Ex-French 4yo who has bits of useful form for new yard, most recently eighth to the Wathnan first string in the 7f handicap at Royal Ascot; possibilities in this less taxing event; acts on AW.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 4yo who ran promisingly at Newbury six weeks ago when back from lengthy layoff and bidding for a 6f turf hat-trick; looks ready for a crack at this new trip and siblings include an AW winner for his connections; remains open to further progress; shortlisted.

J: Billy Loughnane

T: James Tate

Confirmed the promise of his debut fifth at Ascot last September (6f, good) when running out the easy winner of a 6f maiden at Ayr (good to soft) later that month; still looked very green when hitting the front last time and he's open to further progress in 2023; penalised as a result but Billy Loughnane's claim very useful; major player.

Useful on turf, though is rather exposed in that sphere now; below par in notable handicap most recently; interesting in this scenario, having won a Listed contest on sole AW attempt.

J: Hector Crouch

T: Ralph Beckett

Career best to win 1m Kempton AW Listed race when last seen in December; subsequently gelded; chased home Knight in heavy-ground Group 3 at Newbury in his 2yo season so these conditions won't faze him but he'll need a big career best under his penalty.

Disappointing favourite at Kempton last time but has proved largely consistent/progressive on AW otherwise and may well rebound; went close at same venue (7f) earlier in May; remains of interest.

J: Neil Callan

Two wins and two seconds from four starts over 7f on Polytrack, latterly when making all over C&D on his comeback off 6lb lower; looked to have no excuses on Tapeta last time, again from the front, and this is a deeper race.

Midfield in the Royal Hunt Cup last week and still has a modest strike-rate on turf; beat Zip in clearcut style over C&D in May, taking AW record to 3-8; may have more to offer back on this surface.

Form & Verdict

Similar type to United Approach, having raced only four times; successful in 3yo handicap at Kempton (7f) most recently, taking AW form figures to 121; now upped in grade but receives weight all round; the type to improve further and commands respect.

Raced only on turf; not in top form this term but has become nicely treated, having slipped to last winning mark; landed a major 7f handicap at Ascot last July; good chance provided he takes to AW and revives.

Ran creditably at Chester in hat-trick attempt but form dipped at same venue later in May; unconvincing record in AW handicaps (here) and he's higher in the weights now; opposed.

J: David Egan

Suited by ground softer than good; smart performance when third of 21 in the Irish Lincolnshire on Curragh reappearance (1m, heavy) and enough in last weekend's Newbury Spring Cup seventh to think he's still in form; respected back in slightly calmer waters.

Two turf wins in Ireland; down the field at York on stable/seasonal debut; best watched unless the market suggests he's likely to leave that effort behind; second AW attempt.
