Dropped away after racing freely over 8.5f at Epsom nine days ago; may benefit from this drop back in trip and remains well treated on peak performance, namely a comfortable win off just 1lb lower at Musselburgh.

Had wind and gelding operations since last appearance; has never won away from Musselburgh but is quite interesting on seasonal debut, having won easily (off 4lb lower) on reappearance last term.

Juvenile campaign featured a debut win at Yarmouth and good third in Newmarket Group 3; never dangerous in notable 3yo handicap at Haydock (1m) on reappearance but may do better with the outing under his belt.

Gelded ahead of debut; made up a lot of late ground to win going away at Yarmouth (6f, good to soft) but couldn't overcome another slow beginning in a Group 3 here (7f, good to firm), though still ran well (just ahead of Change For Good); looks on a learning curve and may well have more to offer.

Favourably handicapped on plenty of form, 2024 aside; has a strike-rate of just 1-25 for current yard but went very close off 3lb higher in this race 12 months ago (good to firm) and can't be ruled out.

Listed winner in France; 0-8 in Britain but has encouraging form this term, most recently second over C&D (good) behind a progressive rival; respected off a mark that remains 19lb lower than this time two years ago.

Useful in his younger days in France before proving tough to place for this yard last year during a limited campaign; gelded since and showed enough on his AW comeback from nine months off to suggest he's on a competitive mark now.

Form & Verdict

Showed steady progress in his turf races last season, winning at Newmarket (7f, soft) the final time; form dipped at Epsom nine days ago but may rebound with that reappearance effort under his belt.

Form & Verdict

Very productive on AW, including this year, and latest effort (when bidding for five-timer) can be marked up; likely player if transferring form back to turf but his record in this sphere doesn't augur well.

Mixed results in Bahrain for new stable this winter; on a career-high mark returned to home soil but should take well to Goodwood, having done his winning for previous yard at Brighton (twice) and Epsom.

Progressive at 7f on fast ground, perhaps disadvantaged by track position at Chepstow in June but impressive at Brighton either side; up 6lb for latest win in less competitive race but still has potential.

Showed clear signs of a return to form in C&D event (good) last month and ties in with Toimy Son on that effort; attractively handicapped off 7lb below last winning mark and looks one for the shortlist.

Well treated on his progressive form last spring (won on soft at Ascot off 2lb higher) and he did make some late headway from the rear in the Spring Cup at Newbury on his reappearance a fortnight ago; no shock were he to bounce back to form with a bang.
