Form & Verdict

By dual Derby winner Camelot; unbeaten in two starts, including a 1m2f Group 1 on very soft ground at Saint-Cloud; had no problem with the switch to good ground when again looking better the further he went in 1m2f Group 3 Derby Trial at Leopardstown; sweated and gave trouble at the start at Epsom and ran a fine race in the circumstances until outpaced; should make a bold bid in rematch with Ambiente Friendly.

Form & Verdict

French-bred won the 1m Group 1 Criterium International on very soft ground at Saint-Cloud last October; way below that level when only fifth in a 1m1f Group 3 on reappearance; beaten at odds-on next time in a Group 3 back at Saint-Cloud; a staying-on seventh in the Prix du Jockey-Club indicates that this trip may help to produce a revival.

Minor winner on debut at Leicester before no match for Ancient Wisdom in a 1m Newmarket Group 3 last October; nothing out of the ordinary about his reappearance in a 1m1f Listed race there in April; a revelation when running away with the Derby Trial at Lingfield; saw out the trip when clear second in the Derby; faces a rematch with the previously unbeaten third Los Angeles; form of Lingfield win franked by Ballydoyle's Illinois in the Queen's Vase.

Big-race entries include the Derby; hooded all starts but not today; plenty of promise last autumn, comfortably making all at Leicester (7f, good to soft) and third in Group 3 at Newmarket (1m, soft); not discredited in Newmarket Listed race (1m1f, good) on return and shaped as if further would suit, but others have been a bit more striking.

Form & Verdict

Sea The Stars colt; merely workmanlike when odds-on winner of 1m Kempton AW novice on second start last autumn; justified strong home reputation when powering clear in a 1m2f conditions race at Leicester; had an unusual profile for this race, having never run in a stakes race, but can be rated a serious contender nonetheless.

Big-race entries include Derby; 800,000gns yearling buy, by Frankel from family of Golan; won maiden at Gowran (1m, heavy) in October on second start, despite carrying head high; 7-1, stayed on never nearer, passing odds-on stablemate Illinois, when second of five in Group 3 at Leopardstown (1m2f, heavy) five weeks ago; this longer trip will help with further progress.

Half-brother to Santiago who won this event in 2020; won maiden at Galway last September and easily made all in 1m1f Group 3 at Leopardstown, with a creditable third in Group 2 Beresford Stakes in between; needs to have progressed considerably since disappointing Chester Vase run but that is not out of the question.
