Form & Verdict

Flourished since dropped back to 6f, finishing close up in last season's Ayr Gold Cup before seeing off 21 rivals in fine style at York last October (soft); needed every yard of the trip when making a winning reappearance at Doncaster in March (soft) before finding things happening a shade too quickly for him on quicker ground in last month's Duke Of York Clipper Stakes; today's stiffer test will suit and this C&D winner should be arriving on the scene late; strong contender for a trainer who has won the last two runnings.

Raced mainly at 7f/1m until last autumn when the drop to 6f seemed to suit him and he posted a career best to win a big-field handicap at York (soft) in October in emphatic style; well worth his place in this higher grade, and a leading contender if ready to roll after a break.

High-class operator at 6f and 7f, winning twice at Group 1 level and five times in Group 2s, as well as a Listed event on AW; narrowly beaten in Group 1 races at Longchamp and Ascot last October; unpenalised on this rare Group 3 appearance; key player.

Progressed well as a 3yo and the good work continued on AW last November, following a stylish Kempton handicap win with a cosy Listed success at Lingfield (both 6f); fair third at Lingfield on his return in February and a below-par effort at Newbury last month is easy enough to forgive; still has potential on AW.

Good handicap form on AW this year, following a Kempton win in February with an impressive C&D success on Good Friday; ran okay in a Group 2 at York's Dante meeting and then suffered a luckless passage in last week's Wokingham; right up against it on BHA figures but that may underestimate his chance; each-way claims back on AW.

Largely consistent 2023 campaign included a success in French Group 3 and two good efforts at Group 1 level, doing well to finish third at Ascot the final time (met traffic issues); clear possibilities granted ideal ground (peak form on soft).

Tough performer at two, winning a Hamilton maiden and a Doncaster Listed event (both 6f) as well as chasing home Vandeek in the Richmond Stakes; flopped in the Greenham on his return ten weeks ago (7f, good to soft) and now comes here with a point to prove.

Tough sort who won two 7f handicaps last summer before hitting the crossbar in the Ayr Gold Cup; ended his 3yo campaign with a close second in Listed company at Redcar (7f, good); better than ever when second in the Victoria Cup last month (7f, good); can make his mark in Group races and returning to 6f won't be an issue; AW debut.

3-3 on AW as a 2yo, recording some smart Topspeed figures and looking a natural on Tapeta; he has done the bulk of his racing since in the UAE, winning a Jebel Ali handicap in March (6f, dirt; RPR 96); lots to find on BHA ratings but there's a good chance he'll outrun his mark.

Form & Verdict

Had some smart handicap form on turf last year and he was a revelation switched to this track over the winter, finishing third in a Listed event over C&D before two stylish handicap wins (6f and 5f); a shade disappointing here on Good Friday and he was unable to exploit his lower turf mark in last week's Wokingham, albeit that he would have finished a fair bit closer had he seen any daylight in the closing stages; may yet do better on AW but such progress will be required in a cracking renewal of this Group 3 event.

In good order last autumn, producing a career best to win a 7f Listed event at Newbury before showing better form in defeat when beaten a nose in a hot 7f handicap at Ascot; he has run creditably in three runs this season without suggesting he is the answer this time.

Form & Verdict

Progressive at two, winning a big sales race at Doncaster before far too good for 15 rivals in the Two-Year-Old Trophy at Redcar; impressed at Ascot on last season's reappearance (Group 3; 6f, good) and ended his 3yo campaign with a solid fourth in a Deauville Group 1; this is his AW debut but his dam won at the track and there's no obvious reason he wouldn't be effective on it; one of two runners for Karl Burke.

Made the running for two of his last three wins at 6f (good to soft/good) and good to firm was thought responsible for a poor show at Haydock in May; something to prove now but competitive on earlier results.
