Form & Verdict

Front-runner; looked worth dropping to sprint trips when sixth in 2,000 Guineas and duly posted a clear personal best to win 6f Group 2 Sandy Lane at Haydock last month with plenty in hand; that was on soft ground but he also shaped well on good to firm on only start last year; the Haydock run gives him leading form claims and he's open to further improvement; big chance.

Form & Verdict

In and out in five outings as a 2yo, the highlights being a second to Jasour in the July Stakes at Newmarket and a strong-finishing victory in the Gimcrack at York (again 6f, good to firm); disappointing in the Middle Park on final start; he's the only contender without a run this season, and he'll need a personal best to make a successful reappearance.

Second to Jasour in the July Stakes then got turned over at short odds next time; bounced back to win the Gimcrack (6f, good to firm) but it looked a substandard edition of that York prize; unlikely to follow up.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing in 6f Group 1 races on final two starts last season but got his career firmly back on track with a ready C&D success in the Group 3 Pavilion Stakes seven weeks ago, with Starlust back in sixth; seems equally effective on good to firm and good to soft ground; 2-2 for Jim Crowley; retains untapped potential and might be the answer.

J: Jim Crowley

T: Clive Cox

Disappointing in 6f Group 1 races on final two starts last season (very soft/good to firm) and he's unproven on slow ground; however, the break may have helped and he looked one to follow when winning a Group 2 by 2l at Newmarket (6f, good to firm) last July; interesting contender on his comeback.

Form & Verdict

Lots to find on form after winning a pair of 6f novices at Kempton (AW) and Doncaster (good to firm) in the spring; however, he was pretty impressive on the second occasion and his pedigree (he's by Blue Point out of an unraced sister to the Wokingham and British Champions Sprint winner Deacon Blues) gives real hope that he'll be up to making an impact in Group races in due course; impossible to rule out.

Form & Verdict

Useful as a 2yo in France for Andre Fabre; took his form to a much higher level when making winning start for new yard in Listed race at Epsom (7f, good to soft; unraced on good or firmer) three weeks ago, the first two pulling 9l clear; races freely and should be at least as effective back at 6f; hard to pin down but the Epsom run suggests he's smart and he's one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Came up well short behind Jasour in the Pavilion Stakes but found a chunk of improvement to win handicap at York three weeks later in emphatic style; that makes him one of the leading contenders on the figures, but the drop back to 5f seemed to suit that day and he's not certain to prove quite so effective back at 6f; first-time blinkers add another unknown to the mix.

Lost his unbeaten record when fifth to Elite Status in Listed event at Newbury (6f, good; 18-1; no extra final 1f) last month, but emerged with his reputation intact and this well-bred colt may yet have untapped potential; previous wins had come on the AW at Newcastle; visored for the first time.

Confined to 6f on the AW thus far and hasn't looked back since finishing second on debut, completing four-timer in fillies' Listed race at Chelmsford without much fuss; today's assignment is tougher and the surface is an unknown, but the Chelmsford form has worked out well and she cannot be discounted.

Solid juvenile form included fourths in the Coventry here and the Middle Park; has continued his progress this year, rallying to win Navan Listed race (6f, good/yielding) and only just denied by the smart Bucanero Fuerte in Group 3 at Naas (6f, good); others look likelier winners but he's a reliable sort who should give his running once more.
