Acts well on good to soft and soft but all four wins at about 1m; stays this far on a sharp track but has yet to improve for the trip and also has his share of weight following a Beverley win in April.

Now 4lb lower than his Sandown win (1m2f, good; has won on soft) last July, but he's been very well held in three runs for new yard and remains best watched for now.

Returned from break with novice and handicap AW wins at about 1m2f in late 2023, but he hasn't put it together at this trip and 1m4f in three starts since (cheekpieces latest; now tongue tied); the return to 1m2f can suit but soft ground is not sure to improve matters.

J: Tom Marquand

T: William Haggas

Promise on turf in the first half of 2023 and he returned from five months off to win comfortably in a novice at Wolverhampton (9.4f) and handicap at Newcastle (1m2f) at the end of last year; backward steps in his two starts since, despite prominence in the betting, the latest over 1m4f on soft at Thirsk, but the ground should not be so testing here and he's not dismissed in first-time headgear.

Showed useful form in France despite winning just once on turf (1m1f, soft) from 15 starts; sold for 40,000euros since and gelded; has less to prove under the conditions than some and interesting to see what the market says.

4 yo Colt

Form & Verdict

Both wins over 1m on soft but he coped well with the step up to 1m2f at Goodwood (soft) last time out, when ridden to conserve stamina and putting in strong late work into third behind Maghlaak and Qitaal; needs to show he can repeat it on this more galloping track but a danger to all.

1m win here on soft last October; promising seasonal return in the Lincoln but he was unable to back it up in the Spring Cup two weeks ago (lost a shoe); looks ready for this longer trip now and Jason Watson takes over from a 7lb claimer.

Suited by soft going; successful twice over 1m last season; creditable fourth in the Lincoln on reappearance and ties in with two of today's main players on that form; again has frame possibilities.

Form & Verdict

Won 7f maiden at Doncaster (soft) last spring; has run to a useful level in competitive handicaps since, without finding as much as Maghlaak and Qitaal at Goodwood (1m2f, soft) 23 days ago; it's possible this more conventional track and first-time cheekpieces will help so not ruled out.

Raced only on slower than good; won a 7f maiden last spring and he made a promising seasonal debut when fifth in the Spring Cup at Newbury two weeks ago; this is less competitive and he has the potential for further progress; considered back up in trip.

Lightly raced 5yo who won two of his three starts as a 3yo and showed useful form in defeat in both handicaps in 2023; off the track for 12 months until reappearing at Goodwood (1m2f, soft) 23 days ago and although his narrow win from Qitaal wasn't a cakewalk, he showed a willing attitude and is entitled to improve off 3lb higher.

Remote last of six when odds-on for soft-ground debut; has flourished on the AW since, winning at 1m and 1m2f from four attempts, but although his good fourth of 16 at Newmarket (1m, good) came in a competitive race he still has to prove himself under these different conditions.

10-11 when last of six on debut last April and that's the only time he's raced on turf (soft); absent 255 days before the four runs on AW, including clearcut wins in a 1m maiden and 1m2f handicap; not discredited last time but needs overall improvement on this return to turf in a warm race.

Just the four runs and doubled his tally when returning to 1m2f here four weeks ago and beating a few of these; did have the run of things that day having raced close to a modest pace but he's probably improving (still looks green); up 6lb with Brandon Wilkie again on board.

Form & Verdict

Missed the best part of two years but he had his handicap debut in the bag from some way out at Doncaster (1m2f, soft) in March, where Stressfree chased him home and is weighted to turn the tables; determined effort from the front but went down narrowly to Maghlaak at Goodwood (1m2f, soft) and likely to be involved back on slow going after a good-ground fourth at York.

Form & Verdict

Conditions will suit and he has a useful turnaround in the weights with Qitaal on their form at Doncaster (1m2f, soft) in March when the only one to give that winner a race; has fared much less well since, though, refitted cheekpieces making no difference ten days ago; it's a visor this time but have to be reservations for now.
