Form & Verdict

Went close at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) on sole 2yo run and comfortably won Newcastle novice (1m, AW) in March; not bred for sprinting but showed speed when sixth in the 2,000 Guineas (1m, good) three weeks ago and is well worth a go at this trip; dam was effective on soft; interesting contender.

Dam is closely related to connections' 2023 Queen Anne winner Triple Time; promising colt who finished second in C&D maiden last September, then went one better at Newcastle (1m, AW; readily) in March; his form has received a couple of strong boosts in recent weeks; upped markedly in class but has potential and could go well at big odds.

Well-bred colt who was sent off 50-1 for his Newmarket debut (1m, good to firm) last September, but was beaten just half a length into second of the 17 runners (clear of the third); his Group 1 winning dam scored on Polytrack and this Irish, 2,000 Guineas entry is much respected.

Form & Verdict

Made all in Group 3 Horris Hill at Newmarket (7f, heavy) last November and ran well in defeat over 1m/7f on first four starts this year; weakened in first-time blinkers (retained) in the recent French 2,000 Guineas (1m, soft) and he's worth a crack at a sprint trip, but improvement is needed.

Form & Verdict

Carries a 3lb penalty and he's the only one of these who lacks a recent run; however, he holds leading form claims having gone 4-4 in his 2yo campaign, winning Group 1s at Deauville (6f, very soft; Morny) and Newmarket (6f, good to firm; Middle Park) on his final two starts; could be tough to beat.

Listed runner-up at Doncaster (6f, heavy) last October and close fifth to Esquire on reappearance in Group 3 Greenham at Newbury (7f, good to soft); however, he needs something extra today and also has to bounce back from a below-par run at Newmarket (7f, good) three weeks ago.

Course debut winner who was second three times in a row in Group 3/Listed races last year before winning Listed race at York in October (6f, soft; Esquire second); reappeared with encouraging third in Group 3 Commonwealth Cup Trial at Ascot (6f, good to soft) and he's an each-way contender today.

Form & Verdict

Comfortably won sole 2yo start last July (5f, heavy) and reappeared with novice win at Hamilton (5f, good to soft) three weeks ago; others have significantly more substance to their form but it's hard to knock an unbeaten record and he could have more to offer; not ruled out each-way.

Justified odds-on favouritism and created good impression when winning comfortably on debut at Beverley (5f, heavy) last summer; not seen again since and encounters less testing ground here but that heavy market support, combined with his Commonwealth Cup entry, suggests he's highly regarded.
