 and there was no improvement switched to Clive Cox for his final run as a 5yo; he's had wind surgery over the winter and this is much weaker than he's used to; betting can guide.

Over three years since his last win; placed in Group 1 company over C&D last summer; bitterly disappointing this year, often finishing weakly, but he's plummeted down the weights and he now starts out for a new stable; carries obvious risk but it wouldn't be a bolt from the blue were he to win easily either.

Now 13lb lower than when second to Angle Land in this race 12 months ago; hasn't quite found his best this year but the return to Goodwood, where he invariably runs well, looks a good move.

Exposed 7yo but runner-up in this 12 months ago before going one better over C&D in May off 1lb higher and he was a tad unfortunate not to win again; capable when fresh and good to soft would be okay should it rain.

Capable sprinter, often at a lower level, and he's gone close off similar marks since his Newmarket win in May; rider's claim useful and he should make another bold bid.

Progressive 2yo but he hasn't won since September 2022; placed in his last two starts but they were small-field Class 5s and he'll need to up his game to take this.

Still seeking his first win for this stable and he dropped right away at Kempton (6f) on his return to action last month; down in class but lots to prove on slower than good.
